‘Confessions of a Prodigal Son’ ~
CFDb Movie Review & Recommendation
Confessions of a Prodigal Son – A coming-of-age, modern, retelling of the Prodigal Son story. We follow newly independent Sean as he takes part of his college fund into his own hands and uses it to begin exploring life apart for the rules and expectations he has grown up with – put in place from his (pastor) father. But after meeting a strong and beautiful girl named Ali, Sean soon finds himself having to question what he thought he knew, all while trying to balance a lifestyle of partying and loose living instigated by his troubled best friend Cameron.
We follow Sean on his journey to discovery, through pain, longing and love and he begins to learn that every choice he makes, steers him ever closer to what kind of story his life is going to tell.
We are the sum of all our choices. That is a quote you can think about for awhile and that is what this film is all about. I normally give highlights for a film, but this film was all around good, kept you interested from beginning to end, and gave you a lot to think about.
There was a very profound short sermon given towards the end by Kevin Sorbo, who plays the father, followed by a powerful ending that left me thinking about how much God truly loves all of His children…everyone in the world, not just professed Christians. If I could package the last few minutes of the film and have it replayed in the heavens for all to see, in every language of course, I would do it.
CFDb should be releasing an interview with Nathan Clarkson, the lead actor, who happens to be the writer, & producer of this film soon as well.
This film will be released on March 24, 2015. You can pre-buy the DVD below.
