This is one of the best faith based movies I’ve seen, and I highly recommend this film for a number of reasons. For starters, PRICELESS doesn’t seek to deliver opinionated doctrine – there are no debates in the word of God delivered to viewers. This film represents real struggles that many of us face with our faith. And these struggles are real-world trials that believers of Jesus walk through each day, living inside of a broken world.
The plot (based on a true story, as noted in the introduction), joins together characters who are all facing great tragedy and loss. A young man who recently lost his wife, followed by having his daughter taken from him, is battling to find himself in a world that doesn’t seem to make sense to him anymore. He crosses paths with two young women who have been ripped away from their father’s hands, to be delivered into the wolf’s den. The older sister believes in God and knows He is with her always. Yet, her faith doesn’t protect her from physical trials – from traveling through the fire, so to speak. When the troubled young man hears an inner voice inside of him, he’s faced with a life changing decision to walk by faith not by sight. But he’s not alone in his pursuit as another troubled character (a man who lost his daughter), enters the scene to provide him guidance and wisdom along the way.
I’m not going to spoil the movie for anyone reading this. I just want to say this… Lives are lost and deep scars were created throughout the stories of these characters. This is not a fairy-tale journey of finding Heaven on Earth for anyone involved. Like the lives of the apostles and the disciples, these souls all walked through great tribulation. The happy ending is revealed in God’s glory – HIS perfect plan to reveal purpose even in our pain.
The actors were phenomenal. PRICELESS is not a budget film and the message was well received. I highly recommend this movie to anyone and everyone as a beautiful demonstration of how our Almighty Creator has his hand in everything – the good and the bad times that we experience throughout life. Like a masterful puzzle that our Lord constructs with great meaning, we are told that we will suffer many afflictions in this life, but that ALL THINGS WORK FOR THE GOOD OF THOSE WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE.
PRICELESS the movie is available on DVD and also through most digital providers, such as Apple Itunes and Amazon. I’d love to read your comments and hear your feedback after you watch it.
