If you like faith-based films that inspire and encourage you, then plan to see Home Run when it opens in theaters on April 19.
About Home Run Baseball all-star Cory Brand knows what it takes to win in the big leagues. But off the field, with memories of his past haunting him, his life is spiraling out of control. Hoping to save her client's career and reputation after a DUI and a team suspension, Cory's agent sends him back to the small town where he grew up.
Forced to coach the local youth baseball team and spend eight weeks in the only recovery program in town, Cory can't wait to return to his old life as quickly as possible. As his young players help him experience the joy of the game, Cory discovers his need to find freedom from his past and hope for his future … and win back the love he left behind. With this unexpected second chance, Cory finds himself on a powerful journey of transformation and redemption.
Max Lucado says, "'Home Run' reminds us of the power of forgiveness, the richness of redemption, and the wisdom of trusting God to revive us."
Joyce Meyer adds, "'Home Run' portrays the church in its beauty—true life transformation through real and honest relationships with one another and with Jesus."
Tickets are available and show times are listed here for the theaters where this powerful, redemptive parable will be opening. Make plans now to bring a group to see HOME RUN on opening weekend, April 19-21.
Wondering who will be impacted by Home Run? Take a look at this DadPad blog post written by Jeff Abramovitz:
"Raise your hand if you had or know someone who had a difficult childhood. Raise your other hand if you or someone you know has struggled with some kind of addiction. Since most of us now have two raised hands put them down and get ready to buy a ticket for the opening weekend of the movie, Home Run that comes out April 19-21."
