Movie Review and Giveaway- Abel’s Field


Leave a comment on this post if you want to be entered in a drawing for a FREE copy of this DVD.

If you know even just a little about me, you probably already have figured out that I loved this “feel good”, family movie!  It focuses on a teen’s struggle to keep his faith in the face of immense trials and temptations. It has it all; a mysterious stranger, cute kids, teen romance, sad moments, a happy ending for the family, and a lesson learned by all.

It is rated PG. There is no bad language, but there is a scene with adults drinking, as well as a couple of scenes at a bar, but no teens drink and Kevin Sorbo’s character doesn’t drink alcohol.

There is not a lot of violence shown, but there is a scene (or two) where Seth, the main character, is beaten up by school bullies and a scene where “Abel” has a confrontation with Seth and those might be a little intense for your “littles”, so use your discretion.

Here is a synopsis of the movie:

Left motherless by tragedy and abandoned by his father, high school senior Seth McArdle (Samuel Davis) faces enormous pressure as he strives to support his little sisters. At school, he endures the daily bullying of the football team. But fighting back only finds him singled out for punishment and assigned to an after-school work detail under the supervision of the reserved groundskeeper, Abel (SOUL SURFER’S Kevin Sorbo). Much to his surprise, Seth discovers that Abel may be the only one who truly understands his struggles. As dark times lure Seth toward desperate measures, the reluctant Abel may be the one person who can point him back toward the light.

    I would like to view this inspiring film with Wes and the family as they come to visit. It has so many good lessons taught throughout it and our Lord knows how some of our family needs these lessons =-)
