“Unconditional” starring Think Like A Man’s Michael Ealy and 50 First Dates Lynn Collins — I was invited to a screening of this new film. Based on real life event events — which was shocking — considering I was cringing at some of the most hoaky parts of the movie…lol. Both characters in the movie are childhood friends that have faced very different struggles in their lives. The movie revolves around forgiveness, love, underprivileged, children, mentoring, parentless homes and community. All the makings of an interesting movie and it was — my only complaint was the theater concession purchase..lol
I can’t take from the movie that it was a great message — and is being marketed to the christian audience. Some parts of the script and acting were just a little to annoyingly hoaky for me, but I did enjoy the movie for the most part. Would I recommend you going to see this? Yes. The little girl in the movie was so adorable — well all the kids were adorable, but the little girls central character was so cute. And I admittedly did tear up, mouth quivered at a few not so happy parts of the film, but then the hoakyness snapped me right back…lol Micheal & Lynn did a wonderful job and I hope that when the film opens — it brings back strong numbers. Unconditional opens in theaters on September 21, 2012. – Sab
Samantha Crawford’s life is a storybook life: she’s happily married, she lives on a ranch where she keeps her beloved horse, and the stories she’s told and illustrated since childhood have become published books. When her husband Billy is killed in a senseless act of violence, Sam loses her faith and her will to live. But a death-defying encounter with two children leads to a reunion with Joe, her oldest friend. Inspired by true events, UNCONDITIONAL stars Michael Ealy (Think Like A Man, Barbershop) and Lynn Collins (John Carter). As Sam watches her friend Joe care for and love the kids in his under-resourced neighborhood, she begins to realize that no matter life’s circumstances, the love of God is always reaching out to us.
