Synopsis

Jason Priestley (TV’s “Beverly Hills, 90210”) and Andrea Roth star in this inspirational adventure story about courage, love and the power of family. Aspiring author Robert (Priestly) organizes a quick getaway with his wife and daughter designed to rebuild their estranged relationship with his daughter, but when a powerful storm hits they are forced to make a crash landing on the ominously named Bear Island. With Robert seriously injured and no way to reach the mainland, the three castaways find that they must rely on their faith — and each other — to survive the ordeal.

Dove Review

If you were shipwrecked in a storm with your family would you have the “Courage” to survive? That’s just what happens to a family struggling to find each other and their direction in life. As this young family struggles against nature and injury they learn to trust and even love each other. This is a fast-paced adventure for the whole family.

The film has a few faith moments as the family prays for God help in their time of need. Families come in all forms and this one grows together in amazing ways as they are tested by a storm and a menacing grizzly bear. It should be noted that the original picture had some mild language but this has all been removed from this family version.

Dove is pleased to award “Courage” our “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages to this gripping drama.
