Review: A Remarkable Movie... This is Our Time DVD


About This Is Our Time
The movie tells the interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and Alé (Erin Bethea), who marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb), who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God.
“What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”
My thoughts:
This is Our Time  is a remarkable movie.  As the credits rolled down the screen, I just sat there, quiet and thoughtful.  I remember the conquer the world, I can do anything elation of college graduation.  This story portrayed a gamut of emotions and experiences young adults can face after the final exams are history.  This is Our Time is so relevent, not only to young adults, but to older adults, too.  There are many of us who feel like life has passed us by, or we should be changing the world.  Instead, we're just doing our everyday thing.  God has purpose for us, in us, and through us.  I've reviewed many movies, but this one really stands out.  It's not a feel good movie, it's a deep thought movie.  I think it is well worth your time and attention.

I watched this with my family.  If you're concerned about the leprosy, it is not shown during the movie.  It is safe to watch with your family.  There is a three minute video at the end that explains the ministry of Embrace a Village in IndiaIt does show people with leprosy that could be disturbing to young children.

My family's thoughts:
"It is a wow faith movie, very spiritually intense.  I really think everyone should watch it."  ~ Amy, 11 years old

"It was very realistic, more like real life than a movie." ~ Michael, 13 years old

"Inspiring, I've never cried so much at a movie." ~ Emily,  15 years old

"It's not our time, it's His.  It's not about what we do, it's about what He's called us to be."  ~ Lowell, the papa.
Please enjoy this trailer.

  1. This looks like a great movie. Last night we watched Island of Grace on Netflix. It was not one of our favorites. We enjoy all of the Sherwood Pictures.
