Hello, there! I’m Christopher, which you should have known if you saw my cute little green logo. So, let me not distract you from the following post. I hope you like it! I’d love to hear your thoughts after you’re done reading it! Enjoy!
In 2009, Advent Film Group released their first film, Come What May. It ties together the themes of abortion, relationships, and the importance of doing the right thing.
Caleb Hogan tells his parents that he wants to transfer to Patrick Henry College, for they have the best debate team. Don, Caleb’s dad, is all for it, but his wife, Judith, is reluctant. But, finally, she reluctantly agrees for him to go for at least one year and he can go a second year if he wins the Moot Court Championship.
To Caleb’s dismay, the debate team has to overturn Roe vs. Wade; Caleb is sure they would lose! But his partner, Rachel Morton, is confident that they can win. Along the way, Caleb likes Rachel so much that he asks her out on a date, but she kindly says she won’t date till she knows the relationship is serious.
While her son is preparing his mock case to overturn Roe vs. Wade, Judith is preparing her case at the Supreme Court to allow the law that minors don’t have to ask their parents for an abortion. And her husband wants to publish a book he knows that he is sure that will fire from his job.
All right, this is their first film, so the acting, production, and fades aren’t “amazing.” But don’t let this rub you the wrong way, the story is great! A very well written script! It addresses the topics of abortion and relationships very well and they do it in a very tactful way, something I struggle with.
The script had so much passion in it, and I loved that! And the actors did a good job displaying that emotion. My favorite part of the film was from minutes 49-56. And the scene with the Moot and the Supreme Court was cool.
Overall, it’s a great movie! The quality shouldn't scare you away from this film. The message rings clear and you should see it!
Question for you: would you wanna see a Christian film with imperfections but affirms what you believe in, or see an awesome quality Hollywood film that goes against almost everything you believe in?
Hello again! I’m so happy you finished reading my post, and, boy, do I hope you liked it!
