In my quest to find (and share) family-friendly films with you, I came across a new one that will be hitting store shelves TOMORROW (April 5th, 2016), and I wanted to tell you a bit about Wildflower . . .
Even in your darkest times, you are never alone.
Creatively gifted, college student Chloe Moray (Nathalia Ramos, House of Anubis) finds solace from a difficult childhood in her extraordinary art. But when an alarming dream begins to recur nightly, Chloe starts to believe that it might be a suppressed memory and that she may have witnessed a terrible crime as a little girl. Her search for peach takes her on a journey that forces Chloe to confront her past traumas and leads her to cross paths with Josh (Cody Longo, Not Today), a young man dealing with his own painful loss. Together they find in each other someone they can trust as they seek to unlock a cold-case mystery from years before. But with the authorities blocking the way, Chloe’s new-found hope is challenged in this riveting story of faith, triumph, and healing.
Heidi Says . . .
I really enjoyed this movie. It reminded me of reading a good, intriguing book – you just want to keep reading until you get to the end and find out what happened.
I don’t want to give away any real spoilers, but suffice it to say that Chloe DID, indeed, witness a violent crime as a child. She suppressed those memories until something brought them forward in her mind. But, when she tries to share them, everyone (including her own mother) just shrugs it off, thinking that Chloe is crazy.
Finally, her new friend Josh takes her seriously and helps get to the bottom of things. And that’s where I’m going to end – you can watch the movie for yourself to find out the rest!
This movie is rated PG-13 for thematic material and violent images. If you watch any crime dramas on TV, this movie is much less intense than those. Please be aware of the rating, though, and preview it first before sharing with your family. My almost-10-year-old son was in the room when we watched the movie and there was nothing disturbing or scary to him.
For the latest news on Wildflower, be sure to follow the movie on Facebook.
