Movie Synopsis on IMDB:
Confessions of a Prodigal Son is a coming-of-age tale following Sean (Nathan Clarkson) as he rebels and leaves his home, family and father (Kevin Sorbo) to figure out life on his own. Two years later–while still on the journey to find life’s answers–Sean suddenly finds himself questioning everything he thought he knew as he is confronted by a professor (Darwin Harris) who challenges Sean to see his life as a story; a best friend (Azel James) walking a dangerous path; and a strong and beautiful young woman (Rachael Lee) who is on her own journey to answers. Each one of these elements causes Sean to greater examine the choices he is making. The story is one of drama, laughter, relationships, faith, and redemption, ultimately asking the question “Can broken stories have happy endings?”.
I when I heard that I was going to be able to see and review this movie, I was excited! I have always liked watching Christian movies and being able to review one is awesome! I seen that Kevin Sorbo was playing a character in the movie and immediately remembered him being in the “God’s Not Dead” movie a few months back. I really liked that movie which made me want to watch this movie even more.
After watching this movie, I thought it was really good. You could kinda tell that it was not a mainstream movie, but it had an awesome meaning behind it. The prodigal son has always been a favorite story of mine from the Bible. I would definitely watch this movie again. It was interesting watching Kevin Sorbo play a preacher when in “God’s Not Dead” he was an atheist, but he did a great job in both roles. I will say that there could have been a few more songs in the movie. There were some spaces in the movie where it was very quiet and almost felt like needing something to feel the gap. Overall, I really liked this movie. The characters were great and acted well together. I give this movie a 4 out of 5 stars.
I received this movie in exchange for my honest review from a post on Business 4 Blogging.
