It’s Breaking the Press, out from Fox on DVD. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
A young man loses his way but through the power of his family’s prayers finds the path to redemption and rediscovers the love of his father in BREAKING THE PRESS, on DVD September 20 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. A recent recipient of the Dove Foundation’s “Family-Approved” seal for all audiences over the age of twelve, this inspiring Biblical parable stars Drew Waters (“Friday Night Lights”) as Joe Conahey, a small-town high school basketball coach whose Christian faith is tested by an unsuccessful season and the intense pressure that results. The family’s two star sonsâ€”the older, diligently hardworking brother Matt (Chad Halbrook, Brotherhood) and the younger, naturally-gifted Josh (Tom Maden, “According to Jim”)â€”are separated when Josh selfishly transfers to a powerhouse school hundreds of miles away. His previous team’s top player, Josh finds difficulty adjusting to the big-city program, tempted as he is by girls, drugs, alcohol and stardom â€“ and is subsequently expelled. Only through the power of prayer and forgiveness can the troubled “Prodigal Son” make his way back into the arms of his loving father and find redemption for his family and his team.
Now, I know what you’re thinking…what is in this film that’s inappropriate for somebody who’s eleven years old? It’s probably because at that age you don’t know not to ask questions like “Why didn’t God just let the coach win if he was a good Christian to begin with?” Maybe God had a bet going on the other teams. It’s a mystery.
