In a society where finding quality wholesome family entertainment is becoming harder and harder to find, it’s nice to know that big companies like Netflix are still making sure it’s easy to still find them on their networks. This past weekend Delbert and I finally had a chance to have some much-needed one on one time, and we usually find something we can watch together so he can get some cuddle time in. We went on Netflix and found a gem of a movie. The movie is called Forever Strong.
Forever Strong is about a teenage boy who happens to be the son of a Rugby Coach from his school. He’s the Rugby’s main star and made to feel like without him the team is nothing. He also drove drunk and got in a car accident and hurt his girlfriend up pretty badly. The judge sentenced him to attend a reform school.
While at the reform school, he got the chance to play on an opposing Rugby team with his father’s rival. While playing for this team, this young man learns a new way of playing the game. He also learns how to live his life in a totally different manner. This coach teaches his team how to grow up to be respectable men on and off the playing field. It is his mission to raise “strong men.”
This movie is one of those movies that you can really appreciate while you’re watching it. However, it sticks with you even long after you watch it. It’s more motivational than any speech I’ve ever seen. It would be a perfect movie to show to middle/high school students during a group get together. It’s an engaging sports movie full of practical life lessons worth hanging on to.
It has 312 five star reviews on Amazon. I’m about to add to it because it’s one of those movies that really should be heard about more often. If you have Netflix, I’d run to go watch Forever Strong with your family. If you don’t have it you can buy Forever Strong off of Amazon, and I guarantee it’s worth every penny you spend to buy it.
Have you heard of Forever Strong before now?
