I recently got the chance to review two family movies: Find a Way and Adrenaline.
In Find a Way, based on Harry Cohen, a family gets up on a Sunday morning to get ready for church - only their son won't wake up. The
untimely death of an outstanding young person naturally brings up
questions about faith and God’s presence. How can God allow such a
thing to happen? The film uses this lens as the event through which characters deal with real life issues such
as materialism, self-absorption and ambition at all cost.
Adrenaline follows Joseph Jenkins, a competitive race car driver, who is paralyzed in a car crash during a race. Distraught because of the loss of his racing career, he works with a physical therapist and other supportive friends and family to get back to racing.
Both movies are family-friendly, for those with older children. Because of the serious nature of the films, young kids wouldn't be able to grasp what was going on. However, both films deal with real-life issues in a positive way, and provide good, clean, family entertainment for older kids and teens.
