Virtuous Film Review
I recently heard from the amazing Elliott from Edify Media, Inc. about a new movie called “Virtuous” that will be coming out in June of 2015. It stars Erik Estrada, and from the reviews, looked to be a great film. Who doesn’t remember the good old “Ponch”? His acting has always been great, and any time I see him on TV, it makes me smile.
The “Virtuous” movie was about a woman, who had a pretty rough life (as well as past), and was wrongly accused for a crime that was actually committed against her. Due to the person who committed the crime being a well-known rich guy’s son, things got a bit tricky.
There was a great story to go with “Virtuous” and actually had many different personal stories that pertained to many of the characters. It let you learn from each one, and what they were dealing with in their own lives, and see how with God, all things can become new. Too many people in today’s world are either falsely accused of things, or don’t have the courage to stand up against those that are doing wrong in this world. If you see something that you know is illegal, incorrect or unsafe, then say something! Witnessing something and keeping your mouth shut, in my opinion, makes that person guilty, as well, in some circumstances. I know everyone is afraid of being sued, or being hurt, but I always want to put the person who is involved in a place of being a friend, or family – would you keep quiet then?
The end of the “Virtuous” movie was wonderful, and really makes you wonder what happened to certain characters after the credits. 🙂 I could definitely see a part 2 of “Virtuous“. It would be great to go even further with the stories of the characters involved!
“Virtuous” is a movie, with some topics that really aren’t for young children, but like us watching it with our son (who’s 14), or if you have kids around his age, it could really open up some conversation about life in this world, what people have to deal with, and what’s the right thing to do!! It would really be a great one for a youth group to watch, and have a bible study that goes with it, for things of this world that pertain to the topic.
Thanks Edify Media, Inc. for letting me view this great film with my family!! The characters were great and the story really makes you see that there are still people in this world that care. I definitely recommend this movie.

Good for you!! We need more people like that in this world. Too many are afraid of what might happen. :p
What a great storyline! This would be a film I’d love to watch. I agree, I think sometimes not saying something about a wrongdoing can make that person guilty, too.
