“Providence” is a unique and interesting film. Featuring no dialogue, it presents the story in 78 minutes of scenes on the screen, dealing with a young girl named Rachel and a boy named Mitchell and showing what happens in their lives over a period of 40 years. Rachel’s grandmother Rose lovingly gives her a Bible for Christmas, just before she passes away. The Bible is mistakenly taken away and winds up in a shop of used items for sale, where young Mitchell picks it up. Young Mitchell is dedicated in his Christian walk, despite being mocked and harassed by the bullies of his school. He and Rachel are close for a time, but then she moves on, entering other relationships. Mitchell eventually goes to Bible college and becomes a minister, while Rachel wanders in her life and drops out of a marriage at the last minute. But providence ties her path together with Mitchell’s once more.
The film shows how simple relationships or a simple deed, like giving someone a Bible, can echo throughout a person’s life. We are pleased to award “Providence” our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12-plus.
