This Documentary Spoke To Me.

Show Me To The Father is the 7th film from the Kendrick Brothers, and their first documentary. It is also their best movie yet. This movie makes me hope that they make more documentaries.

The documentary is focused on a handful of men, including Alex and Stephen- The Kendrick Brothers themselves, some football stars, and more, and their stories about how their Earthly fathers have pointed them to their Heavenly Father.

What makes SMTF so powerful is that they are true stories. Their previous stories have God working in unusual ways- such as making infertile women have quite a few kids. This movie is different, they are real testimonies of Christian men whose fathers raised them or led them to honor and follow Jesus.

From a filmmaking standpoint, this is easily the best made film by the Kendrick Brothers. Albeit bright at times, the cinematography is glorious, the camera placed well- simply put, it looked like a regular movie and not a low budget one.

However, SMTF works best emotionally. It did an amazing job pulling my heartstrings and even making me teary. One story is from Jim Daly, founder of Focus on the Family.

Jim came from an abusive home, and also had many foster families, none of whom actually adopted him. He tells the story of how he looked to his Heavenly Father for the love he seeked, rather than looking to man.

This is where the movie hit me personally. I am a child abuse survivor, which occurred from my stepfather, just 5 years after the death of my biological father. Jim's story doesn't exactly match mine (my abuse was more emotional than physical), but we had similar low points and we both had to look to faith for healing.

Football star Deland McCullough also tells his story- how he was adopted and never knew who his real father was, and how he looked to his childhood coach for fatherly guidance. This story (told in parts) has an amazing plot twist that could be ranked up with The 6th Sense or Fight Club- even the 3 women behind me gasped at the plot twist- and again, this is a real-life story!

Among the other stories, we hear from Alex and Stephen themselves, about how their father Larry has helped them grow, and how that has affected their fatherhood, filmmaking, and even their marriages. This includes yet another plot twist in the story of how Stephen adopted a girl from China.

With awful Christian movies like God's Not Dead, Unplanned, Loving The Bad Man, A Matter of Faith, and other poorly made movies being produced, it is wonderful to see a film like Show Me The Father released. It touched me and even made me tear up, and I don't even have kids yet. Even non-religious viewers could be moved by how these Christians have found hope through their faith.

Even if you are not a Christian, if you want a powerful, moving film, there are few that I could suggest more than this one. I owe my deepest gratitude to the Kendrick Brothers for this fantastic movie. This simple Christian movie has what the best movies of any genre does- HEART.

Poignant

The inspiring new documentary from the Kendrick Brothers about the power of a father.

A collection of true stories about growing up with or without a father, and how that changed them as they in turn became fathers, and how they view their Heavenly Father. Heartfelt and honest, with a variety of different perspectives and insights, featuring Tony Evans, Jim Daly, Stephen Kendrick and more!

Engaging and well edited, the interviews are well placed, and I enjoyed hearing each of the heartfelt stories of triumph and heartache. I'm not typically the documentary type, but this was as engaging as a screenplay, and I can see why this movie was close to their hearts. Definitely, an inspirational film to share with the family, that points to the only perfect Father.

Many thanks to Sony Pictures for providing this product/product information for review. Opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.

I laughed, I cried, I was shocked! Great heart-warming stories!

I thought that this movie was exactly what I needed to see today. It touches your heart no matter what your situation is. I am no critic, but the photography, music, acting, and interviews were top-notch. I was interested during the entire movie and left wanting to be told just one more story. Some of the stories had surprising endings. This is definitely the type of movie that America needs to see.
