The Way Home DVD


Read the Back:
An Inspiring True Story

Dean Cain (“Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman”) stars as Randy Simpkins, a husband and father torn between the demands of his job and commitment to his family. Asked by his wife Christal to watch their two-year-old son Joe for a few minutes, Randy is distracted by work and Joe disappears. Racked by guilt, Randy joins Christal in a desperate search for their missing son alongside hundreds of others from their Church and community. Randy and Christal’s strained marriage must now weather the ultimate test – the potential loss of a child. THE WAY HOME is the story of Randy’s powerful spiritual journey back to love, faith and a Godly understanding of what must always take first priority in a man’s life – his family.

My Thoughts:
Remember to have a box of tissues handy when watching this film. I found myself sobbing multiple times. If you’ve ever lost your child, even for 5 minutes, you can relate to the panic and fear that Randy and Christal must’ve been feeling when they discovered that little Joe was missing. As a mother of a two and a half year old, I found this movie EXTREMELY intense. I could just picture myself losing my little girl and it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time! This is a great movie to watch on a girls’ night out or possibly when you just need a good cry, but unless you have a softie of a husband like I do, you probably won’t be able to convince him to watch it with you. My favorite part of this movie was the way the people of the church and the community came together. Randy’s mother phoned her pastor and a prayer phone chain was started. They had SO many helpers come out. What an amazing testimony to the power of God. Also, it got really gritty when Randy prays out to God in the forest. The rawness of emotion was very gripping. I highly recommend picking up a copy of this film.

This review was made possible because I received a copy of this DVD from Thomas Nelson Publishers.
