Movie (DVD) - Uncommon
Running Time - Approx. 100 minutes
This is a dove approved, "faith friendly" movie, recommended for ages 12 and up.
A young man wants to start a Bible Study group at his public school. He speaks out (and against) falsehood by one of his teachers. He is a quiet, good student who wants to encourage others in their faith. Eventually, he helps the drama club put together a play that is considered by authorities to be religious. A lawyer is called in to help fight the school board, who had shut down the play and Bible studies. Their fight is inspiring and well done.
Throughout the struggles, there is an incredible janitor, played by Erik Estrada, who does an amazing job as a Christian mentor. His strong religious faith and character (as well as of his wife) are well worth watching.
[Note: One thing that I personally did not like about the movie was the students' intention to write a play based on the Bible itself. However, we never see the finished play, we only hear the students discussing their options.]
Overall this is a good and strong message that will encourage teenagers to be "uncommon," or not like the crowd. It will encourage them to live the Christian life and to help teach it, despite opposition.
The film is available at Walmart and Christian Stores.
