i can only imagine dvd

Let me refresh you about the movie:

I Can Only Imagine is based on the Christian song, of the same name, that has brought ultimate hope to so many! The song even made history in 2014 as the first song to go platinum and double-platinum in the digital domain. 

The movie tells the story of MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard and HIS faith, and how his life led up to him crafting this INCREDIBLE song, that has given so many people HOPE and JOY!

Although he found faith at a young age, life wasn’t easy for Bart. He leaned into an
active imagination and his love of music as escapes from a troubled home life. As he
grew older, Bart turned to football in hopes of somehow connecting with his abusive
father. But a career-ending injury—combined with the vision of a teacher who saw
unlimited potential—set Bart on a musical pathway.

Chasing a dream while running from broken relationships with father and Shannon,
his childhood sweetheart, Bart hits the road on an old, decrepit tour bus with his
new band MercyMe—named for his grandmother’s favorite expression. With the
guidance of a grizzled music-industry insider, the band begins a journey none of
them could ever have imagined.

 I CAN ONLY IMAGINE stars J. Michael Finley, Madeline Carroll, Trace Adkins,
Priscilla C. Shirer, with Cloris Leachman and Dennis Quaid. It is directed by the Erwin Brothers, who have also done October Baby, Moms’ Night Out, and Woodlawn.

Check out a clip:

Our Review of the Movie:

J. Michael Finley does an amazing job of showing both the hope, and faith, that kept Bart from falling into despar, after his mother left him with his abusive father, and then the pain of living with him. Bart did everything he could to win his father's appreciation, until the day when that was literally shattered and he had to find his own way to what made HIM happy. That struggle left him with anger and ultimately a desire to move away and find his dream of singing. Dennis Quaid does an amazing job of being the father the viewer hates, and ultimately showing how even those people can be SAVED by God's grace. The struggle Bart goes through accepting a changed man in his father is very realistic and honest, and most viewers will be moved by both actor's acting. 

This is an amazing movie to see together as a family. it helps younger kids to understand that people who may be acting out because of drama at home, and help them to understand everyone tries to live up to expectations. For teens, it's a good way to see how you CAN follow your dreams, but ultimately it's your faith that will see you through the hard times. It is a moving movie, that lives up to the song, and we hope ALL of you take the time to see the movie, and allow it to change your family!

Smart homeschoolers and youth group leaders, might even want to make a Homeschool Mini Unit/Bible Study out of the DVD and its features, and use it for character building/bible study for tweens and teens!
