‘The Grace Card’ ~
CFDb Movie Review & Recommendation
In racially charged Memphis Tennessee, a searing personal tragedy has left police officer Mac McDonald a bitter, angry soul, blaming a long downward spiral on minorities, “the system” and God Himself.
Who better to bring this simmering kettle to a boil than an African-American pastor-cop named Sam, who’s just been promoted in front of Mac, and assigned as his new partner?
When a routine burglary call goes horribly wrong, Mac McDonald hits bottom, and stares into the Abyss of losing it all career, family, and any reason to go on. His only lifeline is Grace, offered by the God he’s abandoned, through the gift of a man he can barely stand.
The question is, will he take it?
We just re watched this film and LOVED it even more the 2nd time around. Here were some highlights:
- God created us to be connected and when one hurts, we all hurt.
- Grace is power.
- Liked the analogy of the locker room and game to Christianity.
- God’s brings people into the Christian’s life for a reason. We just have to figure out why.
What a powerful film about prejudice and forgiveness. There are some real heartbreaking moments, as well as some humor to break up the seriousness of the topic. We highly recommend this one.
