‘The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry’ ~
CFDb Movie Review
What he teaches them, will last forever.
Best buddies Dustin (Jansen Panettiere), Albert (Frankie Ryan Manriquez), and Mark (Allen Isaacson) are twelve year old boys looking forward to a summer of fun in 1970. When Dustin mows the lawn of seventy-five year old Jonathan Sperry (Gavin MacLeod), a man he has seen at church, a unique friendship develops.
What happens the rest of this summer is something Dustin and his friends will never forget.
What a wonderful example of genuine Christianity shown in Mr. Sperry. Some highlights about the film:
- Loved the methods used by Mr. Sperry to reach the boys and the community around him.
- Some great moments of humor.
- A couple of unexpected twists.
This is a thought provoking film that every youth should watch, as well as parents and teachers.
