Dove Review

Now here is a family friendly movie well worth watching! Riley Adams is a Christian girl who gives a presentation on the Great Flood in her college class where she is a sophomore. That is, “Noah’s flood”, something which causes a few eye rolls but the class is used to the “Bible thumper” who, actually, is a very nice girl and not a thumper of Bibles at all. On the other hand, Aleah doesn’t seem like a nice person at all. She makes fun of Riley for her beliefs and is her main competition in the dance class they both have a passion for.

Riley goes very far toward realizing her dream but then a tragic event changes the course of her life and she learns to trust God to find out what path she should take. It turns out to be a surprising one but one which opens up many opportunities for her. This movie demonstrates very well that every cloud has a silver lining and that former foes can indeed become friends. The movie features humor too such as when a trainer wears a girl’s flip flops so she can wear his boots to ride a horse. The music is terrific too, especially a song which features the lyrics, “Jimmy Stewart really got it right, it’s a wonderful life.” Natalie Weese is terrific as Riley as is the rest of the cast. The director, David Matthew Weese, does a wonderful job in giving the viewer an interesting story with realistic characters. This one is not to be missed!

We are happy to award this movie our Dove Seal and we rate it at five Doves, our highest rating. This is a movie the entire family can enjoy together.
