Healed by Grace
Riley Adams is a Christian girl who gives a presentation on the Great Flood in her college class where she is a sophomore. That is, "Noah's flood", something which causes a few eye rolls but the class is used to the "Bible thumper" who, actually, is a very nice girl and not a thumper of Bibles at all. On the other hand, Aleah doesn't seem like a nice person at all. She makes fun of Riley for her beliefs and is her main competition in the dance class they both have a passion for.
Riley goes very far toward realizing her dream but then a tragic event changes the course of her life and she learns to trust God to find out what path she should take. It turns out to be a surprising one but one which opens up many opportunities for her. This movie demonstrates very well that every cloud has a silver lining and that former foes can indeed become friends. The movie features humor too such as when a trainer wears a girl's flip flops so she can wear his boots to ride a horse. The music is terrific too, especially a song which features the lyrics, "Jimmy Stewart really got it right, it's a wonderful life." Natalie Weese is terrific as Riley as is the rest of the cast. The director, David Matthew Weese, does a wonderful job in giving the viewer an interesting story with realistic characters. This one is not to be missed!
