ABOUT THE FILM:
MY BROTHER'S KEEPER is an intense, yet hope-filled, Christian film that shows the reality of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and how it can affect returning war veterans. It features T.C. Stallings (War Room), Keshia Knight Pulliam (The Cosby Show), Joey Lawrence (Melissa & Joey), and Robert Ri’chard (One on One).
MY THOUGHTS:The story-line was decent and kept my interest. The acting was good also - not a "B" movie. It gave a good presentation of how faith in God can help us through our difficulties, specifically PTSD. Faith in God does not make the PTSD go away, but it gives us hope and can provide healing to our souls.
The film also shows how some people, including Christians, can get confused about God's love. They think God doesn't love them, or care about them, because He doesn't stop "bad things" from happening to them. In the film, the main character was ready to end his life because he had the wrong impression about God's love. But, God doesn't always give us what we want in life. He doesn't keep "bad things" from happening to good people. What He does do is provide Salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ, and gives hope where there is no hope. That is the greatest love there is! He also gives strength in our difficult days, and promises to never leave us alone.
THINGS TO NOTE: (1) Salvation was explained with what appeared to be a Baptismal Regeneration view. (2) The film includes guns, shootings (during combat, and also during a drive-by shooting), a suicidal attempt with a gun, and intense yelling scenes. (3) The shooting scenes are not graphic, but could be a bit too intense for younger children.
Go see MY BROTHER’S KEEPER when it comes out in theaters on March 19th, or find a church that is hosting it. You can host the film at your church through the FAITH CONTENT NETWORK.
