The Film: If you are Christian this a film that may renew your faith and if you agnostic you might find real hope. War Room is a faith based film by the successful producer, the Kendrick brothers. This dynamic duo have created small budget films with the hope of providing a bigger picture for people. War Room is the next in a series films including Fireproof, Facing the Giants or Courageous by the Kendrick brothers.
War Room on a basic level is about a couple with marital problems but when they both dig deeper they find that they are more than war with each other. Prayer is the the much needed weapon to save their lives. This is a very touching film. I witnessed people pull out tissue and wipe their eyes. It is a great family film. The movie features as the lead actress, Priscilla Shirer Christian Inspirational teacher/speaker. How does she fair in the acting departing? She does pretty well for her first crack at this. Having seen the movie twice, I can recognize the lack of range in expression at times. Nevertheless, the movie doesn’t suffer for it.- Review by Crystal A. Johnson
The Food: Well, this film provides us with two great options. When in theaters, make sure you go to a coffee house or an ice cream shop because you may find yourself with plenty to talk about.
