Dove Review

Take Two is based on a true story about a man’s journey from a drug dealing, self-centered life to one redeemed and transformed by God’s love and grace. We meet Clay Bauer, trying to restart his career as a filmmaker, and through flashbacks, we are taken through the stories that shaped his earlier life. We learn of the sweet daughter Clay didn’t know he had bore 10 years earlier, and this revelation gets Clay’s attention in a whole new way. His daughter Sophie has been raised by her mother, who’s traipsed through consecutive relationships of abuse, prostitution and depravity. It’s not an easy film to watch.

In his support meetings, Clay encounters Roy, a seemingly simple-minded recovered addict who’s found salvation through his decision to follow Jesus Christ and studying God’s word. Roy becomes the generous, wise friend who helps Clay find his knees and ultimately triumph, through a committed walk with the Lord.

Through it all, however, we see many scenes of violent men abusing women and children. We want to alert our readers to the bloody and bruised faces on women and children as well as the intense scenes of abuse and frightened children. But the filmmaker works hard to keep the focus on Clay’s hope and determination, and Roy’s faithful friendship.

We appreciate the heart and beauty in this story, and we give Take Two our Dove Approved Ages 12+ Seal, with encouragement for families to watch this as a family and discuss the important truths of faithfulness, conviction, and trust in the power of God’s love.
