(2018) (Lindsay Pulsipher, Andrew W. Walker) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: Two years after her husband's combat death in Afghanistan, a young woman who's lost her religious faith finds her life coming apart, all while a racecar driver arrives in town hoping to fix his race day issues.
- Two years ago, Amber Hill (LINDSAY PULSIPHER) was happily married to Darren (LIAM MATTHEWS) with whom she had a daughter, Bree (MAKENZIE MOSS), and enjoyed singing in the church choir along with her many friends, including Bridgette (JORDIN SPARKS) and Karena (ROBIN GIVENS). But then she was informed that her husband was killed in combat in Afghanistan and now Amber is struggling to make ends meet.
She has to work seven days a week in the local diner, meaning she doesn't have time to go to church, not that she would what with having lost her faith, much to the chagrin and concern of her friends. Facing foreclosure on her house, she must also contend with her mother-in-law, Patti Hill (KIM DELANEY), not approving of how she's raising 8-year-old Bree.
But she's not the only one facing issues as Mike Nelson (ARTHUR CARTWRIGHT), who was in Darren's military squadron, can't yet bring himself to tell Amber what really happened regarding her husband's death. Far less serious is professional race car driver Cody Jackson (ANDREW W. WALKER) who keeps crashing in his races and has been sent to Amber's small town of Clarksville, Kentucky where he's to spend time with local mechanic and race guru Joe Carter (GARY GRUBBS) to get his mojo back.
As he struggles with that but bonds with Bree and the other kids via go-kart racing, Amber tries to figure out how to save her house, her increasingly strained relationship with her daughter, and whether she'll ever regain her faith again.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Unless they're drawn in by the religious aspect of the film, it's not that likely.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For thematic elements and some combat action.
