I waited until we had a night home together, and popped some amazing hot popcorn! It was the perfect setting. I was a little concerned because I have quite a big age gap between Jam and Captain and I was hoping that everyone would enjoy the movie.
Trust Fund is a very enjoyable movie. It is very family friendly and both of my boys watched it and enjoyed it, Boo enjoyed it too.
The movie is about sisters. One funny thing about siblings is that they can be brought up the same way, going to the same school, the same church, having the same kind of experiences and yet be completely different in their outlook on the world. This is the case in this movie two sisters are raised by loving parents, they have everything they could wish for but choose very different paths. One of the things that struck home to me in this movie is about being their for others even when they choose paths different to our own. Sometimes those we love need to know we will be there for them unconditionally. There were so many good examples of strong women in this movie (and of course not so good examples). I have had times in my life where I have had to watch others make choices that you know in the long wrong will bring them pain, but if they know you love them, when they are ready they know they can come back.
On of my favorite actors Willie Garson from another show I used to watch is in the movie. He is hilarious and plays his role as a private detective perfectly! It's fun when a face you recognize turns up in a unknown movie.
Fun fact about the cinematographer/producer was a very early home-schooler. His parents began homeschooling him in 1982. It's nice to follow the career of a home-schooled person. You can read this interesting article here that talks a little more about this.
Although the Trust Fund movie was fine for all my family it actually received the DOVE SEAL for ages 12+. There is also a downloadable study guide produced by Mapelle films that can be used along with the movie. This would be a good thing to use for a bible study or youth group.
Some of the other reviewers also received a book Love Was Near suitable for girls ages 12+ check out this link for the reviews to learn more!
