Movie Monday: Find a Way

Finding faith can be difficult for many people on any given day.  Imagine an ordinary Sunday morning.  It’s time to get ready for church and you go to wake your talented, loving, bright, beautiful son.  Only he won’t wake up, ever again.  What happens to faith then? 

This is how a tragedy began for a Burlington, North Carolina family.  Their son Harry Cohen was a high school senior, a genuinely inspirational young man, star football player, friend to all and strong Christian.  One morning he didn’t wake up.

The film's focus starts with star football player Billy "Smiley" Cain, Jr. a well liked high school senior who is strong is his faith, compassionate and stands up for his fellow students. When he is struck with a life-threatening illness, As he dies, his influence is felt on 3 families-the focus of the film.

The untimely death of an outstanding young person naturally brings up questions about faith and God’s presence.  How can God allow such a thing to happen?  The event obviously has an immense effect on family, friends and the community at large.

Special Feature:

During the credit, there is a montage of photos from Cohen's football career, as well as video of his final game.



One of the questions always asked by children is "Why does God allow bad things happen to good people?". This movie deals with that question in a heart breaking, but very honest and real way.

This new movie shares how God's plans are not always our plans. How God puts us in place to influence others, even if we don't realize it, and that prayers may not be answered in the way that we think they will be.The movie deals with loss of faith, bullying, parental expectations, personal sacrifice and keeping ones convictions about your faith. Which means it is an excellent movie to watch together as a family, and to talk about after. The acting is top notch, and this is one of the better Christian movies of the year, and not to be missed by parents with pre-teens and teens!

With football season upon, the movie would also be great for sharing with your church youth group and bible study groups!
