Trivia

During the opening scene set in 1985, young Bart is riding his bike through town. He passes a movie theater showing the titles of Jaws 3-D (1983) and The Goonies (1985) on the marquee. Dennis Quaid, who plays Bart's father Arthur, played the lead role of Mike Brody in Jaws 3-D in 1983. See more »

Goofs

In the 1985 scenes, the record store has a poster in the window for the first .38 Special record. This album came out in 1977, and was not a big commercial success at its time of release; its popularity was eclipsed by the band's subsequent releases. Additionally, it was already horribly out of date by the time this scene is set; no record store would be likely to display a poster for an album eight years old that was not commercially successful.

Quotes

Brickell: Let me ask you something Bart, what are you running from?
Bart: My dad. He, uh, he...
Brickell: ...he beat you, didn't he? Ya ain't got no poker face kid.
Bart: I carry that. I have to live with that, you know. I always will.
Brickell: Then write about it. Stop running from it. Let that pain become your inspiration.

Most powerful Movie I Ever Watched
16 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

This movie is so moving and is an absolute must- see. The whole movie theatre was in tears from this touching story. So many messages of forgiveness, hope, inspiration, family, etc are shown, and you are sure to cry. This movie has changed my entire perspective on MercyMe's I Can Only Imagine, and it breathes life into the lyrics of the song. Grab some tissues and friends and go see it now! Your spirit will thank you.
