Every Boy Needs A Hero *Movie Review* + Giveaway



This is a very heart warming movie about the importance of father and son relationships. According to the movie's website, out of 24 million children in America, 1 out of 3 live in biological father absent homes. These are staggering statistics!

                         

About the Movie 
"A man who left his town and his family behind returns to a town full of broken relationships, and is determined to make things right. In attempt to win back his son through the game they both love, he forms a little league baseball team designed to involve both fathers and sons in a common effort. In addition to mending his own relationship, he begins to turn the heart of a father in prison, and transform a town."

Malachi 4:6
"He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse."

A father leaves home to make a better life for his family. He returns 7 years later when his wife is dying of cancer. His relationship with his college aged son is broken. The father then realizes he made a big mistake all those years ago. He comes up with a great plan to coach baseball with his son.

This movie does have some moments that are unrealistic, like releasing a father from prison to watch his son play a game of ball. It has great moments too! I love that the coach brought a failing team with absent fathers together getting their fathers involved. It really made me think about my own relationship with my kiddos. 

I am at every event they have. I am their personal cheerleader. What about in the day to day though? "Mom look at this!" "Can you get this for me?" Am I too wrapped up in my own work? Why must I always tell them to wait, and then they have to remind me because I was so busy I forgot. The years are passing by. They are quickly getting older. I need to make more time NOW while my thoughts on things still mean the world to them.

I recommend this movie to all families. It is a MUST SEE! You can find it at your local Family Christian store or here on their website.
