This movie is a shining example of digging down deep! It’s about outlasting problems and finding a way to make things work. James Reed (Bradford Johnson) is a successful California publicist with a girlfriend and a big promotion on the way. He has just gotten a major music star out of some trouble after his auto accident with his ex-wife by convincing the star to take some time off and not publicly commenting on any of the recent negative events. This turns out to be a positive thing later on for James.
After his dad suffers a stroke, James is called back home. Unfortunately, James’ younger brother Tom still blames him for leaving home and sees it as James’ fault for his dad having a heavy work load in helping the family run their bed and breakfast. Things only get worse for a time, especially when their father sadly dies.
James, always a smart thinker on his feet, finds a way to help save the bed and breakfast and he might just have found love to boot. Is moving back home the right thing for him? And can he find lasting peace with his brother? Although this one isn’t for little kids, it will appeal to younger viewers too and we are pleased to award this inspirational movie our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages. It is a wholesome and yet realistic film which shows that forgiveness is possible and so is a fresh start. Bradford Johnson is terrific as James and the rest of the cast is in fine form too. This one happily earns five Doves from us.
