QUICK TAKE:
Christian Drama: The lives of a dozen Chicagoans and a few others intersect as each undergoes a crisis of spiritual faith.
PLOT:
When Pastor Matthew (TED McGINLEY) encounters an old man named Malachi (DELROY LINDO) carrying a cross and confronting a couple of gun-toting gang bangers nick-named Kriminal and Pretty Boy (SENYO AMOAKU and rapper SCHWAYZE, respectively), he is inspired by the man's courage and faith and challenges members of his congregation to put their faith into action. Among them are senior couple J.D. and his wife, Teri (LEE MAJORS and CYBILL SHEPHERD, respectively), who are still grieving over the loss of their grown daughter years earlier to a drunk driver; husband-and wife EMT Bobby (LIAM MATTHEWS) and Elena (VALERIE DOMINGUEZ); and cancer-stricken Joe (BRIAN BOSWORTH).

J.D., Teri, and Joe seek to help a homeless widow, Samantha (MIRA SORVINO), and her daughter, Lily (MACKENIZE MOSS), get off the streets. Joe tries to help Pretty Boy go straight. Pastor Matthew and his infertile wife, Grace (TRACY MELCHIOR), care for an unwed pregnant homeless teen named Maggie (MADISON PETTIS). And Elena opens her home to her younger brother, Carlos (JOSEPH JULIAN SORIA), a war veteran suffering from PTSD who falls for a young suicidal woman named Lacey (ALEXA PENAVEGA).

In their orbit is Dr. Farell (SEAN ASTIN), an ER physician who doesn't understand why more of his patients thank God and not him for saving their lives. His wife, Andrea (ANDREA LOGAN WHITE), represents the wife of a man who recently died while Bobby administered care and shared Holy Scripture with him. All of these characters have crises of faith on some level. And many of their storylines come together late during a frightening multi-car accident on a Chicago bridge in which some will be saved physically and others will be saved spiritually.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Teenagers and those in middle school who have been brought up in Christian households could have some interest.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For thematic elements, an accident scene, and some violence.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
