Run the Race
Run the Race deals with two brothers facing unbelievable odds with an unbreakable bond. It so enthralled actor Jake McEntire that he spent years persevering to get it onto theater screens. He wrote it, produced it, and even acted in it. Run the Race similarly attracted others, including brothers Tim and Robby Tebow. The Heisman Trophy winner and his brother read an early version of the script and decided to get actively involved as first-time feature film executive producers.

Sound of Freedom
This powerful movie is a growing rallying call to end human trafficking. It is not gratutious. It has great heart and hope. More and more movie theaters around the world are showing it. The acting is oustanding, especially that of Jim Caviezel. The cast and crew are people of great skill and character.

Dreamin' Wild
Dreamin’ Wild (Roadside Attractions) is a new movie that is especially needed today. It questions whether projects or people are more important. It is authentic and honest but engaging. It is a wonderfully inspirational movie based on a true story of love and redemption in an extended family. This PG-rated movie has no salacious or gratuitous elements. It is suitable for teens through older adults.

This is a beautiful Fathom Event Palm Sunday-April 6. It combines world-class musical performances with thought-provoking conversations across the Italian countryside. Blind Bocelli, his wife Veronica, and friends travel on horseback along Italy’s Via Francigena for sacred, awe-inspiring musical performances in a variety of styles in Italy’s magnificent locations.

His Only Son
I recommend the following movie especially for church groups and those who want to see a contemplative, profound movie before Easter. HIS ONLY SON comes to theaters on March 31, 2023, just in time for the Easter season. It is a cinematic exploration of the story of Abraham, as his faith is tested on his three-day journey to sacrifice his son. The film is an honest, quiet exploration of scripture, challenging viewers to examine their own commitment to hearing and obeying God’s voice.
