I received the Wildflower DVD from IconMediaGroup to watch and let you know what I thought. Looking at the previews that I found online, it looked like a really good movie. Unfortunately, there are many of us who have people in our family, or in our lives that deal with a mental illness, or problems that people just can’t explain. Seeing this movie and the story that goes with it, might help open up conversation on this topic, and let the people that are dealing with it know that’s it’s okay to talk about it!! In years past, everyone has been scared to admit they have a certain problem. By getting the dialogue going, it helps them know that they aren’t weird, or crazy…they are just dealing with something that might have a cure, or a way to control it.
The movie is really interesting. You think there is one thing going on, and then it switches to make you feel there’s another. It really makes you think and realize that there are people out there with mental problems, and not all of the time are they not worth listening to. I know there are some that ramble and don’t really know what’s going on…but like the character in this movie, if you finally take a chance and listen, there might be some grain to the story!!
There were some really exciting parts to the movie, amazing artwork, great acting. I would definitely recommend it to families (of older kids), church groups, or people wanting to know more about how to deal with disabilities, child trauma or family issues. Thanks to IconMediaGroup for letting us watch it, and post about it.
About The Movie:
Creatively gifted with a resilient spirit, college student Chloe Moray finds solace from a difficult childhood in her art. But when a terrifying dream begins to recur night after night, Chloe starts to believe that it might be a suppressed memory and that she may be connected to the strange disappearance of a teenage girl twelve years earlier. Her search to find the answers sends her on a journey that forces Chloe to confront her own past traumas, while at the same time, helps her unlock a mystery that may bring a killer to justice.
WILDFLOWER is a compelling story of triumph and healing for everyone who longs for redemption. If you’ve ever struggled in the aftermath of a difficult situation; if you’ve ever wondered if someone (anyone) will listen to you; if you’ve ever wished there was a safe place you could go, WILDFLOWER is a powerful reminder that hope can be found even in your darkest moments.
In addition to the movie, planned partnerships with agencies and ministries will enhance advocacy on behalf of those who are struggling with physical and mental traumas. There is no end to how WILDFLOWER can impact lives as it helps build compassionate awareness for these vitally important issues and gives a voice to those who may have yet to be heard.
