Today I have a movie perfect for Family Movie Night with Older teens and tweens, from Watchman Pictures, Princess Cut :

This Dove Approved Christian Romantic Drama is a bit different from any other Christian film you've seen, as it is shows an HONEST look at teens and their dating lives.

Synopsis:
A lifelong Carolina farm girl, now in her early 20's, Grace has dreamed all her life of the day when "Mr. Right" slips a Princess Cut diamond on her finger and swears to love her forever. Tonight may be that night as Stewart has something special planned after 15 months together! But when things don't go as planned, and romance crashes down around her, it launches her on a quest, aided by her father, to understand what it means to truly love another person. Will Grace finally discover love or ruin her chances for happiness forever?

Check out the trailer for the movie, 
and then I'll share our thoughts about it!



Review:

Miss Grace and I watched this movie together. I would definitely say it would better suited to the 13-22 age range though. While she got a lot out of it, it dragged soem for her 11 year old brain. BUT one thing that we both agreed on was the characters were very believable (and not just because we live out in a rural area), and that Grace is still naive, and probably missed some clues along the way in her relationships, that probably were pointed out to her but she ignored, as she had a 'goal' in mind.

This is partially where Miss Grace was rolling her eyes (11 year old), as we have always told her that God will place the person who is right for her when she isn't expecting it, and that searching usually leads to more heartbreak, than finding the person, aka thwarting God's wishes. So while it takes the characters of Grace a while to figure that out, she does eventually get there, but only after the aforementioned heartbreak. The way her father handles getting her attention and leading her to 'let God lead" was wonderful, and I can see families adopting the concept, as part of their ne family tradition.

The movie definitely sparked a lot of debate with Miss Grace and I and included a stopping of the movie, as we needed to have a 'divorce' discussion. For while she understood the whys of why her father and I got divorced, the movie made her question if God had put the right person for us together, and that needed some talking about.  Which is something that I think this movie does really well- it gets families TALKING- "has this happened to you?", "do your friends act llike that?", "what are your life goals?", etc. In that regard, I think it would be great for a Youth Group to watch, but I think it would be better for girls to watch together, and also for the boys. This would allow the girls to discuss it more openly, and allow the leader to talk to the boys about what makes a gentleman one, and what doesn't!

Overall we both were impressed with the overall production and acting- the Christian aspects were brought into the movie very organically, so you didn't feel like they were forced, but rather central to the plot, and needed for an accurate protrayal. It's no surprise it has won so many awards, including the Dove Foundation one! If you have older kids, you need this for family night!
