Dinner and a movie is popular with my husband and myself if its just the two of us or a group of friends. It is what we enjoy doing whether going out or staying in. Last Sunday night was no different. We invited friends and leaders from church over to have tacos and preview the movie Home Run  which is coming out in theaters April 19th. For the viewing we were sent the DVD, a sound track, novel, and a couple of t-shirts which I gave away to our guests.
Since the movie does not come out until April 19th, we were sent one of the first editions and there was no menu on the DVD, just the countdown from 8. Us movie geeks got pretty excited about that.
Once the movie was started, we popped some popcorn, broke out the candy, and got comfy while viewing the movie.
Home Run  is an Impact Productions film produced by David Boyd and stars Vivica Fox, Dorian Brown, and Scott Elrod. It is a faith based film that centers around a major league baseball player that struggles with overcoming childhood abuse, alcohol addiction, and anger management.
After getting ejected from a baseball game main character Cory, played by David Boyd, is forced to return to his hometown to coach a little league baseball team and complete an 8 week Celebrate Recovery program. Although at first he is eager to return to his baseball career, coaching the young baseball team allows Cory to find joy in the game again. It forces him to realize the need to reflect on his past, find a way to forgive, and look to the future for hope and freedom. Cory finds himself on a path of redemption and new found faith in God.
In my opinion this movie is a “home run” and will be a hit when it comes out on the big screen April 19th. The story line, character development, and cinematography were well done. It far surpassed other faith-based films that have been done in the past.
Dave, our pastor friend said “It is like the baseball version of Mighty Ducks. It was very well done and would recommend my congregation seeing it.”
Our Children’s Activity Coordinator friend said “I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed it and wouldn’t mind seeing it again.”
