I had not seen a whole lot about this movie other than a billboard when I took Princess to Nashville for her 13th birthday trip this past September.  Then I read a very short synopsis. They did a good job of piquing your interest.  Giving you just enough of the story to want to see more.  I wasn’t sure what I was getting into but when Fly By Promotions offered it to me to review and giveaway I gladly accepted.

If you can’t see the trailer below you can click here to see it.


It’s a family friendly film. I was actually very impressed with that considering it has actress Ashley Judd and actor Seth Green. Not that they are bad at their jobs but I’ve seen movies with both that were definitely not family friendly.  However, this one is and I was glad that when my kids walked into the room there was nothing to be shocked at.

I will say its not my absolute favorite movie but I did enjoy it. It is worth watching at least once. My heart went out to the mom’s in this film and to Ryan Wade, played by Blake Rayne.  It’s a storyunnamed of a man trying to find his own call in life.  His father wants him to follow in his own footsteps as a minister. However, Ryan has a pull to sing and write music. So you see the struggle not only the son is having with trying to find where he fits in but also with the father as he has to try to let go and let his son follow God’s plan for his life. There were some very moving moments in the story.

I was impressed with Ray Liotta and Ashley Judd in this movie. Blake Rayne sounds exactly like Elvis when he sings. At one point I thought I was listening to Elvis singing the songs but the music is all original to this movie. If you enjoyed the music of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s you will definitely enjoy this movie.

For me this movie receives 4 out of 5 stars.
