Last night, my family, church family and I went to see the movie premiere of THE BREAKTHROUGH! Wow and wow again. This POWERFUL movie had soooo many thought-provoking and lifechanging messages. The story was just WOW. I mean just WOW! There were many relatable moments and moments I just couldn’t imagine experiencing.
I’m struggling to write this because I don’t want to share many details like some other reviews I saw. So NO spoilers here but just WOW. “BREAKTHROUGH is based on the inspirational true story of one mother’s unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith’s adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost.
Let me say this one more time. The Breakthrough is based on a TRUE STORY. I mean WOW.
You, your family and friends have to go see this movie when it hits theaters next week on April 17th. I feel confident that you will thank me later.
My church family and I are soooo proud of our own Pastor Samuel Rodriguez, Devon Franklin and Stephen “Steph” Curry who produced and executive produced this OUTSTANDING movie. At the end of our church services, we end by saying, Let’s go change the world.” Well, I know this movie will change lives for the better.
I don’t want to say much more until you have seen the movie. So, I will HUSH for now.
The Hollywood Reporter wrote a pretty detailed review stating,”In the mini-genre of Christian, faith-based films, Breakthrough must be credited as one of the most effective additions to the roster. Admittedly there is not a high bar to meet, but this inspirational story directed by Roxann Dawson benefits from strong performances and a minimum of treacly preaching. Basketball superstar Stephen Curry acted as one of the executive producers. Box office should be solid.” I don’t want you to read their review until after you see the movie. Ok?
Would you do me a HUGE favor? After you see this movie, PLEASE return to this blog post to share YOUR thoughts on the movie. Cool beans? I loved the movie and I’m very interested to read what YOUR reviews are about THE BREAKTHROUGH MOVIE.
