What makes a good movie?

I must admit, I'm a little picky when it comes to movies. I need a good story that will draw me and hold my attention, but I also want to see movies with good messages too. 

I was recently given the oppurtunity to check out one such movie: Southern Gospel- a powerful true story of redemption starring starring four-time Emmy nominee Max Ehrich, Katelyn Nacon (The Walking Dead), Emma Myers (Netflix's Wednesday) and J. Alphonse Nicholson (P. Valley and Just Mercy). Check it out:

Synopsis: Samuel Allen, a 1960's rockstar, finds himself in jail after struggling with years of anger and blame toward organized religion that has led him down a road of rebellion. In a moment of divine intervention, the judge dismisses drug charges against him under the pretense that Samuel speaks to local schools and churches about the dangers of drugs. Given a second chance, he follows in his father's footsteps to become a preacher, overcoming the influence of a powerful church leader with a personal vendetta against his family. SOUTHERN GOSPEL is the story of a man overcoming brokenness and never surrendering the dream on his journey to find the gospel… Southern Gospel.

This was such a fantastic movie... though perhaps not quite what some people might expect from a faith based movie. It is rated PG-13 for mature thematic content, drug use, some violent content, suicide, and language. Yes, this is far from the squeaky clean stories that we often expect from a Christian movie and tackles some very difficult topics without sugar coating them. While I realize that this won't be everyone's cup of tea, I actually feel like that's very important for the message of this movie... a message that tells us that no matter how far we have strayed, we can always come back to God. It was a movie that was not always easy to watch because of those subjects, but a message that I think is so important. The fact that this was based on a true story made me appreciate what these characters went through and what they accomplished all that more remarkable. While this may not be one to watch with a younger audience, it is one that will offer a great message for adults and perhaps older teens too.
