PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER ‘WILDFLOWER’ OFFERS MESSAGE OF HOPE 



“Gripping and intense… This film needs to be seen!”– Dove Foundation

I have been blogging since 2008 and have reviewed many movies, including countless faith-based films.  Out of all the movies I have reviewed, I have to say that WILDFLOWER ranks up near the top of one of my favorites.  Why you ask?  Well, if you have seen faith-based films then you know that they are either hit or miss.  Some are cheesy or some really push God on you go.  But, then there are a few instances where a faith-based movie is made so well that you forget you are watching a faith-based movie.  The story line and plot really consume you in a good way and keep your eyes fixated on the television as you sit on the edge of the couch wondering what will happen next.


I have to admit after seeing the trailer for WILDFLOWER I wasn't really sure I would like it.  Yes, it was full of drama...but, I had never heard of the main characters in the film, which usually means the film is low budget or may not be that good.  I am so glad I gave this movie a chance as it really was good and I love the actors and actresses they chose to play these characters.  With all the complexities of the characters, it was nice to see how their story lines meshed together and worked off of one another.


WILDFLOWER follows a young girl who is carrying around baggage from a traumatic experience she keeps seeing in her head.  She has no idea what all this means and no one believes her...that is until she meets Josh, a young man who recently lost his girlfriend in an accident, which he blames himself for.  Together Chloe and Josh learn to trust each other and connect on a deeper level through their faith, that helps them both overcome their separate grief and finally move forward with their lives.


Every one of us has found ourselves in a low point of our lives.  We could be suffered from grief after the loss of a loved one, trying to come to terms over a failed relationship, our own personal struggles with faith and God, etc.  No matter our low points, our trust in God and knowing that he is always with us and loves us, helps us reconcile our past so that we can move forward and live our lives like God wants us to.  Yes, we all struggle with sorrow and past regrets, but we can't dwell on these things.  Instead we have to find strength in our relationships with others and God to move forward.  Chloe and Josh don't want their struggles to define them, and this movie is a remarkable and oh so moving story of on how these two characters confront their past traumas so that they can feel free and live life with purpose and meaning and without regret.


This story really pulled at my heartstrings as I felt a personal connection to the story and the underlying messages.  After finding out I had cancer and then having to undergo treatment,  I found myself questioning my faith and wondering why God dealt this set of cards to me.  I had family and friends telling me that God only gives you what He thinks you can handle, or that God is there for you, you just have to trust in your higher power that everything will be OK.  But, if you ever experienced cancer or another life threatening disease, you know you don't have a clear head and that you question "why?" many times.  I found myself going through a dark period near the end of treatment when I didn't think I could handle it anymore and found my strength dissipating. But, I found my way back to God and my faith helped me through it.  And, now I can say that my cancer doesn't define me.  It has, however, made me a stronger person.  And, if I could take on and beat cancer, I can take on anything life (not God) deals me.  


WILDFLOWER is a must see movie for those who like inspiring movies.  Get ready to be moved both emotionally and spiritually.  And, don't forget the tissues, as there will be scenes that will pull at your heartstrings and tear up.  I can't stop raving about this emotional raw and captivating movie and can't wait for you all to see it when it arrives on DVD on April 5th.
