Now Available on DVD --- Abel's Field (Review and Giveaway)

"Left motherless by tragedy and abandoned by his father, high school senior Seth McArdle (Samuel Davis) faces enormous pressure as he strives to support his little sisters. At school, he endures the daily bullying of the football team. But fighting back only finds him singled out for punishment and assigned to an after-school work detail under the supervision of the reserved groundskeeper, Abel (SOUL SURFER’S Kevin Sorbo). Much to his surprise, Seth discovers that Abel may be the only one who truly understands his struggles. As dark times lure Seth toward desperate measures, the reluctant Abel may be the one person who can point him back toward the light."
My Thoughts:

Even though I have seen other heartwarming films that pair two different characters and watch them become unlikely friends, I have to say Abel's Field was one of my favorite inspirational movies I have seen in a while.  This movie follows Seth, whose mother passes away and who is abandoned by his father and brother, perseveres and will do anything to help raise his two younger sisters and keep his remaining family together.  Seth finds himself working a handful of jobs to make ends meet, but can't hold onto the family house due to debt.

As Seth and Abel's friendship blossoms, you see both men dealing with forgiveness, their beliefs in God and redemption, and you begin to realize that people are put into our lives for one reason or another and we have to embrace these relationships, as they ultimately help us on our life's path set forth by God.

This movie would make for a discussion piece with older children about faith, hope, God and redemption and unlikely friendships
.  And, Abel's Field is a movie that will be enjoyed over and over again by families.  So, if you are looking for a heartwarming family film to share with your family, why not consider Abel's Field.  You will not be disappointed.
