Now, I enjoy watching a good movie, but what I consider a really good movie doesn't always line up with the opinions of others. I'm all about a little drama, but I prefer a happy ending. I also don't want to watch anything with language or situations that make me cringe. There's a weird feeling I get in my spirit when I happen upon those things, so I'm always on the lookout for movies to watch that bring glory and honor to GOD. I like a little romance as much as the next girl, but I especially like it when the romantic situations point out the beauty of GOD's plan and design for love. These are the movies that I want to see and to share with my children. I want to fill my life with the things of the WORD and not the things of the world. Princess Cut meets all of these expectations -- and more.
Princess Cut tells the story of a farm girl named Grace who (like many 20-something year-old young ladies) dreams of the day she will have a beautiful diamond ring slipped on her finger by her knight in shining armor. As so often is the case, unfortunately for Grace, her original knight wears tarnished armor. Her bitter disappointment leads her looking for love when all along GOD had the perfect love waiting patiently nearby. With parents who support her and gently remind her of the perfect love of the FATHER, Grace learns to wait for happiness to seek her out. The beauty of Princess Cut is that the story of GOD's redemptive love is woven throughout. There is drama and intrigue, romance and love -- but there is absolutely nothing that a family can't sit down and watch together. That's what makes this film a winner for my family.
When I first turned the DVD on my children (ages 16, 18, 23) were scattered about -- within listening range -- but were not watching the movie beside me because, you remember, I was folding clothes. I knew they were actually listening, though, when one daughter asked, "Is this some kind of feel-good channel movie that you are watching?" I told her no and kept right on folding. A few minutes later, she asked, "Hey, wait -- is this a faith-based film?" I simply smiled, kept on folding, and watched as they kids migrated to the living room to see what happened to Grace. In the end, we were all delighted to be reminded of just how much love the FATHER has for us all. Princess Cut is a well-done, heartfelt movie and we recommend that you watch it, too. There's enough action to keep even teenage boys interested and enough romance to keep a 16-year-old girl smiling. It has a little bit of everything needed to entertain a family.
