Abel's Field is a winner of a movie. It's a film that will make you think and laugh and boy did it make me cry. The main character, Seth McArdle, is a bit of a modern day Job. And Abel, well, I'll let you decide which biblical character he is at the end of the movie.:) (Don't want to list an spoilers here!) Seth carries the weight of the world on his shoulders while attending high school, working 2 (soon to be 3) jobs all the while raising his twin 7 year old sisters. Their mother has passed away and their Dad is nowhere to be found. The football team bullies him daily, his home is soon to be sold in a public auction, and he's tempted to commit a crime out of desperation. Seth feels that God no longer cares about him. So many of us have been there. But all is not lost...
Every day most of us get up and try to accomplish everything by ourselves. At what point do you call out to God for help? Abel's Field has heart, and you'll find yourself smiling quite a bit through the tears. I watched it with my 15 year old daughter and we both agreed that it was a great movie. There's action, drama, even a touch of romance. There's also prayer (rarely seen in movies today) and gut wrenching moments of desperation. Sometimes God helps us in the most unexpected ways. And that's all I'm going to say except- you're going to want to watch this movie.:)
About Abel's Field
Left motherless by tragedy and abandoned by his father, high school senior Seth McArdle (Samuel Davis) faces enormous pressure as he strives to support his little sisters. At school, he endures the daily bullying of the football team. But fighting back only finds him singled out for punishment and assigned to an after-school work detail under the supervision of the reserved groundskeeper, Abel (SOUL SURFER’S Kevin Sorbo). Much to his surprise, Seth discovers that Abel may be the only one who truly understands his struggles. As dark times lure Seth toward desperate measures, the reluctant Abel may be the one person who can point him back toward the light.
