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.
PLOT:
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.

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!!!
