This film tells the story of recently widowed country music star Will Brown, played by Granger Smith, who pushed away his family, fame and faith after his wife’s death. It's his daughter and a talented horse trainer who show him strength, forgiveness and grace to live life again after wasting so much time trying to blame God for his loss.
And while the “Happens Like That” singer never set out to be an actor, Smith deeply connected with his character due to his own experience with grief in losing his 3-year-old son in a tragic drowning accident. Ever since then, Smith has been on a mission to minister to those who are hurting and in need of hope. In fact, he recently announced that his current tour would be his last as he is giving up music to go into full-time ministry.
The Kendrick brothers’ film “Lifemark” is inspired by the true story of David Scotton, an adopted child who, with the support of his parents, goes on a healing journey to meet his birth mother. The film celebrates the beauty of life, adoption and forgiveness and features an incredible cast who came together to create such a beautiful and impactful movie.
Kirk Cameron, who plays David’s adoptive father, got the idea for the film after seeing “I Lived on Parker Avenue,” a documentary based on the same story.
“I can’t believe this is a true story. We couldn’t have written the script as good as this. It’s going to just grab your heart, it grabbed ours. We know that it’s going to resonate with people all across the country,” Cameron said. “‘Lifemark’ is a story that’s full of heart and humor and action. People are going to watch this, and they’re going to leave with their hearts full.”
Running the Bases
“Running the Bases” tells the story of a small-town baseball coach who faces an uphill battle after uprooting his family to coach at a larger school. The film has been a hit with faith audiences, and even won this year’s MovieGuide Faith and Freedom Award for Movies thanks to its powerful Gospel message.
“At its core, ‘Running the Bases’ is a movie that is not only uplifting and can inspire hope and encouragement in people’s lives, but it is a movie that stands on the firm word of God, of truth and life in Christ,” the film’s star, Brett Varvel, said.
Varvel is a faith-film veteran, with numerous Pure Flix films to his name as both an actor and director. You can watch those films, along with “Running the Bases,” which is streaming exclusively on Pure Flix! Then go cast your vote over at K-LOVE!
