Chasing Grace (DVD Review)
Fooling yourself is easy – Forgiving yourself isn’t

I received the Chasing Grace movie from Elliott at Edify Media and couldn’t wait to watch it.  It looked like it had a really interesting story.

The movie started out a bit weird, but got to the point in just a bit.  Having it skip from one time to then before, to then after was odd, but it helped to make the story make sense and draw you in even more.  It really brings home the point of gun safety and parental guidance.  Having someone who ending up drinking a bit much and not putting a gun away right led to a horrible thing for a family to endure!  It was a blessing to see the ending…which I won’t give away…but it shows that we’re all human, but we can also all forgive!

This movie is one that I would definitely recommend to anyone who has dealt with family issues, or just like to watch great movies.  Thank you to Elliott for letting me review another great movie!

About The Chasing Grace Movie:

graceA tragic accident threatens to destroy a pastor’s family and sets into motion a complex betrayal between two brothers, while exposing secrets no one wants to face.

Pastor Jonathan Matheson lives in a world of black and white, yet finds a way to navigate the “grey in-between” to work to his advantage, while facing one of the most tragic moments of his life. Set in small-town America and woven inside a tale of redemption, “Chasing Grace” is a story of how one family takes on the burden of guilt in order to make sense of their loss. While pointing the finger of blame at his brother, Pastor Jonathan also chooses to hide from the truth while trying to escape his own personal demons. “Chasing Grace” is loosely based upon true events and provides a powerful story about the redeeming power of forgiveness.

Chasing Grace is a gritty, real and powerful film that pulls no punches, but still has a heart. It’s a story that explores the redemptive power of forgiveness.
