This is a great dvd for everyone but I would say that it is especially good for teens. There are some intense scenes. The gospel is a continued theme through the movie. Good acting etc. It does hold ones interest. I would certainly recommend it.
The story line was good and the movie was good. I think the aspect of a black couple being foster parents to a white teen who had baggage from his past impressed me the most about this film. The foster parents as well had baggage from their past. Both teen and parents had to learn to move forward and trust each other.
I purchased this movie after reading the positive reviews on this site. I was not disappointed. My family really enjoyed it; we are a family of predominantly males and most movies are geared to the female audience! It is difficult to find good value entertainment and I don't always buy a movie in hopes of a Gospel message when I am looking for entertainment. However, I found this movie to have good message and was quite appropriate for our movie night. As to be expected, there was gang-related violence and blood, but all subjects dealt with were done in a very subtle manner and there were no inappropriate scenes of any nature.... for which I was thankful.
