This is one of the most powerful movies I’ve seen in years! It is both deeply touching, and inspiring.
It’s the story of two men and their families. One man’s tragedy drives him to fill his heart with rage and hatred, causing his family to fall apart. The other man’s calling asks that he offer grace and forgiveness to someone who hates him—something he struggles to do.
Although there are several intense scenes (it is PG13), I didn’t feel it was too much for my 7 year old. In fact, it has given my husband and I a great opportunity to talk about the importance of offering grace to those around us—even those who hurt us. Not because they deserve it.
But because God offers it to us and it is the right thing to do.
The theme of grace and forgiveness is so skillfully and compellingly woven throughout this film, you can’t help but be inspired. What if we all offered the kind of grace shown in The Grace Card? --Even to those who hate us? Or to those who look or act differently than us? It could literally change lives.
We thought it was a great film!
