“In the Name of God” is a dramatic movie about respect! Eric Roberts stars as a support group leader who uses the Ten Commandments as guidelines in showing respect toward others. A pastor’s daughter who bullied people with text messages benefits from the group, as do others. Mason is a teen that has been in and out of foster care homes all his life. He lets a leader in on a secret as to why he was originally placed in foster care. He has bounced around in the “system” all his life but one family and their son Nate refuse to give up on Mason.
The themes of this terrific movie include earning respect and putting others before one’s self and never giving up on people. The acting and story are remarkable. “In the Name of God” has earned our Faith Friendly Seal for all ages, but is not for young children. This film clearly shows that change is possible!
