From time to time, I have the opportunity to review a new faith movie release. This one, Healed by Grace 2, is the sequel to Healed by Grace. To be honest, it’s not the best production level. But, the heart and message is there. [Note: don’t miss the ticket giveaway below]
Do you have the capacity to forgive a hurtful wrong?
Truth is, forgiveness helps us as much if not more than the one who caused the hurt. And, beautiful things can happen when forgiveness is extended. Our faith is centered around it and this movie addresses it.
As daughter Jesse is approaching her 15th birthday, she’s made it clear that all she wants is a horse — a painful revelation to mother Brandy as she’s left that past behind (or so she thought) with a hurtful history with her estranged father Gauff that put rodeo before family. To complicate things, Brandy just received a terrifying cancer diagnosis, but hides it from her daughter. Enter Jesse’s father who puts himself between a rock and a hard place as he tries to satisfy Jesse’s passion for horses and rig a potential reconciliation between Brandy and her father. So, he sets up a training summer camp at his father-in-law’s facility. It creates a humorous awkwardness for the father, and at the same time, opens up the past once again for Brandy, forcing her to confront her father and decide whether to extend the forgiveness Gauff is looking for.
A few things bothered me in this movie: 1) the Lord’s name in vain with two OMGs casually thrown out and 2) a mock “making out” session in the ending outtakes. They should have known better and to me disqualifies it for an entire family viewing.
