Movie trailer & more info: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqLOEUIYi0I
It’s 1946 and Rose Cornell, a resolute young woman, struggles with her faith while searching for answers after a series of painful events. She has been abandoned by her mother, her brother is addicted to illegal gambling, and a near-tragic crash has taken away her favourite pastime of flying airplanes. As Rose reaches the point of turning her back on her faith, will an unlikely source lead her to the goodness of God? Will she find his love, faithfulness, and restoration? Follow Rose’s journey to find an answer to the age-old question, “God, if you’re in control, why do bad things happen?”
Rose has turned her back on God because of the things that have happened in her family. Her brother Seth has skipped town, leaving those left behind to deal with his bad choices.
When bad things happen, many people ask, “why does God let these things happen?” This story shows how it is our choices that create the terrible situations. The Lord is always speaking; some people listen, some don’t, and some only hear what they want to hear. This is truly a wholesome family movie about God’s love and how people need to “ride on the wings of His word and the wind of His spirit.” It is inspirational to learn how to not blame God, since He is not trying to teach us a lesson when things go wrong. He is always there and speaking to us, all we have to do is listen.
We award this movie with the Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12+.

16VSL – NOT RECOMMENDED FOR FAMILIES
A titan of industry is sent to prison after she’s caught for insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America’s latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget.
The Boss stars Melissa McCarthy as Michelle Darnell, a hard-nosed businesswoman convicted of insider trading. When she is released several months later, Michelle discovers the federal government has taken all her assets. She throws herself on the mercy of her long-suffering assistant, Claire. Claire lets Michelle live with her and her daughter, Rachel, for a while. Michelle gets a new lease on life bonding with the two females. More comedy ensues when Michelle convinces Claire and Rachel to start a big business using the tasty chocolate brownies Claire bakes for Rachel’s scout troop.
The Boss has a consistently fresh and creative point of view, a well-drawn three-dimensional character in McCarthy’s Michelle, and many belly laughs. Sadly, media-wise viewers will find the frequent foul language and some distasteful, lewd comical references to be unacceptable. Especially since the movie includes solid moral, redemptive elements. For example, the opening has a positive portrayal of a kindly Catholic nun. Also, the rest of the movie includes strong pro-family, pro-capitalist redemptive values. The Boss could have been a much more family-friendly, acceptable movie without the foul, lewd elements. — www.movieguide.org
