Many thanks to Sony Pictures for providing this product/product information for review. Opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a screener of SHOW ME THE FATHER in exchange for this review and post.
Last week I shared the trailer to the movie SHOW ME THE FATHER. If you didn’t get to watch it, click the link, watch it and then come back here. This week I had two cool opportunities. First, I was part of a Zoom call with Alex and Stephen Kendrick! I love all of their movies so this was a fun opportunity for me! Later in the week I got to watch the documentary with my husband, in the comfort of our living room.
If you don’t know who the Kendrick Brothers are, they have an amazing story about how God has used them to make powerful, Christian films. Maybe you’ve heard of, or seen FACING THE GIANTS, FIREPROOF, COURAGEOUS, WAR ROOM, and OVERCOMER. Honestly, if you haven’t seen them, you should. They are all powerful, life changing films.
SHOW ME THE FATHER is a different sort of film, it’s a documentary. I’ll be honest, I’m not a person who usually seeks out documentaries to watch. I knew if it was a Kendrick Brothers production, it would be worth it, and I was right. This movie is all about fatherhood and how earthly fatherhood should mirror the love Father God has for His children.
Ladies, this isn’t just a movie for the guys, we all have a father story, because we all have a father. Good or bad, how we view our earthly father is usually how we view God. My father story isn’t perfect, whose is? My dad was a good, hard working guy, he loved our mom, my sister and I and was proud of us. He supported us in everything we did. Of course, he had his vices and they caused some problems for the family. Some troubles we didn’t even find out about until after he passed away almost 6 years ago. I know I had trouble seeing Father God as a perfect, loving father who always gives His children good things and always tells the truth because my earthly dad would talk big and make promises he couldn’t keep. This led to me having some serious trust issues.
This film weaves together the true life stories of a handful of men. This captivating movie takes audiences of all ages on an inspiring and emotional journey. Providing a fresh perspective on the roles of fathers in today’s society, SHOW ME THE FATHER invites you to think differently about how you view your earthly father, and how you personally relate to God. I think families, ages 13+, should see this film together. No matter what your father story, or your current relationship with God, this movie will make you think and lead to so deep discussions, if you let it. You can get your tickets today at showmethefathermovie.com and join me and my family at the theater beginning September 10th!
