“Letters to God” DVD Review & Giveaway
Tonight, I had the opportunity to watch a movie called “Letters to God” on DVD. It was a feel-good, family-friendly, Christian movie and I really enjoyed watching it. I left the movie thinking of all the blessings I have in my life that sometimes I don’t focus on when dealing with life’s trials. “Letters to God” was released on August 10th by Possiblity Pictures and Vivendi Entertainment. The DVD is available online and in stores, retailing for $24.95.
“Letters to God” is the heartfelt and inspiring story of what happens when one boy’s journey touches the lives of his family, friends, and community. You’ll love this intimate, moving, and often funny story as it follows the path of a young child with a terminal illness who through his battle becomes a warrior for hope and a champion to everyone around him. Surrounded by a loving family and community, the young boy takes comfort in prayers writtens as letters to God. These letters find their way to a conflicted postman who is at a crossroads in his life, searching for meaning. Featuring moving performances from Robyn Lively (“Saving Grace,” “30 Rock”), Jeffrey S.S. Johnson (“Criminal Minds,” “Burn Notice”), Tanner Maguire (“Lost,” “Brothers & Sisters”), Bailee Madison (An Invisible Sign of My Own, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark), Michael Bolten (Flipped), and Ralph Waite (“Days of Our Lives”). The film is a stirring “tribute to faith, hope, and love through the eyes of a child” (TBN). From one of the producers of Fireproof and Facing the Giants, and inspired by a true story, “Letters to God” received the highest Dove Approval Rating and an endorsement from the Parent Television Council. The DVD is full of bonus features, including On-Set Devotionals, Behind the Scenes, The Music Behind the Movie, Character Stories with Cast, Short Stories, Outtakes and Bloopers, and more.
Tyler Doherty is an extraordinary eight-year-old boy armed with strong faith and courage as he faces his daily battle against cancer. Surrounded by a loving family and community, Tyler’s prayers take the form of letters he sends to his ultimate pen pal, God, on a daily basis. These letters find their way into the hands of Tyler’s postman, Brady, who is at a crossroads in his life searching for meaning. Brady at first is confused over what to do, but his decision ultimately is a testament to power of Tyler’s shining spirit, bravery, and grace. Inspired by a true story, “Letters to God” delivers a message of hope, faith, and courage that others can apply to their own personal struggle regardless of what they may face in their everyday lives.
I thought this was a really good movie with a Christian tone to it. I felt really good after watching it and thought about the many blessings in my life. I am really glad I had the opportunity to review this uplifting movie!
