Storyline

"Golden boy" Kurt Kuykendall (Jason Burkey) has it all: good looks, a spot on his college basketball team, and hopes for playing in the Olympics. But behind the closed doors of his Bethesda, Maryland home, Kurt's life is far from perfect. An alcoholic mother (Nancy Fondriest), a power hungry father (Michael Landers), and a family tragedy make this suburban dream home a living nightmare. When Kurt gets cut at the end of his freshman basketball season, all that he's worked for crumbles. But this is far from the final word on Kurt's future. Buoyed by friends (Robby Stone, Danny Cornett, Chelsie Casagrande) and his new found faith in God, Kurt discovers courage and his true calling. Written by 1Voice Films

Entertaining and inspiring
25 May 2013 | by cortneymatz1See all my reviews

What a cool story. This is a sweet and uplifting illustration of the power of God to redeem brokenness and ordain adventure beyond what we could imagine for ourselves.

I was drawn to this movie for the soccer element and the likability of the characters, but was pleasantly surprised by how funny and romantic it was. I can relate to Kurt's ambition and drive, as well as his frustration that all the hard work doesn't always pay off the way it should.

Some viewers may be cautioned that there is some use of alcohol - much of the story takes place on a college campus, after all. And Kurt's mother descends into some pretty intense alcoholism. It certainly isn't extreme by movie standards, but for younger kids it could be too much. I mention it since For The Glory's lack of MPAA rating and Christian theme might lead families to wonder if it's suitable. I think it definitely is, but it depends on your kids and their sensitivities.

I recommend For The Glory. It's a fun watch and you might actually find it speaks to your own life.
