Sudden Turns


“Sudden Turns” tells the story of two Jewish siblings, Herschell and Cynthia. Cynthia is a strong follower of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah, while her ever-supportive brother begins questioning her newfound discoveries due to his stubborn ways. Then after a terrible accident separates them forever on earth, how will Herschell handle his beliefs and faith as they are put to the ultimate test? This story set in the early 1960s will bring you a realistic, thought-provoking message, and is a visual treat!

Dove Review

This is a movie with an inspirational message of hope! Set in the 60s, the rotary phones, wild shirts, and music will take some viewers back to a simpler time. The black and white picture gives the viewer a feeling of a past period of time. Herschell and Cynthia are a close knit brother and sister, having bounced around at an early age and winding up in a foster home before they finally got a place of their own. Herschell works as a mechanic and Cynthia teaches youth at a synagogue about the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus). Herschell, an orthodox Jew, has a difficult time in following his sister’s belief and dedication.

Cynthia encourages her brother to quit smoking and to draw close to God. Her aunt encourages her to not give up on Herschell. Then a tragic accident occurs and suddenly Herschell must decide what he actually believes about God. This movie has some visually interesting moments and the editing works well in this film too. It is a movie that will inspire people to think about God and their beliefs. We are pleased to award it our “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages. The film is not for very young children but this movie will speak to viewers of all ages.
