Prepared for Everything Except the World – Faith and Film

Sep 1, 2017 @ 6:45 pm  —  Sep 1, 2017 @ 9:30pm

About This Month’s Film: Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, isolated from society, a devoted father dedicates his life to transforming his six young children into extraordinary adults. But when a tragedy strikes the family, they are forced to leave this self-created paradise and begin a journey into the outside world that challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent and brings into question everything he’s taught them.

Critics Consensus: the film’s thought-provoking themes — and an absorbing starring turn from Academy Award nominated lead actor — add up to an above-average family drama with unexpected twists.

“It’s a rare movie that asks such big questions – about parenting, about family, about modern-day America – and comes up with answers that are moving and meaningful, that make you laugh and cry.”

“The script is deeply nuanced and moving, and all the performances beautifully understated. The gorgeous cinematography is second only to the glorious scenery.”
