I love having the opportunity to share family-friendly, faith-based movies with you! This one is easy-access for you too – I just got the news that it’s available at Walmart and Family Christian Stores! It releases TOMORROW, September 1st; so get ready to head out and add this one to your collection.
Uncommon – Jesus combined diverse people and assorted stories to change the world! Now, He wants to use you!
When the students of Rosewood High School lose their theater, music and dance departments due to budgets cuts, they create their own. Struggling to find the right script, music & choreography the students get advice from an uncommon source; the Bible!
Each student becomes uniquely influenced as they discover that God takes them personally. Equipped with unique talents, they bond together to prepare the perfect production by exploring the diversity of parables taught in the Bible. Fighting overwhelming challenges, the teens fight against political correctness to defend their privilege to worship, meet and perform.
Will months of constant bullying by the establishment defeat the production and dismantle their faith? Armed with expert legal counsel and unexpected help from Christian music’s finest, these teens realize what it means to be…UNCOMMON!

This movie is along the same vein as God’s Not Dead. The main theme of the movie would be that sometimes we need to stand up for what we believe in, even if it means being unpopular as a result.
We are fans of Ben Davies, ever since we saw him in Courageous. So, we always enjoy films that Ben plays a part in.
Recently I shared about another film that featured Erik Estrada. I was pleased that Eric plays a much larger role in this film. It’s nice to see old Ponch from CHiPs making an appearance in faith-based movies.
This movie centers around high school aged kids and some of the issues that they face involving school, peer pressure, etc. It would be a great to share with a high school Sunday School class or youth group. There is definitely lots of content for conversation starters. There is also a Discussion Guide available at UncommonFilm.com.
