I was given Ragamuffin to review in exchange for an honest opinion. That in no way shaped my opinion of this movie.
Ragamuffin is about a Christian music artist, Rich Mullins life. Ironically enough, I had no clue that he actually was the artist behind one of my favorite Christian songs when I jumped at the chance to review this movie. He wrote the song “Awesome God.”
I can literally remember riding my horse with my Mom when I first learned this song singing it as loud as I could because I couldn’t get the words out of my head. It got to the point that my Mom had to jump in and start singing it too. I totally utterly LOVE this song.
Now back to the movie…
I did think this movie is only for a mature audience who can appreciate everything that Rich has gone through in his life. My kids watched it with me, but my younger kids weren’t overly thrilled by having to watch it with me. Now my oldest child, who in some ways is mature beyond his years, fully appreciated and enjoyed this movie.
Jimmy and I both could relate to some of the trials that Rich faced in his life. He suffered with some major doses of insecurity. You already know I definitely struggle with that issue and have for a vast majority of my life! I haven’t turned to alcohol or drugs like Rich did in his life, but my heart still broke with him.
I also feel that this movie reflects the power of God’s love. I feel that God never let him down even when he turned his back on him. Rich made some very positive stands about his religion and faith.
