‘The Meek’ – CFDb Movie Review
The Meek – Josh, recently released from prison and struggling with the death of his daughter at the hands of a rival gangster, attempts to start over in a quite small town. With the help of the Pastor of a run-down church and a troubled Waitress, his new found spirituality is tested when his violent past returns with a vengeance. From Emmy nominated producer and director Harold Jackson III.
In a world that has become overrun with ugliness, it is increasingly easy not to see the good – not to see God.
The Meek is a film made for it’s time. A story of redemption, it shows the reality for too many – how it is so easy to get lost in all the hate, violence, crime and sin in this world. One decision can send you into that spiral and even with God by your side, the consequences can be devastating.
We ask in these moments – where is God? Answer – He is beside us through it all.
Josh and his Pastor both questioned God’s presence throughout this film, but in those moments of ‘coincidence’ – that’s where we see God trying to work in our lives.
The film had a good story, an easy plot to follow and was well made.
