About the King's Faith:
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, his support comes 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. Available on DVD from Provident Films beginning October 22, KING'S FAITH stars Emmy Award winner Lynn Whitfield, along with Crawford Wilson, Kayla Compton, and James McDaniel.

My thoughts:

King's Faith was a great movie!  The story was very good and there were times that I was surprised, tense, moved, and several times where I laughed/chuckled. There is some violence and drug content in King's Faith, but nothing overly graphic (in my opinion).

The only thing I didn't particularly care for about King's Faith was how towards the beginning of the movie, there were prolonged moments with little-to-no dialogue - which made my attention kind of wane. I understood the reason for them (to show how the main character was adjusting/getting used to his new life), but that wasn't a favorite part of the movie for me.

The acting was fantastic and I loved the characters of Mike and Vanessa. I could definitely feel for them and the grief they were going through - Vanessa especially.

Overall, King's Faith was a wonderful movie with a great message! I recommend this movie for teens and adults - it was great!

  1. King's Faith looks like a very good movie. The story line looks very well done and characters seem interesting. Thank you for the review. There is such a need for young people to see the difference God can make in their lives and that they will have struggles as a Christian but they can get through them. As a grandmother I will make sure my teen grandchildren see this movie. thank you.
