***UPDATE - CONGRATULATIONS TO JAMIE MOFFAT, WINNER OF OUR GRACE CARD DVD GIVEAWAY!!! ***
The Grace Card, a new DVD set for release today, August 16, tells the story of police officer Mac McDonald, and how he copes with the tragic loss of his young son in an accident. Still overflowing with pain and resentment nearly 20 years later, he turns his anger towards God, his family, and everyone else he comes acoss.
Faced with a new partner that he resents being paired with, a crumbling marriage, and his angry teenage son, McDonald ultimately has to hit rock bottom before he learns just what the power and grace of God can do in a persons life when every other resource has been exhausted.
Without giving away too much and spoiling it for you, let me just say, WOW. This film engaged me from the opening scenes. The characters were effective in portraying each of their unique perspectives. Even Mac, in all of his anger and bitterness, showed us a vulnerable side that evoked sympathy for all he had been through.
There were several great twists in the plot that added to the suspense - I want to tell you, but you'll just have to see it for yourself!
One more tip - keep the kleenex nearby, you'll be needing it!
The Grace Card is rated PG-13, and for families with kids in that age range will find this movie a great choice. The word that keeps coming to my mind is powerful.
