About the Movie:
Matthew Stevenson is a troubled kid from a broken home. When he vandalizes the local church to get back at his parents, Matthew has to repair the damage to the church to avoid criminal charges. While working at the church, he meets Ernest (John Ratzenberger), an accomplished wood carver who created the intricate woodwork decoration that Matthew destroyed. Ernest has become something of a hermit, but reluctantly comes out of reclusion to help repair the church. Now Ernest and Matthew must work together to preserve the church’s beautiful antiquity, and along the way, they also manage to restore their faith in God and in life.
You know that by now, I love any faith based movies. I love building up my collection of family friendly, faith based movies. With movies today it is difficult to find ones that even with a PG rating, are suitable for young children. This one is perfect for Easter and Mother’s Day – both of which are coming up!
This movie is filled with hope and faith – a great story for those who are struggling with youth in their life. I like that I don’t have to worry about my four year old seeing this with me. A great message anytime of year, but perfect with Easter coming up. I am glad that I can add this one to my collection. Of course, you know the story will end well, but seeing the journey to the end is well worth it. The acting starts off a little cheesy, but really, the message takes over and you really root for the characters.
