Alexa, the mother, is a totally stressed out mom trying to look perfect at everything she does. Everything does look perfect, but it's all unraveling. She's unraveling.

Synopsis: John and Alexa Taylor appear to have the perfect life – they’re the envy of all the parents in town. Their son Beau is the high school football star and their daughter Ravyn is a straight-A student. But when Beau is caught drinking alcohol, his place on the team and his bright future are on the line. With the football season at stake and the judgmental community turning their backs on them, every member of the Taylor family is at a crossroads. Now, they must find the strength from one another, and the spiritual courage from within, to prove that faith and family is the only score that really matters.
Inspired by the real life experiences of his co-writer, Christian Counsellor, Andrea M. Polnaszek, John K.D. Graham directs a powerful film about one family’s journey toward a true relationship with God and each other, despite the pressures of the community to keep on with the façade. It will be available on DVD, Digital HD, and On Demand this August.
My Family's Thoughts
- "It wasn't that bad. I thought this was a football movie. It has football in it, but it wasn't a football movie. It had a good message. It wasn't as bad as my family says it is." Amy, 13
- "I kept waiting for the show to start. I was bored. The acting was mediocre except the coach." Michael, 15
- "The movie was dull and uninteresting. It had a good message at the end, but it wasn't played up as well as it should have been; so the point was very weak." Emily, 17
- "The movie ended up with a good message. The quality of the movie was good, but until about the second half, I was still waiting for the movie to start." Lowell, the dad
- One thing I liked is that it showed how women have a tendency to try to look good in front of each other and not to be real with each other. That makes for shallow relationships. Worse, it makes for loneliness as we think we're the only ones with problems.
- It's blatantly Christian. That's something we need a lot more of in the movies.
- Doing the right thing is sometimes hard. This movie exemplifies that well.
- The beginning was weak and a bit ambiguous. We were halfway into the movie before I really had a good idea what was going on.
- I thought this was a football movie and invited my family to watch a football movie with me. So, we were expecting more action and less drama. If we had watched this movie with the idea that it was about a family going through hard times, we might have enjoyed it more. I give it 3 stars.
