Looking for a quality family movie for movie night?

I have a great one for you, that poses the question "What do we really know about religious liberties in public schools? "

Eric Estrada (Chips) and Ben Davies (Couragerous) star in Uncommon, a movie that works to show that the bible and praying in schools should not be a thing of the past.

Ben Davies is Aaron Chase, a student fleeing the violence of one school, only to find religious intolerance at another.  In an effort to have a positive impact at his school he tries to organize a bible study, but finds himself in direct conflict with his teacher, Mr. Stephens, who tears down his announcement from the school bulletin board.

Then, when the theater department disappears due to budgets cuts, Aaron and few other students, equipped with unique talents, bond together to prepare the perfect production with a modern take on the Bible’s parables. This only fuels his Teacher’s animosity who enlists help from the Principal.  The only help Aaron can get is from the custodian, Mr. Garcia, played by Eric Estrada.  Fighting overwhelming challenges, the teens defend their privilege to worship, meet and perform.  As they work together to make their play, lives change as each student becomes uniquely influenced discovering that God takes them personally. Armed with expert legal counsel and unexpected help from Christian music’s finest, these teens realize what it means to be…UNCOMMON!

Check out the trailer:


This is the PERFECT film for family night as it teaches teens, the most vulnerable to loosing their faith, to stay true to what they know and believe, no matter what obstacles are placed in their way. As our teens are getting ready to enter High School or College, they are SO vulnerable to peer pressure. This movie helps to show them that their talents and uniqueness that got them special merit, scholarships, etc, is truly a gift from God, and to be cherished and used in his name. 

Miss Grace was astonished that a teacher would not offer to help students in putting on a Christian play, but she goes to a Christian school, where praise is encouraged and cheered. the movie helped her to understand how different schools can be, and how lucky she is. The movie in fact would be great for Youth Groups to watch together and discuss, and share how they could offer a similar mission in their schools.
