thoughts on the movie "Wildflower"

I don't review a lot of movies, because I don't watch a lot of movies but the other day I got an email asking if I would be interested in reviewing an upcoming faith based film. I wasn't quite sure what to expect with the PG-13 film since I wasn't familiar with the actors, or actually anyone else associated with the film.  But Wildflower starring Nathalia Ramos and Cody Longo offered a pleasant, family friendly way to spend an hour and a half.
Chloe is an artist, and some of her memories come out in her art work. That art plus a recurring dream lea her to believe that she is dealing with some repressed memories. As she deals with some authorities who don't quite see things the same way that she does, she finds a friend, Josh, who comes to believe her, and help her on her quest for the truth.
Josh is dealing with his own demons, demons that have caused him to doubt God, and question his faith.  His brother is a pastor who is trying to bring this lost sheep back into the fold but it  doesn't seem to be working. Spending time with Chloe, helping her with her demons proves to be the catalyst that Josh needs to revive his own faith walk.
Several plot twists result in healing for both Chloe and Josh. Faith is a main character in this movie, but it's a living faith, showing how people react, rather than some of the disturbing images of bible thumping pastors trying to scare people into heaven.

I received a copy of this DVD in exchange for a review.
