THE WAY HOME (DVD)
The Simpkins are about to leave on vacation. Christal is a little frustrated with her husband, Randy, because he is distracted by work. Christal asks Randy to put their two-year-old son, Joe, in his car seat while she closed up the house. Randy knowing that Joe would be cooped up in the car for along time decides to let him continue to ride his bike around while he grabbed the last minute items. While in the house he gets distracted by checking emails. When Randy and Christal finally return to the car, little Joe is no where to be found. How far can a two-year-old get anyway? After an exhaustive search themselves, they call on friends and relatives and finally Randy makes the dreaded 911 call. How will this family make it through this crisis?
I thought the movie was great! Dean Cain and Lori Beth Edgeman do a fine job in their lead roles. What an inspiring true story. One thing I really appreciated about this DVD was the "special features" portion. I loved hearing Randy and Christal tell their story in their own words. As well as the others who were involved. It was an inspiration to hear how God used that event to change hearts, especially Randy's. It was awesome to see how the community banded together to find Joe and give support to the family. Praying them through it. I think the message in this movie is a very timely one. I would highly recommend The Way Home. A thank you goes to Booksneeze for providing me with this complimentary DVD for my review!
