The movie "Unsung Hero" about the band FOR KING + COUNTRY & their struggles [Review]


Tickets available for EARLY ACCESS NIGHT

About the movie: When David Smallbone's successful music company collapses, he moves his family from Australia to the United States in search of a brighter future. With nothing more than their six children, their suitcases, and their love of music, David (for KING + COUNTRY's Joel Smallbone) and his pregnant wife Helen (Daisy Betts) set out to rebuild their lives from the ground up. Based on a remarkable true story, a mum's faith stands against all odds; and inspires her husband and children to hold onto theirs.

My thoughts: Though I'm not a big fan of contemporary Christian music, I'm more of a traditional music lover, I found I was very interested in the history and story behind the Smallbone family and their foray into the business of Christian music.

This film consists of some very good acting, good cinematography, and true-to-life realism in costuming and design. The portray of their riches-to-rags-to-riches struggle is extremely moving and not real-to-life. As a mother of a family of five children, I found myself truly aching deep within my being at the mother's struggle to keep it all together, provide what was needed, and live a day-to-day life somewhat normal.

The bitterness, depression, deep hurt of betrayal that David Smallbone experienced and his plumet from being a glad-handing promoter to a penniless dad is heart breaking. 

The resilience of the children, especially the youngest, is uplifting and encouraging. They truly win the day.

And most of all, their deep faith and reliance of the God of miracles reminds viewers that we are not alone in our struggles and fight. 

A film worth seeing!
