I wanted to take a moment to share a movie that my wife and I watched last night. We went to Block Buster Movie Rentals to see what we could rent over the weekend. Kathy picked out a movie called Flywheel. Now if anyone is familiar with Fireproof, which is the latest movie out by the Kendrick Brothers knows what a wonderful movie it was. Flywheel was the first movie attempt made and I just thought it was incredible!
This movie was so touching and awe inspiring that I just had to share it with everyone in case they have not seen it.
Here is the story line directly from the website!
Jay Austin wants to sell used cars in the worst way ... and that's exactly how he does business at his dealership. Promising much more than he can ever deliver, he'll do whatever it takes to sell a car. His manipulative ways permeate all of his relationships—even his wife and son know they can't trust him.
But as Jay works on restoring a classic convertible, he begins to see that God is working on restoring him as well. Coming face-to-face with the reality of how he truly conducts himself, Jay Austin begins the ride of his life as he commits to honoring God with his business, his relationships, and his life!
FLYWHEEL: Director's Cut is the first movie produced by Sherwood Pictures, the movie making ministry of a Georgia church that went on to produce FACING THE GIANTS in 2006. FLYWHEEL offers the same faith-filled warmth and humor that audiences loved in FACING THE GIANTS. The Kendrick Brothers wrote both films and FLYWHEEL also stars Alex Kendrick (Coach Grant Taylor). FLYWHEEL will have you cheering (and crying) once again!
Can you believe that this movie was made with a $20,000 dollar budget! The story line is touching and deals with Greed, selfishness, Pride, Lying, Sin, Trust, being humble in Gods eyes, and so much more. It also shows how a father and husband learns what it means to love God and family.
TWO THUMBS UP!
Please if you have not seen this movie, go rent it if you can! I am going to go rent Facing the Giants movie after this.
