I’ve been a fan of the Kendrick Brothers Production movies since I watched Fireproof. I’m a lover of the movie War Room! I’m pleased to have the chance to tell you about their new movie OVERCOMER that hits theaters on August 23, 2019, thanks to our partnership with Flyby Promotions.
Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team’s state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant in town suddenly shuts down and hundreds of families begin moving away, John must come to grips with the challenges facing his family and his team. Urged by the school’s principal to fill-in and coach a sport he doesn’t know or like, John is frustrated and questioning his worth … until he crosses paths with a student struggling with her own journey.
Filled with a powerful mix of faith, a twist of humor, and a ton of heart, the Kendrick Brothers return to theaters with OVERCOMER, their newest feature following FACING THE GIANTS, FIREPROOF, COURAGEOUS, and the #1 box- office hit, WAR ROOM. The inspiring family film stars Alex Kendrick, Priscilla Shirer, Shari Rigby, Cameron Arnett, and introduces Aryn Wright-Thompson. Opening nationwide on August 23, OVERCOMER dares to leave you filled with hope, inspired to dream, and asks the question: what do you allow to define you?
Why Watch It?
OVERCOMER is a movie that is designed to help us to see our true identity and how God has a plan for us. I feel that is something that many of us struggle with knowing in our life. I know I’m here for a reason because otherwise, I know God would have let me die in 2006. I still haven’t fully figured out what my main purpose is exactly. However, I do know I’m getting closer to the answer daily.
“Cross country is a very difficult sport. From the time you start, you do not stop or pause until you cross the finish line. And in many regards, that’s like our life; that’s our journey of faith.”
I can clearly see that this movie is going to pull on my heartstrings as much as War Room did while I was watching it. My kids were moved watching the other Kendrick Brothers’ movies too. I’m eager to be able to take them to see this family-friendly movie this weekend.
