‘Redemption of the Commons’ ~
CFDb Movie Review
“What’s the purpose of my life?”
Victor seems to have it all together – good looks, his own branding company, and life in L.A. But appearances can be deceiving, because in reality, he’s broke, living out of his van, $93,000 in debt and still looking for the ever-elusive purpose of his life.
Pop, an elderly friend from the past, offers Victor his only choice – to come back home. Yet, home is a tattered trailer park in the Deep South, which is full of bad memories and broken relationships. Once home, Victor discovers that he must deal with his volatile past before he can move toward his promising future.
Through the story’s inspiring ending of reconciled relationships and realized dreams, we are reminded that no life is “common” – and that everyone has a God-given purpose.
God has a plan for all of us. Here were some highlights:
- Powerful scene and song in the beginning.
- Life is always different than what we expect.
- You can be happy and poor – it’s all about attitude. You can make the best of any situation.
- Some humor throughout.
- No one is common.
I enjoy movies that show God’s purpose for all of us. Even though we go through difficult times to find out what His purpose is…eventually, if we are looking for it, we can find that purpose.
