Now that the cooler weather is setting in, my family is on the lookout for new family-friendly movies that we can enjoy together as a family – snuggled in the living room with blankets, warm drinks, and each other! We love watching movies together as a family – and we enjoy adding new movies to our family’s movie collection. Recently, I was given a copy of a new movie called King’s Faith that I’d like to tell you about . . .
After Brendan King’s life spiraled to rock bottom, the teen found hope in a new relationship with Christ while serving time in a juvenile penitentiary. Recently released from prison, Brendan finds solace in the foster home of a couple struggling with suppressed grief.
As the city-bred teen enrolls at a suburban high school, he finds support from a group of believers. Yet the bonds of his old way of life—and the gang that wants to know where he hid their stash on a long-ago night—are strong. In his darkest moment, Brendan found faith. Now he must decide if it’s worth the price to hold on to it.
KING’S FAITH is produced by DiBella and Faith Street Film Partners LLC, a Rochester, NY-based collective of filmmakers, churches, investors, and supporters.
“KING’S FAITH is a compelling story
which features solid acting and a good storyline.”
~The Dove Foundation
“KING’S FAITH is a very redemptive, uplifting movie
extolling the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
KING’S FAITH stars Emmy Award winning actress Lynn Whitfield (The Women of Brewster Place, Madea’s Family Reunion), Crawford Wilson (Judging Amy, Zoey 101), Kayla Compton (Entourage), and James McDaniel (Malcolm X, NYPD Blue).
KING’S FAITH features the themes of courage, forgiveness and overcoming your past, highlighted with the important message of youth in foster care. The film prompts audiences to consider many of the questions they struggle with today: How can I stand firm in my faith when life’s challenges put me to the test? Where do I turn when I feel paralyzed by loss and grief? Can I find true forgiveness from my wrong choices?

We really enjoyed this film. I have to admit that we put off watching it for awhile because of the PG-13 rating. As it turns out, there was some “mature” content such as drug references and brief, mild violence; but, I had no problem with my 7-year-old being in the room when we watched this movie.
I very much loved the main character in the film. He was believable. The couple who took him in struggled with their own issues and sadness – dealing with it in different ways. It was enjoyable to watch their story play out and cheer for their happy ending as well.
King’s Faith is 108 minutes. The DVD also includes special features including a 10-minute behind-the-scenes feature, Bible study clips, and a downloadable Bible study guide for use in small groups/youth group settings. I will definitely be encouraging my husband to share this movie with the youth at our church.
