I received King’s Faith to review from FlyByPromotions. I didn’t really know what to expect before watching it. I had gone to the website and checked out a few things, and really didn’t know what it was all about. Now that we’ve seen it, I’m going to be telling our church youth group to make a movie night and purchase a copy to show to the kids. This has a lot of great information in it to start a great dialogue over things that each and every one of them might be involved in somehow.
The story was amazing, the actors were great and my husband and I were actually able to have a conversation about what was involved. Just like most of the other movies, when the end came, I was praying it would have said “King’s Faith 2” will be released on……
I want to know what happened at the dance!!!!!
This was a great movie and one that I think we’ll wait awhile to show our son (who’s 12), since there was a bit of stuff in here that I think takes a bit more maturity to understand. I’m sure he’s seen some of it in shows he’s watched, but I just want him to have the intelligence of how God works in this type of thing before we sit down to watch it.
I’m praying that our youth group might do a movie night with it, since then it would be multiple kids with the adults able to discuss things and not be worried about telling your parents certain things, you know? There are always those times in life, it seems easier to converse with others than family, especially in some instances like bullying, etc. I pray that our son is open with us and that we make it known that we are here for him to speak with, but working with a group of kids who might have other ideas, and other explanations, might help a lot.
Please note: Film IS rated PG-13 for violence, drug content, and thematic events, but I would describe it as a cross between the movies, “Fireproof” and “To Save a Life”
About KING’S FAITH
Eighteen foster homes. Nine arrests. One life-changing moment.
After Brendan King’s life spiraled to rock bottom, the teen found hope in a new relationship with Christ while serving time in a juvenile penitentiary. Recently released from prison, Brendan finds solace in the foster home of a couple struggling with suppressed grief. As the city-bred teen enrolls at a suburban high school, his support comes from a group of believers. Yet the bonds of his old way of life—and the gang that wants to know where he hid their stash on a long-ago night—are strong.
In his darkest moment, Brendan found faith. Now he must decide if it’s worth the price to hold on to it. Available now on DVD from Provident Films, KING’S FAITH stars Emmy Award winner Lynn Whitfield, along with Crawford Wilson, Kayla Compton, and James McDaniel.
KING’S FAITH is produced by DiBella and Faith Street Film Partners LLC, a Rochester, NY-based collective of filmmakers, churches, investors, and supporters.
