The Runner From Ravenshead is an outstanding Independent film produced by the Steege Family. Although it is their first film, it is high quality and very well acted. It definitely doesn't have the feel of a first film. The music was professionally done, and the storyline is an excellent allegory of the prisons we face in life and how we can only find refuge in Jesus.
This film was acted by the five Steege children, from ages 9 and under. The youngest was two at the time! This alone makes the video worth watching! All five of the children are tremendous actors! I loved the character Henry, played by a six year old. He provided great slapstick comedy, and has a charming personality! My entire family from teenagers all the way up to adults loved this outstanding film. It is well worth seeing, and I would recommend it to anyone! I can't wait to see what's next from the Steege family!
This film is completely family-friendly and has an excellent Christian message.
We had the privilege of seeing this movie at a Christian film festival and were simply amazed by the quality! It truly is "Little Rascals meets Pilgrim's Progress"! It was so much fun to hear the laughter through the audience and to see the smiles of delight on faces as everyone watched a movie that is truly unique.
The all-child cast (all siblings) do a superb job! The music is masterful! And, the message is refreshing.
If your trying to decide upon a great gift or film for your own family, I highly recommend this one! You will not be disappointed.
