Screen Shot 2013-04-15 at 2.50.58 PMThis weekend my children and I had the opportunity to sit together and watched This Is Our Time presented by Pure Flix. A warning right from the beginning, be prepared to quickly skip the previews if you are more sensitive to violence or you do not want you children seeing such. I was a little bit surprised to see it and for a moment was concerned about my decision to letting the children watch this movie with my having previewed it myself. However, This is Our Time was totally appropriate for the family, though there were some harder issues and grief addressed. The message of the movie was good and it was nice to see these young classmates come together during a time of tragedy. However, the movie was a little bit slow paced and that acting was just okay and occasionally, especially near the beginning, the message felt a little bit forced. Overall it was a good movie, though, and I encourage you to read a little bit more about it and sign up for my giveaway if you think it might be something that you would like to watch.

The movie tells the interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and Alé (Erin Bethea), who marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb), who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God.

“What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”Releases on DVD and Blu-Ray on Tuesday, April 16. It will be available nationwide at Family Christian Stores and most Christian online and brick-and-mortar retail stores nationwide.
