Just finished a DVD I recieved free to review call ONE HIT FROM HOME.
After suffering a career ending knee injury, pro-baseball superstar Jimmy Easton returns to a place he has not been in a very long time...home. Here, Jimmy confronts dark memories from a tragic past as he tries to make peace with a life he once left behind. Things take an unexpected turn when he is forced back into the world of baseball as the coach of an underachieving college team. Coach Jimmy's rocky relationship with Brandon Elliot, the team's only star, forces both of them to deal with their similarly troubled pasts."One Hit from Home" is an inspirational family film that explores the unpredictability of life, reminding us that through our greatest struggles only faith can bring us home.
Life is full of hardships and struggles. This is the case for a former professional baseball player as he finds himself in trouble for acting out his aggression after he is forced to quit the game he loves. As he tries to come to grips with his own situation, he is brought face to face with a young boy suffering from some similar situations.
This was a GREAT family film and had a STRONG theme and message to it.
Also the thing I really enjoyed was that the acting and script were consistent throughout...
Plus many low budget christian films have numerous issues with consistency (IE.. clock says 2 am, item in left hand and then not...) There was only one instance in this film where a man had an item in his hand and then it was gone...
Finding hope in the trouble of life and hitting CURVE balls is the key theme of this movie!
Great film and definitly worth purchasing!
