The family and I recently had the opportunity to review a new DVD called “King’s Faith.” Brendan King is a troubled teen that has been in and out of foster homes, gangs and trouble with the law. The movie begins with him being placed in a new home, new school and doing his best to leave his troubled past behind him. Just when it appears that he is getting it all put back together, his past comes back in the form of former gang members visiting him. They believe he has something or has knowledge of something that they want. Brendan is trapped between leaving that life behind and the pressures of his former gang members.
KING’S FAITH stars Emmy Award winning actress Lynn Whitfield (The Women of Brewster Place, Madea’s Family Reunion), Crawford Wilson (Judging Amy, Zoey 101), Kayla Compton (Entourage), and James McDaniel (Malcolm X, NYPD Blue).
KING’S FAITH features the themes of courage, forgiveness and overcoming your past highlighted with the important message of youth in foster care. The film prompts audiences to consider many of the questions they struggle with today: How can I stand firm in my faith when life’s challenges put me to the test? Where do I turn when I feel paralyzed by loss and grief? Can I find true forgiveness from my wrong choices?
We enjoyed the film. Although it is rated PG-13, we watched it with all of our kids (ages 8-13).
