Synopsis

Tapestry is the story of a man (Stephen Baldwin) in the midst of a heavy personal and spiritual crisis. Aided by his Father (Burt Young) and his family, he embarks on a personal journey that will forever change him.

Dove Review

Tapestry admits, even to itself, that even the richest lives are vulnerable to great hardship. This certainly applies to Ryan’s (Stephen Baldwin) life when it seems, all at once, his life begins to unravel. Following the loss of his prominent job, his marriage and home life begin to gradually crumble. The strings along relevant themes of struggle and temptation make for a difficult but in-depth look as far as faith-based films go.

Although the film characterizes some of the people and situations in broad, black-and-white strokes, there is bravery to be recognized in the film to tackle these hard subjects. Further, the film does so in a way that is clean and largely approachable to audiences. Even then, as far as subject matter goes, too-young viewers may not fully be able to understand and respond to the events of the film. For this reason, the film is more appropriate to be Dove-Approved for Ages 12+.

The Dove Take

More raw than many faith-based films, Tapestry highlights a handful of stories that illustrate life’s hardships and the fruits of overcoming them. Lovers of Christian cinema will have lots of lessons to extract.
