Like Arrows Movie Review & Information
It is not often that a movie speaks directly to my heart and provides a near mirror reflection of my own life’s experiences. However, when I sat down to watch Like Arrows with my husband, I quickly found myself drawn to the characters in the film because it was as if they were telling everyone about my parenting pitfalls and the pitfalls, my own parents faced.
Like Arrows tells the story of Charlie and Alice over the course of their 50 year marriage journey. We are given a peak into their lives from engagement to their 50 year wedding anniversary. Charlie and Alice begin to lose relationships with each of their children as work and realities of everyday life consume their time. “Like Arrows” focuses on the power of a family to shape the next generation as they turn to their faith after all else has failed.
When conflict, rebellion, and resentment overwhelm their family, Charlie and Alice are forced to rethink their parenting strategy. In the process, they realize how critical intentionality and focus are when shaping and molding young lives. FamilyLife’s first feature film explores the challenges and joys that come with raising children.
Through a journey that unfolds over 50 years, Charlie and Alice discover the unmistakable power of family. Together, they learn that knowing and living by God’s Word is what brings transformation and hope to any family.
