I have had the pleasure of having my movie review also posted on the online magazine Pursue.
Maybe if Jake was a better friend, Roger wouldn't have killed himself. Jake Taylor's near-perfect life is shocked by the suicide of his childhood best friend. A million thoughts swirling in his head, Jake doesn't feel that being the basketball star with the beautiful girlfriend is as fulfilling anymore. What if he gave Christianity a chance? What if he made his life about something more than just himself?
To Save A Life (trailer) has an amazing script and incredible acting. It deals with topics many Christian movies shy away from: suicide, sex, cutting, and family pressure. It discusses them in an amazingly Christian way that portrays both the reality of these things and the reality of the God who helps one overcome it all.
"At some point you got to ask yourself, 'What do you want your life to be about?'" -To Save a Life
I do not recommend this movie for anyone under 15. But if you're older, this movie can you remind you of truths you'd like to forget and inspire you to do something about them.
