‘Loving the Bad Man’ ~ CFDb Move Review &
When a Conservative Christian Girl gives birth to a son who was conceived in rape, she struggles to forgive the man who violated her by visiting him in prison and forging an unlikely bond.
An idealistic and nurturing young conservative Christian girl named Julie gets a flat tire on her way to do volunteer work. At a sleazy bar nearby, she seeks the aid of Mike, a drunk and angry mechanic. He changes Julie’s tire but then forces himself on her. Julie manages to drive home but passes out before making it inside. Her parents find her in the bushes. At the hospital, the family is happy to learn that Mike is in police custody. The mood changes quickly when the doctor announces that Julie is pregnant.
If you let it, this can be a life changing movie! This is the ultimate true forgiveness story! I cannot begin to say I would be able to understand what a woman goes through after being raped, but I imagine it’s close to what this girl portrays and they make note that there is some time that passes before her true healing begins, which is very realistic.
This movie brought me to tears many times, in between the moments of laughter as there are some real funny moments, especially with her brother! Great character!
Also loved the truth that God can take a terrible situation and turn it around for Good. Romans 8:28 – and we know that all things work together for good, to those that love God, to those who are the called according to his purpose.
Christine Kelly as JULIE
I really loved the character Christine played. She really followed her faith and beliefs in the face of a lot of persecution. This is a true redemption story and we HIGHLY recommend this film!
