DVD Review: Uncommon

Uncommon is a Christian film about using our voice to express what we believe in and defend our liberty to do so. Due to budget cuts, Rosewood High School closes down their theater and choir programs. A group of drama students (led by Haley) are determined to create a play on their own. They ask Mark Garcia (played by Erik Estrada), the school's maintenance supervisor, to help them. They have trouble coming up with a script. Aaron Chase (played by Ben Davies) suggests the Bible and is given the task of writing the script. Challenges and oppositions arise. Legal counsel is sought. Public schools are truly a spiritual battleground. Christians are called to be set apart for God's use...to be uncommon. To live by faith. To rely on God. Will faith and freedom of speech and religion be able to stand in public schools? Check out this inspiring, informative, faith-based film (released nationally on DVD on Aug. 4th)! 

Some interesting facts about the movie (found on the website, http://uncommonfilm.com/) :
- The film was created by Liberty Counsel; Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.
The film used a total of 334 volunteers and was shot over a period of 30 days, and five months of post-production.

- The film Uncommon has been made into an actual theatrical production available for FREE to students to perform in their church, school or community center.  Erik Estrada has agreed to be in attendance for the first 10 scheduled performances.
