Abels Field ~Review & Giveaway~

First let me say that I was so happy to get to watch Abel's Field.  My schedule has just been so overwhelming and then I shattered a tooth.  I went to the Dentist and there was no saving the tooth so I had to have it extracted and in the process the dentist broke my jaw bone.  after all of that then I found out that I had an abscess where that tooth had been pulled and I have been in agonizing pain for over a week.  With that being said now you know why it has taken me a few more days to get this post up and I just wanted to apologize to all my readers for this delay.

About Abel's Field

Left motherless by tragedy and abandoned by his father, high school senior Seth McArdle (Samuel Davis) faces enormous pressure as he strives to support his little sisters. At school, he endures the daily bullying of the football team. But fighting back only finds him singled out for punishment and assigned to an after-school work detail under the supervision of the reserved groundskeeper, Abel (SOUL SURFER’S Kevin Sorbo). Much to his surprise, Seth discovers that Abel may be the only one who truly understands his struggles. As dark times lure Seth toward desperate measures, the reluctant Abel may be the one person who can point him back toward the light.
My Thoughts
    As I watched this film/movie I kept thinking about my son and the struggles that he goes through each and every day.  Spencer will be 15 in July and he was diagnosed ADHD and Bi-polar at a very young age.  He struggles in school with his work, he has a really hard time finding friends, and even getting along with his sisters.  I notice that Spencer tends to find friends in all the wrong places and does things he knows he is not suppose to do, but will do them just gain a friendship.
     While Abel's Field is more about a young boy that has to take responsibilities for his sisters, I see some of the same torments that our children suffer today such as the bullying.  This movie is really a great Family movie and I totally recommend it to all families.  There are a few places in there that could have used a different language choice but it was over all a great movie.
