I am well known for being a hopeless romantic, so when I was asked to watch The Song and then write about it, I was fully on board! To give you a basic premise, the movie is about a man trying to make it big in the music business on his own without being known only as his father's son. He falls in love, writes a song about the girl and suddenly his career takes off and he's faced with all the difficulties of the life of being in the music business while being a man of faith.
That's all I will share about the story line. I don't want to give away the whole movie because I WANT you to go see it when it hits theaters THIS month!
Throughout the movie, the words Solomon wrote so long ago in the Bible are spoken over scenes. It's not thrown in your face though, it's gentle and carries naturally with the movie. In fact this is the first
With Alan Powell from Anthem Lights, Ali Faulkner from Twilight, and Caitlin Nicol-Thomas from Nashville, the movie has definite talent. Richard Ramsey wrote and directed the film and Kyle Idleman was the executive producer. It was wonderfully done!
The story caught me up immediately and I loved watching the story unfold, even through the sadder moments of the movie. I won't lie, it is fairly predictable and it still does have some "cheesy" parts but I still really enjoyed it and honestly, what movie on love doesn't have a little bit of that?
Iwished my viewing period didn't end so fast because I would have happily watched it a second time.
Christ's love is marked by an incredible passion and never ending extent of grace and forgiveness. I think this movie does a sweet job of making that known.
Check out the trailer and then make plans to go see the movie!
