The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry

Film Description:

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.

    This is a great movie for the whole family. Shows a clear gospel presentation and the need to keep it going!

    One of my favorites I’ve seen so far. This is clearly a family film, but it keeps my attention the whole time and I can’t really complain much. The film shows how much of an influence one man can be, and you see the fruit of his work too. This film is only for Christians, non-believers will think it’s too preachy. Sperry techniques are different and I like that, but it has a fundamentalism vibe hidden underneath one parts of the film. For one, if you do not tell someone about Jesus and they die, it is not your fault. But the film implies it maybe your fault with, “Why didn’t you tell me?” bit. But I like most of the film besides that issue. And with characters, Albert stole the show. The main character Dustin comes across as too stiff, he seems more like a Jehovah Witness to me and he kinda deserves to be picked on. But this is a worth while film that follows the Gospel pretty well.
