About the Movie:
Matthew Stevenson is a troubled kid from a broken home. When he vandalizes the local church to get back at his parents, Matthew has to repair the damage to the church to avoid criminal charges. While working at the church, he meets Ernest (John Ratzenberger), an accomplished wood carver who created the intricate woodwork decoration that Matthew destroyed. Ernest has become something of a hermit, but reluctantly comes out of reclusion to help repair the church. Now Ernest and Matthew must work together to preserve the church's beautiful antiquity, and along the way, they also manage to restore their faith in God and in life.
The girls and I sat down to watch this together. I love to watch Christian films because I know that there won't be anything questionable in it, and there is always a great lesson. Well, Orangie (7 yr) didn't make it to far into the movie before she was off in her own little world, and then off to read a book instead. But Hero (11 yr) and I snuggled up on the couch in our blankets and quite enjoyed the movie! We thought we had the movie all figured out, but it twisted again and again. Loved the actors in this, especially the mom and Ernest. Will watch this again for sure!
