‘Jimmy’ – CFDb Movie Review & Recommendation
Jimmy – Ian Colletti delivers the performance of a lifetime in this heartfelt family drama based on the best-selling novel by Robert Whitlow. Colletti stars as Jimmy Mithcell, a young man whose world is a place where a boy can be a man, even if he’s “special”. Where angels lover, mostly unseen. Where danger can happen, and hearts can falter – but love is never wasted. Filled with Southern characters at once familiar and unexpected, Jimmy is an extraordinary tale about growing up in the midst of real struggle.Jimmy is a story you will never forget.
Another GREAT Christian film, based on the book, by Robert Whitlow. There are SO many things I loved about this film. This is one of our HIGH recommendations! Here are a few of the things that stood out to me:
- Angel = Watcher – Loved the whole concept of the watcher throughout the entire film and especially the influence the watcher made on Jimmy’s life.
- LOVED the fact that there are people who you know always tell the truth. That should be EVERY person that professes Christianity.
- Loved the quote above, spoken by the step-mom and what a FABULOUS example of what a step mom should be like. I wonder what seeing the world through God’s eyes would be like…I imagine quite similar to the way Jimmy saw it…he seemed to see the heart.
- My favorite part was the moment in the hospital. I want that same childlike faith. Very powerful moment!
