‘Let God’ ~ CFDb Movie Review
In the Winter of 1848, a caravan of pioneers headed West. Only one survived. This is her story.
As rumors of gold in California spread across the United States in 1848, Levi decides it is time to head west with Amelia, his young housewife, to stake their claim and build a better life. Against her better judgment, Amelia honors her husband’s demands, leaving her home and family. Secretly, they join the last wagon caravan of the season dangerously late, leaving behind a string of bad debts. On the trail, they encounter unimaginable danger that will ultimately change the course of their lives.
After a savage attack takes her husband, Amelia is left alone and without resources. For the first time, Amelia must take life into her own hands, battling winter, hunger, and the unknown. As she grows weaker by the day, she finds strength in a mysterious and unexpected guide. Survival becomes a race against time and Amelia must find something greater than herself to help survive the frigid winter along the Oregon Trail.
This film has great cinematography and acting. This transports you back in time when the gold rush fever was happening. As you watch this film, it’s hard not to talk about some of the bad decisions that were made that led to the main character’s situation. It does make you sympathize with her and wonder what would you do if you were in that situation.
If this had been a true story, it could have made it to one of the “I Shouldn’t Be Alive” episodes.
Favorite part was the ending. It really brings out how God is with us throughout all of our toughest times.
