DVD Review and Giveaway: Hero
Hero is a movie about the importance of fathers and the impact that fathers have on their sons who do look up to them. Joe Finn, a baseball coach, returns home after being away for 7 years in pursuit of his career as a scout for the big leagues, hoping to get rich. He only gets to spend 2 weeks with his wife, Hannah, who has cancer before she dies. He is left with his son, David, who holds a grudge against him. One thing they share is their love for baseball. Joe hopes to mend his relationship with David by offering to coach David's dying, non-competitive little league team, the Gappers. Joe decides to form a new baseball league that practices diligently, plays competitively, and aims to reconnect fathers and sons in the community.
I cried during the movie. My father was absent from most of my life. I forgave him and had a chance to be at his death bed (even though he was unresponsive). It really touched me to see dads wanting to be there for their sons. A father can make a huge difference in his child's life. I'm so thankful that my husband is very involved with our two sons (and daughter). In the film, a prisoner cares enough to do everything he can to teach his son baseball even behind the prison's fence. Great cast! Check out this heart-warming, inspiring movie about the values of fatherhood, sports, forgiveness, restoration, and transformation! It will come to DVD on September 16th.
