“Saved By Grace” is a delightful and touching film to watch! Featuring a realistic story, solid acting, inspiring music, and tight direction, this movie is for the faith market what food is for the hungry. It nourishes and supplies a spiritual need. It deals with the realistic story of a former police officer, named Rick, who lost his wife in a violent shooting. Rick is estranged from his son and bitter at God, when a young woman named Grace comes into his life, and her name soon seems like a perfect fit. Her warm and loving ways, openness and acceptance, and sense of adventure begin to break down the walls that Rick has erected. Joey Lawrence is excellent as Rick, just as Catalina Rodriguez is as Grace.
The film features a few surprises, including what Grace herself has endured in her past and the losses she suffered. The changes that take place in Rick are remarkable. Early in the film, when told God is good, he asks, “Is He?” in a sarcastic tone. The growing bond between Rick and Grace illustrates the story of God’s grace and demonstrates so well what a little love can do to heal the hurts of the past. It also features the story of reconciliation between a father and his son. This film is a must-see! It has earned five Doves, our highest rating.
