I may be way behind the times, but I just discovered this wonderful little movie. Many have heard of "Facing the Giants", but fewer have seen the first film produced by the church from Georgia named, "Flywheel".

Now keep in mind that I am a HUGE football fan, especially of college and high school football, which Facing the Giants was all about. I also must add that I am not especially interested in the business world, which this movie is mostly about. All that to say that I thought Flywheel was a far better movie in several ways. I could see that this movie was based on real life stories and real experiences of faith in the lives of the people involved. Though there were no professional actors, each actor and actress b
rought a genuine touch of realness by their faith and true sensitivity to God. In many ways this is a "young David" type of movie: one can can see the child-like faith (and humor) that went into this first step of faith. Truly this is a movie like no other that I have ever seen. If you haven't yet seen it, please do!

It is definately a movie that reaches men! My husband, who is not one to get emotional, was really touched by that movie. They did an awesome job for not using real actors too!
