1 Message DVD

This month being breast cancer awareness this was a very fitting movie to review.  The message of the movie is right on theme with BCA courage, strength and hope.  Oh, the power of 1 message.  It can change a life turn a person around and bring the beginning of healing.  Helps us to see that we need to reach out to those that are truly hurting.  During the movie you flip back and froth between present day and 1 year past and Becca's diagnosis and treatment and how she shuts herself away from the world.   It is a longer movie about two and a half hours.  There are a few brief scenes where Rebecca does take a drink to try to forget all her life's problems that she is so caught up in.  It is a wonderful message.  Very well done.  It isn't a bad movie but not sure if little kids would want to really set for the movie since it isn't a message that they'd be interested in; may find them bored with it, but good tool if you want to teach teens a good message and learn more of one's breast cancer journey.  Nothing bad in it just don't think little kids would be thrilled by it like a cartoon or action movie.  I really think it is a wonderful movie for teen and twentish girls to watch and learn from.

She was broken, betrayed, and finished with life. But life wasn’t finished with her.

Becca had it all: beauty, a successful fiancé, and the job of her dreams. Everything was going according to her plan until the day she was diagnosed with breast cancer. In the blink of an eye, her entire life came crashing down around her. The fiancé ran off with some new fling. The dream job wouldn’t wait for her to get better. The toll cancer took on her body made her feel like less than a woman. Broken and alone, she refused to leave the house. She wanted cancer to finish what it started. But in her darkest hour, she found a mysterious ray of hope in the most unlikely of places.

Kelly’s Filmworks and director Jefferson Moore (Clancy) present this inspiring story of a shattered woman who discovers the resilience to keep living in the message of a man she’s never even met. Also starring: Ashley Kate Adams (Royal Pains), Mark Smeby (The Perfect Gift), and Matt Wallace (Forrest Gump).
