Story of unmistakable faith and family

Are you looking for an inspiring movie? I found one for you.
It is called Paper Dream by American Family Studios and Bridgestone Multimedia Group.

For a personal note before I explain the movie I want you to know that I enjoyed this movie more than anything I have seen in a long while.

Paper DreamThe movie is short; an unbelievably well-packed 44 minutes long. It tells the realistic and agonizing experience of infertility. The actors were new faces to me but it didn't feel like they were "new". The entire piece was very engaging.

What I enjoyed the most was the ending. I promise I won't spoil it for you. You will have to watch it to find out for yourself what happens. But know this ... God is amazing and awesome and as in real life - always present.

As far as family-friendly goes ... it has earned the Dove Foundation seal for its clean content. The only questionable items that may help you decide if your younger children are ready to watch it is there is a scene where it is vaguely suggested that a young girl has had an abortion. Without this understanding the next few scenes may be difficult to process. So decide for yourself if you want to open that discussion with your family or not. If you do ... I don't think you will be disappointed.

Fantastic! The best 44 minutes I've spent in a long while!

BTW, the DVD copy I have comes with two short films as bonus features. One is titled Aaron and is a five minute video about the lasting pain of abortion. (An extremely difficult one for me to get through with dry eyes!) The second is a forty minute documentary about an American family who lost a son and how they battle through the grief and devastation still praising a Holy and Blessed God.

The quality of the films and the DVD are exceptional.

Check them out!
