Several weeks ago, I was offered the opportunity to review CHAMPION, a new movie from Brannon Pictures, scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 19th. When I read the synopsis, I thought that this would be a movie that my husband Brian (an avid dirt-track racing fan would enjoy).
CHAMPION The Movie
In the supercharged world of dirt track racing, a single mistake causes the lives of two men to change forever. One must fight for his family, the other must fight to forgive.
Dirt track racer Sean Weathers was at the top of his game…an unstoppable career, scores of fans, and an adoring daughter. When a rivalry with another racer turns personal, the ego that propelled him to success causes a tragedy, sending his life into a tailspin.
Jack Reed was attempting to make up for past mistakes. He had prospered as a businessman but failed as a family man. In a sudden turn of events, his chances for reconciliation are ripped from his grasp.
Sean and Jack’s lives collide and an unexpected bond forms between them. Working through a painful journey of healing together, they each learn about second chances and the true freedom only forgiveness can offer.
Heidi Says …
This movie is about so much more than racing. It’s about Father-Son relationships, Father-Daughter relationships, the relationships between co-workers and employer to employee, and much more. But, the main theme running through the movie is FORGIVENESS. Why should we forgive? And who is affected by our decision to forgive? What is the outcome of making the choice to forgive?
I loved the cast of characters in this movie! They were all so believable and it was very easy to be drawn into the storyline. I found myself chuckling at times, but at other times I couldn’t control the tears.
This movie is a great, family-friendly film that your whole family is sure to enjoy! I would highly recommend marking your calendar for May 19th and making plans to go see it together. (Be sure to take some tissues!)
You can learn more about this movie, the cast, and where you can plan to see it on the movie’s website. While there, also be sure to check out and download the Ministry Kit and sign up to receive the 40 Days of Forgiveness e-mails.
Is there someone is your life that needs your forgiveness today? Let CHAMPION be an encouragement to you.
