I must confess: I had serious doubts about the quality and contents of this movie! But notice, I used the past tense "had".
I became acquainted with this film through a series of Providential events: Shortly after becoming familiar with iTunes, I loaded all of my CD's on it for archival purposes. Then, I bought my first iPod (a fourth generation iPod Photo, which STILL runs!), then became familiar with podcasts. Looking for podcasts from Christians, I stumbled upon one entitled SquareTalkRadio. One of the interviews was with a pair of twin brothers named Alex and Brett Harris, brothers of the author of, I Kissed Dating Goodbye, Joshua Harris. Unfortunately, SquareTalkRadio was short-lived but not before I heard of [...], the Website of the Harris twins' ministry for teenagers. Soon, I found myself attending one of their conferences in Plano, TX. Afterwards, I became acquainted with a local young aspiring actor and director, Marshall Sherman, who in turn, promoted HeuMoore Productions.
It was during my introduction of HeuMoore Productions ([...]) and, at the time, their production of "The Widow's Might", which has won the "Audience Choice" Award, the "Best of Festival" Award, and runner-up for "Best Feature Film" and the second year in a row that HueMoore has come home with the Audience Choice award!
So, here's a film, a movie, which, like the challenges of Alex and Brett Harris' Rebelution, completely produced and directed by teenagers (and to my understanding, all homeschooled).
At first, I thought it somewhat campy and difficult to watch. But, as the story unfolded, I founded it to be much more than that. It had meat, bone and marrow within the story.
My next question is posed to John Moore: "What is the next movie and when will it be released?" I can hardly wait to see it.
It had excellent cinematography, a motivating theme, wonderful actors, great principles, amazing songs, and a perfect ending!
This movie is so full of truth, life, joy and humor it is bound to keep you captivated all the way to the end.
I highly recommend this film!
