This new DVD features some amazing actors that you know and love, in a story that is perfect for Family Movie night! 


After losing his wife Alice (Marilu Henner) in a mysterious bike accident, Joe Bigler (Corbin Bernsen) is left alone without faith to help him grieve. That and the circumstances of Alice’s accident leave more questions than answers, and Joe begins a fast descent into the dark abyss of uncertainty. But his salvation arrives when a dog wanders into his garden and won’t leave despite Joe’s many attempts to rid him. Without so much as a single bark, "Dog,“ as Joe has named him, shares his voice; a deep love and comfort that Joe has never experienced before. With Dog’s love comes the discovery of God’s love, and a faith that not only helps Joe toward the road to recovery, but also the unsolved mystery surrounding his wife’s accident, and the ability to finally grieve her passing.

Have a box of tissues handy, because you just might need them! This is a great movie to atch with pre-teens and teens, as they may be beginning to deal with the loss of elderly family members, and understanding of God's grace is so VERY important at this age. Corbin does an excellent job in bring the cranky grieveing Joe to life, so much that you might just forget all his other roles as an actor! While watching the movie, you really feel his pain and grief , and understand why he has pushed God away from his life and how his wife brought it into his life.  I really liked how they brought back some olod school filming techniques, you knew Joe's wife was dead, by how they lit Marilu- your unconscious brain recognizes it before you do! Animals can really sell a movie, but in this one, Dog is core to bringing Joe back to life, and to finding out what truly happened to his wife. But it is HOW dog changes his life and makes him see things differently that is how we view God's grace. It's a deep, but moving movie, and one we highly recommend!
