By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 2 2015
Format: DVD
This is a feel good heart warming inspirational film based on a true story. It is faith based and seemingly pro-life. Religion and the Bible enter the film, but like so many modern faith based films, they avoid the "J" word (Jesus).

Apple (Vanessa Hudgens) is a 16 year old girl discarded by society and thrown on its refuse pile. In order to get off the heap and change her life around, Apple must take the first step and decide to change her life. She leaves her abusive mother (Rosario Dawson) and seeks out the father she never knew (Brendan Fraser). Dad is understanding, willing to help, but is not loving especially when he finds out Apple is with child.

Apple wants to have the child against her dad's wishes and through a series of circumstances finds herself in a girl's shelter where she experiences the first love and trust she has ever had in her life.

This is perhaps the best film entitled "Gimme Shelter" without Mick Jagger. Her decision at the end should have been better developed, showing a defining turning point. Brenden Fraser's character was a cut out and could have been more animated. Was that slick hair and awful suit how he really looked and dressed?

Worth viewing for those who like Lifetime type films.

I have several friends who were the male version of the main character. The only difference is that men don't have the challenge of pregnancy. The movie shows that homelessness often happens due to tragic life circumstances that are beyond the victim's control. When a teenager gets pregnant without support, the outcome is often tragic. The movie is realistic and doesn't sugarcoat reality. Acting is great and the ending is bittersweet. l highly recommend this movie regardless of whether you're familiar with the issues of teenage pregnancy, homelessness, or poverty. It will challenge you , sadden you, and warm your heart. The next time I walk past a homeless person seeking assistance, l will be more aware and willing to help than before.

Excellent movie, and gritty performance from Vanessa Hudgens, of High School Musical fame. She definitely carries the movie, and shows the range of her acting abilities in performing a believable portrayal of a teenage pregnant girl in distress, vulnerable and afraid. Inspiring and beautiful.

C'est une histoire vraie et très touchante de la petite Apple. J'ai beaucoup aimé le film. J'enlève une étoile par manque de piste sonore en français avec sous titres en français.

Si le bluray contiendrait une piste sonore en français avec sous titres, je lui donnerait 5 étoiles.
