Chasing Grace

About Chasing Grace

A tragic accident threatens to destroy a pastor’s family and sets into motion a complex betrayal between two brothers, while exposing secrets no one wants to face.

Pastor Jonathan Matheson lives in a world of black and white, yet finds a way to navigate the “grey in-between” to work to his advantage, while facing one of the most tragic moments of his life. Set in small-town America and woven inside a tale of redemption, “Chasing Grace” is a story of how one family takes on the burden of guilt in order to make sense of their loss. While pointing the finger of blame at his brother, Pastor Jonathan also chooses to hide from the truth while trying to escape his own personal demons. “Chasing Grace” is loosely based upon true events and provides a powerful story about the redeeming power of forgiveness.

I found this movie to be quite an interesting movie.  Yes, it shows many negative aspects of alcoholism, but it also takes in the healing, forgiveness and closer there is in alcoholism as well.  This movie shows many things that alcoholism can do to a family.  The acting was performed well.  Though there was a death, shooting scene there wasn't any blood or gross parts just alluded to them (ex.: you saw the person with the gun and heard it go off but that is all).  If you want a movie that will help you open up to the drinking subject with your children then this would be an excellent one.  There are many talking and learning points in this movie.  It can bring out the discussions that is for sure.
