Reviews:

Finally a clean movie that actually teaches a life lesson!
It may not be as much of an action packed! with explosions!! and superheros!!! movie as we have grown accustom to recently, but it is defiantly worth the watch. It still grows with suspense while teaching important life lessons that everyone should be able to relate to in one way or another.

There should be more movies and stories like this one that can entertain you while still having substance that an adult or young adult can follow. It tells a story and keeps attention without breasts, sex or special effects.

I would recommend this movie for everyone to see!

No Mention of Jesus
I give the makers credit for unapologetically retelling a predictable story, but not preaching in the process. It could be for someone of any religion. Jesus is never even mentioned. The people who give him advice do it modestly.

However, just for the record, there is nothing wrong with living in a big city, being an investor, or enjoying material possessions. But it does matter what products and projects you support. In this case he financed a video game that may deaden the senses of our youth, and a movie that proclaims the world a dark place without a solution.

He did earn his inheritance to a degree, since he had been working on the farm for many years and lent his savvy to the operation. Manual labor is not for everyone. This movie tried to portray it as superior to business deals, but both are important.

The lack of identification of the setting made sense, since they wanted the story to stand for itself, and since the small budget could not take it to L.A. If you read about the film, you see that it was Raleigh, N.C. and the sweet coffee girl is from the area in real life. It wasn’t meant to be a story about L.A. or any particular city, but rather the lifestyle of any generic town.

Repentance is universally possible and not unique to Christianity. We never hear that he accepts Jesus upon his return. A Jew or Unitarian can repent too.

The three leads were excellent. The main character had charisma and gravitas, the party girl played worn out but savvy well, and the Barista girl showed real girl-next-door emotion.

Nice picture. It’s not exciting, but you may enjoy the setting and the basic message as portrayed by attractive leads and simple dialog.
