This weekend I watched The Way Home starring Dean Cain. It's the true story of a family who is preparing to go on vacation when something awful happens. Dean stars as the dad, Randy Simpkins, who is too wrapped up in his work to take time with his family like he should.
Randy's wife, Christal, asks him to put their two year old in his car seat so they can finish loading the van. Instead, he lets him play in the driveway while he goes back inside for a few minutes. They live out in the country, so Randy felt little Joe would be safe riding his tricycle around.
When he comes back outside, the trike is on its side and Joe is nowhere to be found. Randy and his wife look all around for Joe, both inside and out, and can't find him. After checking everywhere, they start getting really worried and realize they need help and call 911.
This is a very emotional movie. As you watch everyone search for Joe, Randy does some soul-searching of his own. The family's faith is tested with each hour that passes. Will they find Joe, will he be okay?
The Way home is a Christian movie without being too preachy. Faith is shown more often than spoken. Best of all, it's family friendly!
I received The Way Home from Book Sneeze in exchange for a review.
