For a long time Christian movies have been….well let’s just admit it, cheesy.
A few here and there have stood out and not been that way, but not that many.
Enter October Baby. a NON-CHEESY Christian movie. *Cue the whoops and cheers*
I saw this movie back in October, in a per-release showing. It was amazing. It’s higher quality that Courageous.
October Baby is opening nation-wide on March 23rd. (3 days from the time of this writing.)
If you see one movie in theaters all year, let it be this one.
The acting is great. The cinematography is gorgeous. The music is perfect. The romance is really sweet. 🙂
I pretty much have nothing bad to say about this movie.
Here’s the synopsis:
“You saw me before I was born.” Psalm 139:16 (NLT)
As the curtain rises, Hannah hesitantly steps onto the stage for her theatrical debut in college. Yet before she can utter her first lines, Hannah—unscripted—collapses in front of the stunned audience.
After countless medical tests, all signs point to one underlying factor: Hannah’s difficult birth. This revelation is nothing compared to what she then learns from her parents: she was actually adopted … after a failed abortion attempt.
Bewildered, angered, and confused, Hannah turns for support to Jason, her oldest friend. Encouraged by his adventurous spirit, Hannah joins his group of friends on a Spring Break road trip, embarking on a journey to discover her hidden past … and find hope for her unknown future.
In the midst of her incredible journey, Hannah finds that life can be so much more than what you have planned.
and the trailer:
Keep your eyes out for future stuff by Jon and Andrew Erwin. It’s going to be good.
