The Home Coming (1996)


Jordy Rembrandt is a big-city tough guy with an attitude and a history of bad decisions. When he’s sent to a small-town high school to complete his senior year, he discovers “fitting in” takes on a whole new meaning.

Dove Review

Jordy Rembrandt needs God and this movie is about his journey from being a young rebel to admitting his need for God. Jordy is a high school football player who clashes with some of his classmates but finds a girl that is interested in him, a girl named Pam. He takes God lightly for a while but soon finds he needs the very God he has been rejecting.

Due to a few content issues we are recommending this movie for ages twelve plus but recommend it we do! See this one soon as it demonstrates the radical change God can make in one’s life. We are happy to award this film our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages twelve plus.
