It’s funny to do a review with a title that has to do with time because I’ve had very little of it recently. For that reason, I was unable to watch this DVD with the rest of my family. I received “This Is Our Time” about a week ago to review with a short window to get it done. So one night while I was out with “the boy,” the ladies of the house watched it for us. So my review is based on their review. After hearing what they had to say about it, I do hope to watch it for myself soon.
About “This Is Our Time”:
The movie tells the interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and Alé (Erin Bethea), who marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb), who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God.
“What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”
My wife said the film was good. She felt that it was a bit slow at times and the acting could have been better, but overall it had a good message. Anything that deals with Gods call on our lives is good to take the time to ponder. The circumstances within the film bring them all back to one place. The impact of one of the characters on all of the others was strong and a reminder of our call to do the same.
Overall the film was a very good. The ladies gave it a 3 out of 5.
