‘1 Message’ ~ CFDb Movie Review
Becca had it all: beauty, a successful fiancé, and the job of her dreams. Everything was going according to her plan until the day she was diagnosed with breast cancer. In the blink of an eye, her entire life came crashing down around her.
The fiancé ran off with some new fling. The dream job wouldn’t wait for her to get better. The toll cancer took on her body made her feel like less than a woman. Broken and alone, she refused to leave the house. She wanted cancer to finish what it started. But in her darkest hour, she found a mysterious ray of hope in the most unlikely of places.
From independent studio Kelly’s Filmworks, a new film based on the novel by Mary T. Lennox.
This was a TOTAL unexpected surprise for me. It’s difficult for me to watch a film over 1 1/2 hours, and this one was a treat. I had no idea what the film was even about. Hard to believe, but when I review a film, I would prefer to be totally surprised as to what the movie is about.
Fantastic message on forgiveness in so many ways. Watching this woman’s healing process was fabulous, although I can’t say much more otherwise I might give something away.
There were quite a few surprises, including a couple of cameo appearances which really added to the film. Pay attention to what the 1 message really is!
There are some really funny moments as well. I LOVED Ashley Kate Adams in this film. Fantastic job. The character is so sarcastic and she did such a great job at it that I found myself laughing at moments I’m sure weren’t meant to be funny. Sad situation but funny still in the way she presented it.
The overall message in this film is powerful. It brings out a lot of things and realistic situations that could arise from going through such a rough time.
During the film, I was led to ask the question about myself. I remember quite a number of years ago, I picked up lice from some children and I had a bad case of it. My hair is so thick and the case was so bad, I had to cut my hair pretty short. I remember crying like CRAZY over losing a majority of my hair. It was then that I realized I had quite an attachment to my hair. Why do women, including me, take pride in certain part of our bodies as if that was who we were? God looks on our hearts and I wonder how often we do the same!
