COURAGEOUS is the fourth film from Sherwood Pictures, the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia and is directed by Alex Kendrick.
It’s the story of a group of police officers who, when tragedy strikes, realise their inadequacies when taking a role in their families. Together, they form an agreement to become better fathers and husbands. As you’ve guessed, all does not go smoothly and challenges await them yet they courageously confront them all.
The reviews of this film include the phrases, “top ten of my favourite movies” (User Reviews), “skilful blending of moving drama, subtle comedy and several impressive action sequences” (Hollywood Reporter). In our view, the film is exciting and moving, leaving the viewer with something to consider, occasional tears and most certainly uplifted.
