Friday Family Movie Saint Street *Review

 Written, directed, and produced by Rob Diamond, Saint Street follows the life of Percy, a good man who becomes focused on making money rather than spending time with his family. On Christmas Eve, he breaks yet another promise to his wife and children to leave work early and misses the annual Christmas party. After repeated warnings to change his ways, Percy suffers a serious car accident that causes him to lose everything, including his family, job, and the use of his legs.

Confined to a wheelchair and homeless, Percy is humbled into living with misfits in the gritty world of Saint Street. Yet, godly examples surface in the most unlikely places, showing Percy that there might be a light at the end of the tunnel in this traditional Christmas story of faith, hope, and redemption.

Dove Worldview:

This is a movie that offers hope to those who are going through rough times. A man named Percy (Mark Webb) is a workaholic. He doesn't heed a man named J.C.'s warning about not driving with his family at night after working a long day. An accident occurs that turns Percy's world upside down.
Percy winds up in a wheel chair and losing a lot of things which were important to him. Down and out, he comes across some homeless friends who reach out to him, and even reach out to one another with gifts given freely to each other, made possible by the generosity of others.
There is a surprise ending with a lot of neat things between the beginning and conclusion of the film. The themes of the movie include getting second chances, forgiveness, and making it a priority to spend quality family time. We are pleased to award this movie our "Dove Family-Approved" Seal for ages twelve plus. Give this one a watch and it will inspire you to appreciate what you have.
