All of us have had struggles and trials, and many of us have been effected by cancer. The movie, Faith Under Fire, is a depiction of what real life is like and how everyone doesn’t always get their fairy-tale ending.
About the Movie:
After an exhausting night of saving a little girl from a raging house fire, Fireman Tom Hatcher is at the end of his rope. He couldn’t save his wife from cancer – and worse yet – his six-year-old daughter, Tiffany, is now facing the same possible fate. When he finds himself in a cold jail cell after punching a pastor out of frustration with a seemingly absent God, Tom begins to reflect on his downward spiral into despair. But with the help and persistent friendship of the very man he attacked, Tom is challenged to face his grief and embrace faith in the darkest hour of his life.
We watched this movie with my 14 year old son, and it’s geared toward ages 12+. Given the issues addressed (i.e. cancer, death), I definitely agree on the age recommendation.
Although this was a good movie to watch, personally, I feel this needs a clear “trigger warning”, and wouldn’t recommend it if you’re currently walking through a cancer trial. Fortunately my husband’s trial is behind us currently, but I don’t think this would have been a movie I would have wanted to watch during the hard months.
I d like that the movie shows that even when things don’t turn out well, God is still in control and drawing us closer to Him.
