UPSIDE: Review & Giveaway

Have you ever been journeying down a path in your life that you were certain you had completely figured out, only to find out that nothing was at all what it once seemed?  I know I have... many, many times.  Without a new perspective to see my situation, I would remain stuck, wishing things were better.  

A few days ago, I had the opportunity to view an inspiring film that challenges my perspective and beliefs during those times when life throws twists and turns in my path.  The film is called Upside, and it was released to Christian retailers today by Provident Films, the company who brought to us "Fireproof" and "Facing the Giants."  This coming of age story about faith and romance is an encouraging reminder that when life gets you down, there's always an upside. 

I loved that this movie was entertaining, motivational, and well-crafted. It held my attention from the very beginning and kept my interest to the last frame.  This is a God-honoring film that I plan to recommend to other families and church groups for a long time to come.

Check out the movie overview and trailer below:

UPSIDE:  It's all how you look at it...
High school senior Solomon White seemingly has everything going for him: great athlete, good-looking girlfriend, nice car, scholarship offers, bright future.

But things aren't always as they appear.

When a devastating head injury flips his vision—and his world—upside down, Soli is left not knowing what normal looks like anymore. His challenges grow deeper when he starts falling for Wren, a believer who's been blind since birth.

When you're facing life's twists and turns, it's important to know what you believe. This fresh story of faith, romance, and coming of age is an inspiring reminder that when life gets you down, there's always an UPSIDE.
