About Abel's Field
Left motherless by tragedy and abandoned by his father, high school senior Seth McArdle (Samuel Davis) faces enormous pressure as he strives to support his little sisters. At school, he endures the daily bullying of the football team. But fighting back only finds him singled out for punishment and assigned to an after-school work detail under the supervision of the reserved groundskeeper, Abel (SOUL SURFER’S Kevin Sorbo). Much to his surprise, Seth discovers that Abel may be the only one who truly understands his struggles. As dark times lure Seth toward desperate measures, the reluctant Abel may be the one person who can point him back toward the light.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment
Rated PG
Release date 1/22/13
I was able to review this movie this weekend and it was a wonderful family movie.  You feel for Seth as he tries his hardest in the situation he is given.  He must make the choice of doing what it right in every situation no matter how hard the peer pressure is put on him.  A lesson that all must learn.  This movie isn't all about sports though there are some sport scenes, it isn't about romance though Seth does take a girl on a date.  It is about doing what is right.  Though it is posted as PG it was for brief smoking/drinking scene, violence little scuffle in the school hallway/locker room etc, a school break in those kind of things.  No bad language or sex scene though.

  1. It would be very hard for a high school boy to take care of his family. It looks like a wonderful story.

  2. It is a family movie


  3. haven't seen Kevin Sorbo in anything a quite a while - regnod(at)yahoo(d0t)com

  4. I would like to win the movie to watch with my grandchildren. It is very hard for kids to do the right thing. I think the movie might be helpful in that regard.

  5. I like that it shows how this young man stands up under adversity and pressure and I would love to see how Abel is a help and mentor to him. Oh and I love Kevin Sorbos acting!
