#homerunthemovie Coming This Friday to a Theater Near You!! Review and Giveaway!

home run Are you looking for a great family film to enjoy with your family?? Sometimes it’s hard to know beforehand what will be a great family flick to see. Well I have been given the opportunity to review an upcoming faith based movie that is a sure fire home run for the family!!! It’s opening in theaters this Friday April 19th 2013 and to find showtimes and theaters just click here.

Home Run is a movie staring Cory Brand who is a pro baseball star struggling with alcoholism and problems stemming from his home home run 2 life as a boy with his alcoholic father. After a series of alcohol related events Cory is suspended from his team and forced to coach his brothers little league team and attend a recovery program called Celebrate Recovery. While being reunited with his family and old friends  Cory begins the journey of taking control of his problem and realizing that it is not something he can conquer alone.

With help from the program, his family and friends, and God, Cory starts the process of putting his life back together realizing that everything he had before was not what he really wanted. It is a story of survival, recovery, moving on, bettering of oneself and finding and understanding the greatness that you can achieve with Gods glory. It shows that out of hard and difficult times and situations God is there with his loving arms open to help you be the person you were meant to be. There were a few parts of the movie that you may not want your young children to watch, drunken scenes and a mention of sexual abuse while in counseling. My oldest is just turning 13 and with the way the world has changed and what she will be tempted with in the upcoming years I was proud to watch it with her and let her see what alcohol can actually do to a person and how it takes much work and dedication and help from a loving God to pull yourself out of it.

The cast was spectacular and the movie was wonderfully made. I felt that the movie was more about alcoholism and working through problems from the past and present than God but God indeed was the one there in the end lending his helping hand and loving heart to change a man from a drunken unhappy person to a loving, family oriented young man. There were a few slow parts but I was drawn to the t.v.  the whole time and didn’t even get up to grab a drink. I felt every emotion that I can think of and then a little more. The movie left me feeling wonderful with great hopes for the future.
