There’s nothing quite like snuggling up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and watching a good movie with family or friends. But sometimes it’s hard to find something that fits for the whole family; a movie or show that offers clean language, is not overly sexualized, and has a positive message. Enter FishFlix – an online Christian movie store that offers a huge selection of entertainment movies, documentaries, educational films, biographies, tv shows, kids movies and so much more! I recently had an opportunity to review a DVD, A Place in the Heart, from FishFlix’s massive online collection and thoroughly enjoyed it!
A brief summary from FishFlix:
In A Place in the Heart, Nathan Hanighan must face heartbreaking loss and broken trust as he comes home in an effort to restart his life. Intending to ask his girlfriend to marry him, he finds that she has broken up with him, and is now in a relationship with his very best friend. Consumed with hatred and rage, he leaves and heads back to his hometown. When he arrives, however, he finds that his room has been given away to a woman by the name of Miranda, who Nathan is instantly taken with. Looking for a job, Nathan is able to get a position at the local high school as the assistant basketball coach.
Here he continues to develop a relationship with Miranda and excels at coaching the basketball team. He must learn to overcome his feelings of hatred and anger and learn to forgive his best friend and former girlfriend. With the help of his family, Miranda, and God he must learn how to change his heart and his attitude and restart his life. Navigating the twists and turns that life throws at him, Nathan slowly learns to overcome and thrive in his new environment. With Miranda entertaining notions of a relationship with Nathan as well, he soon begins to find new love and hope for the future.
I was pleasantly impressed with A Place in the Heart. I found the story line very intriguing, with Nathan having to return back to his hometown after a heart-breaking departure in the first place. Watching him confront his past and work through his problems and feelings of hatred and anger, while opening himself up to new relationships was encouraging to see. Throw in all the sports references and action-packed basketball games definitely made this movie fast-paced.
I was also really impressed with FishFlix’s service. I ordered my movie and two days later it showed up in my mailbox. I love the fast service they offer! The DVD box was in great condition, still wrapped in plastic, and the DVD itself arrived in perfect condition, no scratches or anything. Looking over their selection, the movies and shows are very reasonably priced and FishFlix.com even offers a Bargain section! I love a good bargain! If you’re looking for some great, clean, and fun movies for your next movie night, I highly recommend FishFlix.com!
