Reviewer:

Synopsis:
Faith (Freeman) and Norman (Benymon), a soon-to-be-married couple facing a potentially life-altering dilemma. With just two weeks to go before their wedding, Faith still hasn't told her fiancé about her chronic illness. As the stress of the looming wedding brings on a few painful episodes can the couple overcome their fears and embrace love, with all the sacrifice that entails, and move forward with their plans?

Dove Worldview:
There are still people in the world that will marry for love...in sickness and in health. This movie features really good actors, some funny lines, and a good story. A former pastor's two grown daughters, Faith and Hope, talk about Faith's upcoming marriage to Norman. Unfortunately, although Faith loves Norman very much and vice versa, she is battling Sickle Cell Anemia and is afraid she will push him away if she tells him. Her previous boyfriend left her after learning she had the disease. Norman soon learns the truth and is upset with Faith for not having more confidence in him.

Faith and Hope's father, Calvin, has met a woman he likes but he is finding it difficult to let go of his wife, Anita, that died herself from Sickle Cell Anemia. Despite the serious topic there are laughs to spare in this movie and a real message, that love remains love...in sickness and in health. We are more than happy to award this movie our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for 12 and over. The messages in this film are more geared toward older kids and adults but the content is pretty wholesome overall.

Rating Descriptions

Sex: Kissing by a couple; there's a hint an engaged couple had slept together but they intend to be married before they start a family.
Language: G/OMG-4; Butt-2
Violence: None
Drugs: Woman takes prescription pills; a reference to beer, wine and liquor.
Nudity: Cleavage.
Other: Tension between two sisters; a discussion about marriage and one character makes it clear that it is more than just a piece of paper and that the piece of paper stands for something. While the content of this film is wholesome, we feel that the mature themes discussed are more appropriate for an older audience.
