This film features good acting and realistic themes. Jay Harding is struggling in his marriage because he has put an emphasis on money and material things. His wife Kim badgers Jay at times but Jay does things like telling the kids to shut up when they sing Christmas carols. But he has a good friend who happens to be a Christian and he continually talks to Jay about finding peace in Christ.
This movie makes the point, and very well, that God can change a person’s heart if he/she wants to change. It also shows that marriages can be worked on and if a spark remains between the couple that there is hope for reconciliation, even when it’s been going bad. One great comment near the end of the movie is, “The grace one can experience from failure is greater than the pain.”
