Intentional and engaging
1 March 2020 | by jcubmailSee all my reviews

Play the Flute is less intending to entertain as challenge the viewer. It is well written, well paced and well developed. In general the main character is designed to be modeled rather than be relatable, but the everyday struggles faced by the teenagers are where the relatability can be found. I, as a general rule prefer that strong, selfless lead character (ex Captain America) over the troubled, relatable heroes that find redemption in their own strength (ex Iron Man), because such redemption is based on a lie. God is glorified through Play the Flute first and foremost, and it is refreshing to find people investing in movies that have more of a purpose than to make a quick buck. I highly recommend this movie for teens and adults and caution for younger kids based on the content of the films main conflict. It was handled very tastefully but inquisitive young minds will likely be asking questions trying to delve into conversations you may not have wanted to discuss yet.
