The year is 1861. As President Lincoln calls for 75,000 men to join the Union army, the nation teeters on the brink of The Civil War. Meanwhile, a more covert battle waged by the Underground Railroad has been raging for decades. Station master William Hanby helps runaway slaves reach freedom, dangerously defying the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 and putting his own family in peril. The risk doubles when a bounty hunter shows up determined to make money by capturing escapees and returning them to their masters.
An inspirational family film, The Light of Freedom will educate and entertain you as it follows the stories of runaway slaves longing to be reunited with their families and the real-life historical heroes who risked their lives to save them. Dove approved (12+). Widescreen. Approx. 123 minutes.

TrevorAge: 35-44Gender: male1 Stars Out Of 5Very DisappointingFebruary 23, 2016TrevorAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1This was a very disappointing movie. We were expecting much more than this movie provided. The music and the acting made it feel like it was a church play. Even a retired pastor and his wife were quite surprised by this movie. The running joke was if we wanted pie. None of the four of us turned it off because we thought the others were enjoying it, but afterwards the discussion was how disappointing it was. Although it's about history and the underground railroad, there are so many other movies that are much better and worth the time with watching with your family than this one.
Iaci Flanders5 Stars Out Of 5Very engaging!November 25, 2015Iaci FlandersQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I study a lot of history. Love the story of the abolitionists along the Ohio River. I have been there to visit. It was great to see the places in the movie. So glad they kept everything period-appropriate. They should follow up with the story of John Rankin of Ripley, Ohio. I'm sure they would do an excellent job!!!
