Catching Faith presents a powerful behind-the-scenes look at the “perfect family” mentality. While occasionally cliche, this fascinating drama shows that we shouldn’t try to hide our family’s faults and issues.
Catching Faith is a film that starts out with a seemingly perfect family. We meet the Taylor family, a mother, father, son, and daughter. On the outside, they look like the perfect example of a family. Their daughter is in the running to be valedictorian and their son is a star football player.
However, as we get deeper into the film, we get to look past the superficial layer and we begin to learn that this family has some serious problems. The issue is the way they ignore their problems, not wanting to ruin their perfect family image.
This movie is very convicting as it forces us as the audience to examine our own lives and see if we’re falling into some of these same pitfalls in our own family lives.
Catching Faith shows us that we can be open about our family’s faults and issues. We can’t hold it all inside and hope that our issues and faults simply go away. We need God and other believers to surround us and support us through our struggles and difficult times.
I enjoyed Catching Faith, and while it didn’t really bring anything new to the table, it was still a fascinating film and would be great for any family to watch and discuss together.
This movie is appropriate for most ages with really one really glaring scene that stood out to me. One scene that is critical to the progression of the plot involves a party with a group of teenagers participating in underage drinking. We like to follow the Dove Foundation which approves this movie for ages 12+.
