Back in July, we talked about a new Christian film that was released, Home Run. Today, I finally had the opportunity to watch this film! After watching it through, I can definitely recommend it as a great film to watch. The synopsis reads:
"Baseball all-star Cory Brand knows what it takes to win in the big leagues. But off the field, with memories of his past haunting him, his life is spiraling out of control.
Hoping to save her client's career and reputation after a DUI and a team suspension, Cory's agent sends him back to the small town where he grew up. Forced to coach the local youth baseball team and spend eight weeks in the only recovery program in town, Cory can't wait to return to his old life as quickly as possible.
As his young players help him experience the joy of the game, Cory discovers his need to find freedom from his past and hope for his future … and win back the love he left behind. With this unexpected second chance, Cory finds himself on a powerful journey of transformation and redemption.
Based on thousands of true stories, HOME RUN is a powerful reminder that with God, it's never too late … freedom is possible."
This is a very exciting film, with lots of great scenes and memorable moments. There are a few intense scenes, however, that may make this film a little too much for younger viewers, but if you have a family of older children or teenagers, this would definitely be a wonderful film for the whole family.
