DVD Review: Let God

Let God is a movie about Amelia, a young woman who reluctantly heads west with her husband, Levi, during the gold rush in 1848 and is left alone in the wilderness when her husband is attacked and killed. A dream for a better life turns into a nightmare. Amelia struggles to survive and struggles to trust God. She has to face harsh winter, hunger, loneliness, and the unknown. She doesn't know what to do or where to go. She feels abandoned by God until she meets an Indian boy who follows her around and becomes her companion. In the end, she realizes that God is always there with her guiding her and watching over her. She has lost everything yet she has found real hope in God.

The leading actress Jasmine Jandreau gives a fantastic performance. Considering that the cast consists of only 2 actors and 2 actresses and there are very few dialogues, I think it's remarkable that the film did hold my attention :). It's a powerful story about faith and trials.
Let God won both “Best Feature” and “Best Actress” honors at the 2013 Breckenridge Film Festival. It was also an official selection at the 2013 Gideon Film Festival and has earned the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for any age.
