I am absolutely loving the number of high quality, faith-based options we are seeing on the big screen right now! I’ll admit that I could count the number of times I’d been to the movie theater on one hand in the past few years. That is starting to change for me and, based on the number of tickets being sold and shows added for movies like The Jesus Revolution and theatrical episodes of The Chosen, I’m not alone!
Angel Studios (the company behind The Chosen Series) has a great movie in theaters starting this weekend. His Only Son has already done well enough just in ticket presales that they are selling out some showings! Huge thanks to my sponsor, Angel Studios for providing me with an advanced screening of this fabulous movie.
Who stars in His Only Son?
I have to admit that I wasn’t familiar with any of the actors in His Only Son. The main characters are played by Nicolas Mouawad, Sara Seyed, Edaan Moskowitz and Daniel da Silva. Based on their superb acting in this film, I expect we will be seeing their names pop up again and again.
What is the plot of His Only Son?
His Only Son recounts one of the most controversial moments in the Old Testament—when Abraham was commanded by God to sacrifice his son Isaac on the mountain of Moriah. While traveling to the place of the sacrifice, alongside Isaac and two servants, Abraham is flooded with vivid memories from the years he and Sarah spent longing for the son they were promised—the son he must now lay upon the altar.
Is His Only Son a family film?
The film is rated PG-13 for thematic content and some violence. As with most movies, use your own judgment on what your child is able to comprehend and handle. The violence is nowhere near as graphic as what many kids watch on TV these days.
What did I think of His Only Son?
Personally, I really enjoy seeing the Bible brought to life like it is in this movie. It’s one thing to read the stories but it is a whole new experience to be drawn into the story and feel the emotions along with the characters. If you are familiar with the Bible story, you already know how it ends, but that doesn’t keep you from feeling the conflict and the pain right along with Abraham, Sarah and Isaac. And, just like with Southern Gospel, I am so incredibly impressed with the quality of the movie – both the acting and the set/scenery. I am planning on seeing it again in the theater just to have the “big screen” experience!
It sounds like many theaters will be adding extra showings, but grab your tickets now just in case yours doesn’t!
