Connect With Word Films
I love films where there is no sex, no violence or no bad language but is still entertaining and uplifting. Break Away is one of those films. A movie that I can feel okay about my daughter walking in and seeing and hearing it. A movie that brings me closer to God rather than further away.
There are a few issues with the movie. The sound does seem to be off and sometimes it is difficult to understand their accents, but the message makes up for it. I know this movie won’t be an Oscar winner, but it is a movie that we all need to watch and own.
Movies with a message! Just what we need.
