"A Long Way Off" Movie Review

*Disclosure: The following film was provided to me in exchange for my honest review.  I was not compensated in any other way.  All opinions are my own.

 
 
About "A Long Way Off":
Retelling the timeless parable of a father’s unconditional love, tempestuous young Jake tries to escape the duties of the family business by leaving his home and taking his dreams to the big city. Far
from the wise words of his father, Abraham, Jake is finally free to live the high life that he’s
always wanted, trading the traditional values of his upbringing to revel in every temptation that money can buy. Just when Jake thinks the world is his playground and every day offers another enticing opportunity, he must come face to face with the consequences of the life he’s chosen.
Jake must learn that sometimes it takes losing everything to realize/appreciate what he left behind,
and if his mistakes can ever outweigh the grace of a father’s forgiveness.
 
Take a look at the trailer:



My Review:
A Long Way Off was an enjoyable family-friendly movie.  I like that it shows that a parable told 2000 years ago, in the Bible, is just as relevant today.  Already knowing the story, we knew what the ending was going to be, but it was interesting to watch and see the little modern-day twists that were in it...even some pretty intense scenes!

A really nice movie that I would definitely recommend watching! :-)

Buy It!
"A Long Way Off" is available for $14.99 at Christianbook.com.
