Wildflower DVD Offers Hope, Faith and Renewal (review and giveaway)

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this DVD, free of charge,from Propeller LLC, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it


With Easter less than 2 weeks away (you can freak out and scream now), there will be lots of 'faith' based movies abounding, but I have a new one to share with you that truly offers the reason God gives us his grace, and allows us to sin, and come back to the church. It actually comes out on DVD after Easter (April 5th), but you need to add it to your MUST see list!

Synopsis: 

Creatively gifted with a resilient spirit, college student Chloe Moray (Ramos) 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. 

Starring:  Nathalia Ramos, Cody Longo, Alex Steele, Shari Rigby, Ben Ashbrook, Katie Gill, Kevin McCorkle

Bonus feature: The DVD includes a retrospective, talking about the making of the film, and how thr writers came to the themes in it.

Review:

this is an amazing movie! If you didn't know it was a faith based movie, you would have no idea really for the first 30 minutes. The writers have done an excellent job of treating the subject matter from a secular format, but adding in the faith touches that are 100% natural and that would occur in any conversation in real life. SO what you get is an amazing movie that really keeps you guessing as to what actually happened to Chloe at age 8, and how she was involved in Rachel's disappearance. How she and Josh find each other, is as the movie says, "injured souls always seem to find one another" 

And as we learn, Josh has his own memories and trauma to get past. You will find yourself guessing and trying to get ahead of the story, much like reading a good mystery, only to find a subtle red herring was in fact a real clue.The story offers an ending that many viewers will understand as making perfect sense, others will want more. But the writers chose to allow the viewers to fill in the next steps in Chloe's and Josh's lives on their own, to allow for a more involved movie. And it works beautifully. Due to the subject matter, the movie is PG-13, but I would suggest it's better for older teens, until you review it fist and determined if your 13-16 year olds should see it. It is an amazing movie that offers us the true meaning of hope and grace, and everyone should see it
