‘Beyond the Farthest Star’ ~
CFDb Movie Review
A twist of fate brings the national spotlight to a forgotten Texas town and a once famous preacher has an opportunity to regain his former glory or seize one last chance to restore his fractured family.
Narrated by his fifteen-year-old daughter, we watch as Adam Wells, a minister driven by the prospect of achieving greatness as the next nationally-syndicated TV Evangelist lays down his opportunity at “celebrity” and even his own life in order to become something even greater.
A loving husband and father to his wife and daughter.
This film had a lot of uniqueness in it. A mixture of dark and light. Here were some highlights:
- Loved the beginning – very unique
- Enjoyed the story of the 1 person saved
- How guilt can destroy a person and how that guilt can trickle down to the rest of the family as well
- Loved the ending too
Thinking of the father who used to be a known boy preacher reminds me of the The Great Awakening period that happened in the 1800’s all over the world. In some places the adults were put into prison for preaching the 2nd coming of Jesus, but then God used the children to preach instead and preach they did. Since they were underage, they were left alone. I look forward to another great awakening time for this world.
No matter how dark your existence seems to be, especially for the youth, this too shall pass. There will come better days. This is one of those movies that brings you out of darkness into light.
Cherami Leigh, who played Anne in this movie was fabulous. We hope to see her again in some more faith based films.
