About the film:
When Simone Burner (Brandy Allison) is accused of murdering the man who assaulted her, she seeks out the help of attorney Jack Evans (Erik Estrada “CHiPS”) to prove her innocence. As her trial progresses, the prosecution brings to light the truth about Simone’s past. A past that she had long hoped to escape.
From the producer of Finding Faith, “Virtuous” is a film created to inspire and ignite women to live out the principles of Proverbs 31, instilling solid convictions of faith, wisdom, and integrity.
Boasting a female-led cast that includes Angelita Nelson (Courageous), Erin Bethea (Fireproof), Vanessa Ore (My Name is Paul) and American hero, Jessica Lynch, this film weaves together stories of powerful women from the battlefields of Afghanistan, to an American news studio, to a home for troubled girls, and the pulpit of a church, all while revealing the truth of God’s transformative love and grace.

Take a peek at the the trailer:
I really enjoy movies that are inspiring in some way. I don't 'like' to cry, but I know the movie is really quite good if it moves me to tears....and "Virtuous" did that!
As I watched this film not only did it take me on a roller coaster of emotions, but it kept me guessing throughout as well! So many aspects of the characters lives are unknown, but at the end it all comes together and makes perfect sense! "Virtuous" really draws you in and makes you want to keep watching to find the answers. Another great quality of this film!
While I sincerely enjoyed much of the movie, I should mention that some of that acting wasn't the best. Also, there were aspects of the trial that didn't seem like they'd happen in a true court. I think the overall message, and other enjoyable qualities, of the movie far outweighs the few seemingly unfavorable aspects though.
I can't finish this review without saying a little something about Erik Estrada. I have faint memories of seeing episodes of "CHiPs". (Most likely reruns, since I wasn't born until its second to last season on TV.) Because of those memories, seeing Erik Estrada pull up to his house on a motorcycle, in one scene, just made me smile! :-)
"Virtuous" retails for around $20.00. (Price varies depending on retailer.) To order the DVD online visit the Virtuous website.
