Chasing Grace SYNOPSIS
A tragic accident threatens to destroy a pastor’s family and sets into motion a complex betrayal between two brothers, while exposing secrets no one wants to face.
Pastor Jonathan Matheson lives in a world of black and white, yet finds a way to navigate the “grey in-between” to work to his advantage, while facing one of the most tragic moments of his life. Set in small-town America and woven inside a tale of redemption, “Chasing Grace” is a story of how one family takes on the burden of guilt in order to make sense of their loss. While pointing the finger of blame at his brother, Pastor Jonathan also chooses to hide from the truth while trying to escape his own personal demons. “Chasing Grace” is loosely based upon true events and provides a powerful story about the redeeming power of forgiveness.
A movie about family, loss, forgiveness and redemption. Chasing Grace forces us to turn toward our faith as a family struggles to find a new "normal" as they go move on after losing their daughter.
Pastor Jonathan Matheson and his family have lost their little Grace due to the negligence of a family member. With the family falling apart the Pastor is hit with a wave of anger and vengeance.
What seemed like a model community family is really quite dysfunctional behind the scenes which I think is something everyone can relate to.
The movie touches on alcoholism, violence, guns, and even shady cops but in the end the message is important. My favorite character was "Professor" the middle child. He was the only one who seemed to have it together. The voice of reason.
This is not your typical preachy movie about forgiveness. I think some will be surprised at some of the directions the movie takes you however the final message is about forgiveness of others and forgiveness of ourselves.
All in all the actors did a decent job over all.
