A love story for a new generation
29 January 2013 | by Jokers-Knight-OutSee all my reviews

Most may see this is just as another Christian flick. Worse yet, an *indie* Christian flick (and there's very few I've seen worth watching at all). What caught my attention about it wasn't first that it has Sean Astin in it (famous for being in The Goonies and Lord of the Rings), but that the screenplay is done by Greg Mitchell, a recent addition to my favorite authors list (for his Coming Evil trilogy- The Strange Man, Enemies of the Cross, Dark Hour- and his YA sci-fi novel Rift Jump). Even though the main storyline takes place in this time and age, the necessary story takes place in the Book of Hosea, a rarely taught-upon Old Testament book. My guess is churches don't like the idea of teaching that God would even love a prostitute, but in the Book of Hosea, that's what God tells Hosea to do. Not only that, but said prostitute, Gomer, had been considered one of the 100 most beautiful women in all the world of her time. So, why does this story have relevance to Sean Astin's youth pastor's story? Because, after an accident happens to make highly superficial teenage girl Ashley blow up in the face of the other kids, and she challenges them all that they don't know anything about how it feels to have her life, he gives a nice tale of Hosea. But it's not the "Sunday school" version some may have heard. In other words, it's not watered down, it's actually fleshed-out for people to understand very well. How can one know, without reading the Bible that it's fleshed out? One of the campers says he's read Hosea and doesn't remember a part of the story that the pastor mentions. And the pastor admits that what he says isn't in there, but he's giving certain details in there to make it more appreciated for what will happen. Granted, it's not the edgy type of Christian flick like To Save A Life, but it's still interesting enough to catch attention for people who could care less about how others think of them. Yes, it's indie, but not all the performance would tip that off. In fact, even the most typical people (character-wise) have differentials that make them more believable. With the Hosea story, every detail is not only believable, but also historically accurate, notably the time period that the Jews had turned from God and worshiped pagan idols and judged superficially rather than relying on God. In the end, it became a tearjerker, not only with what Hosea does to have Gomer back in his arms and show true agape (unconditional love), but also a shocking secret revealed by the youth pastor's wife and how it all ties to make Hosea all that much more relevant.
