 Dove Family Films “Before the Border”

 On the verge of graduation, hardworking Sam (Khadijjah Mote) is conned into a chase to the Canadian border. Her odyssey goes viral after her spoiled competitor Tarquin (Delon de Metz) offers up a bounty for her captured notebook. She must separate ally from adversary as she and her waggish accomplice (writer/director Tom Fox Davies) trek closer to their goal.

“Before the Border” is an innovative and imaginative story about two adversaries who bet each other they can cross the border of Canada by using means only available in the 1800s. One of the intriguing themes of the movie focuses on a woman’s determination and struggles to realize her dream of becoming a lawyer. A bounty is put out on Samantha, and she flees with all her might, disguising herself in order to make it across.

This delightful movie makes it clear: dreams can be realized if a person can hang in there! Beautiful small-town scenery accentuates this film, well depicted when showing Samantha getting across the border via boat and train. This inspiring movie has earned our Dove Seal recommended for ages 12-plus!

“What If”

What If... tells the story of Ben Walker (Kevin Sorbo), who fifteen years ago left his college sweetheart (Kristy Swanson), and his calling to be a preacher, in order to pursue a business opportunity. Now with a high-paying executive gig, a trophy fiancé, and a new Mercedes, he hasn't considered a family nor felt the need to step foot in a church. But God has other plans. While on a thrill ride outside the city, his new car mysteriously breaks down, and he's visited by a tow truck driver named Mike (John Ratzenberger) who claims to be an angel sent to show Ben what his life would look like had he followed his true calling. Suddenly Ben wakes up in the middle of domestic chaos as his "wife" Wendy and daughters (including Disney Channel's Debby Ryan) are getting ready for church, where Ben is the new pastor. Before he can get back to his old life, Ben must first embrace this reality and discover the value of faith and family, and perhaps restore his love for those who were heartbroken fifteen years ago: Wendy...and God. In the tradition of "It's A Wonderful Life" and "The Family Man," What if... is a story of finding your true purpose in life.
