Woodlawn: A Movie with a Message

woodlawn-web (1)

If you have been a movie viewer for any length of time, you have figured out by now that each movie conveys a message. Typically, this message is intentionally and intricately woven throughout the dialogue, leaving the audience with a clear understanding of the writer’s intent.

Often, audiences who prefer movies positive messages are left extremely disappointed with the films typically shown at the neighborhood theater. (Just take a quick look at your local marquee when you get a chance.) That’s why those who make and support entertainment that communicates faith and family values are so vitally important to you and to Pure Flix.

On May 20th, a movie that modeled the power of faith and family on the big screen this past fall will be available for streaming at pureflix.com. Woodlawn, based on true events, tells the inspirational story of Tony Nathan (played by Caleb Castille), his football coach (Nic Bishop), a Jesus Movement convert (Sean Austin), his tight-knit family and his fractured community.

And looking at them Jesus said to them,“With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 (NASB)

Set in Birmingham, Alabama in the 1970’s at the height of racial tensions, this movie demonstrates what happens “when God shows up”, which is only possible when hearts are surrendered to Him. Not only do we watch great football scenes, we watch lives transformed, which impacts the local high school, the local community, and captivates an entire state.

In these times of discord and division, Woodlawn relays a message of hope and unity. And there’s not just one positive message, there are positive messages interwoven throughout the story as it unfolds.

If you are searching for a movie with a message that inspires and uplifts, a movie that is relevant in the times we live, and a movie that illustrates the extraordinary power of God in the lives of ordinary people, look no further than Woodlawn. And make sure to watch it with your teens and tweens!
