John and Alexa Taylor sees to have it all; a perfect marriage, a daughter at the top of her class, and an athletic son at the top of his game. But things are not always as they appear. On the very night her father dies, things begin to unravel when her son is caught drinking at a party violating the school’s behavior policy for athletics. The police and the community turn the other way, willing to allow the young athlete to bring them victory regardless of the bad lesson it teaches him. His sister’s pressure to perform is no less severe. At the top of her class, she is expected to be valedictorian, but High School Latin has proven to be much harder than she expected. She finds the perfect opportunity to cheat, and wavers on the decision to be honest, or to be victorious.
Catching Faith is inspired by the real life experiences of Christian Counsellor Andrea M. Polnaszek. John K.D. Graham directs a powerful film about one family’s journey toward a true relationship with God and each other, despite the pressures of the community to keep on with the façade.
This would be a great movie to watch with preteens or older teens, as a way to open a dialogue about the pressures they face, and what's really most important to your family. The pressure to perform hit home for me, as I was also a high achiever at face value, but really struggled to keep it all together. It's something as a parent that I hope to keep in check for my own kids.
