God Bless the Broken Road

First slide

 

Evangelical drama in which an Afghan War widow (Lindsay Pulsipher) and her young daughter (Makenzie Moss) both benefit from the upbeat presence in their lives of a racecar driver (Andrew W. Walker). As Mom struggles to regain her faith and pay the bills, the speedster grapples with his inability to slow down on the curves. Honorable but rather insipid, director and co-writer Harold Cronk's film, inspired by a country music song, is suitable for a wide audience. How much of an impression it will leave on viewers of any age is another question.

 

Watch out for: Mature themes and stylized combat violence.

 

Rated: A-II, adults and adolescents; MPAA: PG
