“War Room” is a terrific movie, gripping and inspiring! It has that dynamic mix of good acting, an interesting storyline, and humor tossed in at the right moments. The movie focuses on Tony and Elizabeth Jordan (T.C. Stallings and Priscilla Evans Shirer), a young couple who have an abundance of material things and a beautiful daughter, but are lacking richness in their relationships with each other and with God.
Elizabeth, a real estate agent, visits an elderly woman named Miss Clara (Karen Ambercrombie) who points out Elizabeth’s need for a closer walk with God. Karen Ambercrombie is a delight as Miss Clara, giving her character a mixture of sweet, sassy, and spunk. The nuances and humor of this film help teach lessons in a direct, but non-offensive, way.
Elizabeth’s husband is seen having lunch with another woman. Although nothing happens, he knows he shouldn’t have had lunch with her. He is seen by a family friend who then tells Elizabeth about the lunch. There is a humorous scene between Elizabeth and Tony that night at dinner, and Tony notices his wife reacts differently than he expected: she is calm and kind. He soon discovers that, like Miss Clara, Elizabeth has set up a “war room” of prayer and he has a choice to follow her example and save his family or continue living as he has been.
Take church groups, friends, and family to see this wonderful movie about the power of prayer. “War Room” is powerful, dramatic, and potentially life changing, earning five Doves, our best rating. We are proud to give this movie our Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for all ages, though it is not intended for the very young.
