What happens when your life takes a hard flip? Teenager Caleb Jones goes skateboarding. With no father in his life to guide him and his mother, Beth, working two jobs to make ends meet, Caleb believes nothing matters in life but becoming a sponsored skater to get him away from all his troubles. When his mother falls ill, Caleb is forced to deal with her illness and his lack of responsibility.
Now on his own, he sets out to find the father he never knew when he stumbles upon some old love letters. Out of hurt and anger, Caleb reluctantly contacts his father Jack, who happened to live the next town over from him his entire life. Calebs only real friend, a crazy, homeless, street preacher named Ralph, speaks nuggets of Truth through Gods Word, guiding Caleb along his journey. Through the tragedy of his mothers illness and the sudden appearance of the father he never knew, Caleb becomes the man his mother always prayed hed be. Caleb is a story of what can happen when we let go of our anger and pain and willingness to forgive those whove hurt us most, just as God forgives us.
CFDb Film Review
If you saw “Cutback“, then “Hardflip” will be a favorite for you as well. The movies are quite similar, and yet different as well! One thing I really liked about Hardflip was that there were 2 unique ways of presenting the Gospel that I’ve never seen before in any other movie. I can’t describe it too well as it would be a spoiler for the movie. I will say that with the one scene I talked about it afterwards how it was so unique and wonderful! I really enjoyed that!.
