    The Blindside

    Teenager Michael Oher is surviving on his own, virtually homeless, when he is spotted on the street by Leigh Anne Tuohy. Learning that the young man is one of her daughter's classmates, Leigh Anne insists that Michael - wearing shorts and a t-shirt in the rain - come out of the cold. Without a moment's hesitation, she invites him to stay at the Touhy home for the night. What starts out as a gesture of kindness turns into something more as Michael becomes part of the Touhy family despite the differences in their backgrounds.

    Living in his new environment, the teen faces a completely different set of challenges to overcome. And as a family helps Michael fulfill his potential, both on and off the football field, Michael's presence in the Touhy's lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own.

Best friends, classmates, and peers, T.J., Jed, and Brent are all starting players for an undefeated varsity basketball team joined by Jackson, their loudmouthed hyper-enthusiastic friend. All four share a history of companionship, a notable nickname, and all the confidence and exuberance of youth.

    Their basketball season is shattered when Brent's older brother, Mike, attracts an Irish gang leader named Sean O'Sullivan. Sean is intent on setting up a rural meth lab and supply operation in the peaceful community. Despite plenty of cash to fund the start-up, Sean isn't sure that he can pull together a team of locals to do the dirty work.

    Since Mike is the one who invited Sean to town, he naturally sees himself in a key leadership role in the gang. Both Mike and Sean see the need and benefit of having a high-school aged member to infiltrate the school system from within.

  • New DVDs For the Family

    Posted on June 12, 2012 by Family Christian

    With the kids out of school, they tend to sleep in a little longer and stay up a little later. The evenings are filled with a lot of "What can I do now?" Without a lot of programming available on network TV, many families have extra time to utilize the DVD player.

    Here are a few movie trailers that you may find interesting. Some of these DVDs are available now at Family Christian and some will become available soon.

    First up is Courageous

    Filled with action-packed police drama, Courageous is the fourth film from Sherwood Pictures, the moving-making ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Riveted moviegoers will once again find themselves laughing, crying, and cheering as they are challenged and inspired by everyday heroes who long to be the type of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children.

    October Baby

    October Baby offers viewers an enjoyable, entertaining, intensely human film about friends hitting the road together and finding more than they bargained for: adventure, romance, truth and the power to forgive. But, this film is even more than that—it tells the story of one young woman’s journey based on numerous stories of abortion survivors. October Baby honestly and evenhandedly invites audiences to explore their own views of life’s value and the importance of their choices.

    Travel the Road

    Travel the Road tells the dramatic story of Tim Scott and Will Decker on an epic year and a half quest to preach the gospel to the end of the earth. From the forbidding Himalayas of Tibet to the sweltering jungles of Cambodia, every step of their real-life adventure is presented in stunning detail. There were no film crews or safety teams to help them along the way as the missionaries themselves captured every frame of footage. Travel the Road is an unscripted, inspiring journey through twenty-five countries that has motivated a generation to action and helped spur a modern day movement for overseas missions.

    The Encounter: Paradise Lost

    The follow-up to the Pure Flix hit movie, “The Encounter” increases the intensity and action as a group of damaged individuals face the life-changing decision of accepting Christ -invited by a man claiming to be Jesus Christ himself.
    A retiring drug smuggler (MIANO), his drug-addicted wife and his ruthless bodyguard (DANIELS) find themselves trapped by a suspended DEA Special Agent (WHITE) at a Thai resort owned by a troubled former Wall Street investment banker (Hutton) and his wife, who mourn the loss of their only son in a devastating tsunami. It is an explosive mix of personalities. Violence looms, but a mysterious guest, claiming to be Jesus
    Christ (MARCHIANO), arrives to offer each of them one final chance at redemption in this inspiring, thought-provoking thriller.

    Escape

    Doctors Paul and Kim Jordan are struggling to find peace in their lives after the tragic loss of their baby's life. Paul (C. Thomas Howell from The Amazing Spider Man, ET) persuades Kim to escape reality and flee to the exquisite islands of Southeast Asia. Paradise becomes a nightmare when he is kidnapped by human traffickers in need of a skilled doctor.

    Faced with a fight for survival, Paul finds himself captive alongside the wealthy Malcolm Andrews (John Rhys-Davies from Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings). He quickly realizes there is no hope for his captors dying leader and is forced to examine his eternal fate. With life and death in the balance, Malcolm challenges Paul to stop running from God. Will Paul realize that trust in God is his only hope for escape and reunion with his wife?
