When We Last Spoke Review and Giveaway

 

Here is my newest When We Last Spoke Review and Giveaway.  When We Last Spoke is an award-winning, heartwarming story of faith, family, and forgiveness, based on a book by Marci Henna.

Trigger Warning  This movie is wholesome yet depicts abandonment, war, and death.

My Thoughts

Let’s set aside that Laura Ingalls Wilder portrays a grandmother in this film for a moment.  Corbin Bernsen, yes, I can see him as a grandfather.  Cloris Leachman, yes, I can see her as a wacky great grandmother.  Yet, Melissa Gilbert threw me off a bit.  Then, there were the fiddle scenes.  I can see her learning what she knew through her Pa in Little House on the Prairie.

I digress.

Let’s Dive Into the Movie

It was so freaking good.  There were moments that were hard for me to watch, as it triggered emotions of losing my Lady.  I cried, more than I probably should have.  There was no sex, no swearing, nothing.

Cloris Leachman was a star in this movie.  Her wit, humor, and beauty was a thing to behold.  I enjoyed the parts that she was in very much, especially towards the end when she was dancing with her family.

Family

This is what we do, in families.  Well, what we should do.  We take care of each other and no one should ever feel alone.  Even during the hardest parts of life, forgiveness, grace, and mercy should always try to be extended to those we love.  Taking care of each other, even when it is hard and we flush our underwear down the toilet.

Excellent movie.

Press Release

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 8, 2021) – WHEN WE LAST SPOKE celebrates big wins at the 2021 ICVM Crown Awards held June 23 in Grapevine, Texas. The film received awards in each of the five categories it was eligible for, including the titles Best Picture and Best Narrative.

The WHEN WE LAST SPOKE cast received three individual awards – the late Cloris Leachman was awarded Best Supporting Actor, the Silver Award for Best Actress was given to Melissa Gilbert and the Bronze Award for Best Actor was awarded to Corbin Bernsen.  “We are so grateful to the wonderful team that helped make this film a reality,” says Marci Henna. “So many
years of love and hard work have gone into this movie. I want to thank the NRB and ICVMs for recognizing us and placing us with such an amazing group of nominees.”

Past wins include “Audience Favorite” at the Austin Film Festival and the film’s official selection at the Heartland International Film Festival.  Following the lovable and nutty family of sisters Juliet and Evangeline, WHEN WE LAST SPOKE gives viewers an insight into the beauty of the Cranbournes as they journey through the ups and downs of their unexpected situation.

Life for Juliet and Evangeline changes quickly after their father James departs to fight in the Vietnam War and their mother, who feels ill-equipped to raise two daughters alone, leaves them with their grandparents, Walt and Ruby, to pursue her own singing career. Together, the family learns how to overcome heartbreak and uncertainty by holding tight to the most important aspects of life – family, friends, love and forgiveness.

Inspired by the novel from Marci Henna, director Joanne Hock and screenplay writers Rick Eldridge and Jimmy Hager pack WHEN WE LAST SPOKE with humor, heartbreak and triumph. Audiences will leave grateful for the gift of family, the relief of laughter and with a newfound appreciation for the often kooky relationships with friends and family.

About Church People

Weary from the showiness and materialism that has overtaken his ministry efforts, Guy (Ramsey) goes on a journey to get back in touch with the heart of ministry and be a real role model to his youth group kids. He makes the difficult decision to cut short his speaking tour managed by his money-focused agent (Faison) after realizing that his reputation has become more fame-based than Gospel-driven.
But when Guy attempts to return to regular youth ministry, he is thrust into the throes of dissuading the youth group from performing a strange and potentially blasphemous stunt for the upcoming Easter service, starring a young, zealous new believer, Blaise. In attempting to manage his youth group while navigating an unexpected love interest in the Senior Pastor’s daughter (Cahill) and being a new father to his grown daughter (Manfredi), Guy ultimately rediscovers and puts on a powerful presentation of why we all need to put our hope in Jesus and not in ourselves.

Thoughts

“WWJD”…what about “What Has Jesus Already Done.”  Powerful statement.  “God loves the mess we are right now.”  “God’s love is bigger than our mess.”  Stephen Baldwin’s character, Chad, wow.  Thought-provoking.  Joey Fatone is hysterical.  You can definitely tell which are trained and which are not.  Reminds me of Faith Like Potatoes and Fly Wheel.  Great movies if you can get past some of the actors.  Excellent message.  Music is great.  The scenery is great.

Is it sad that I, personally know, 2 pastors that are just like the megachurch pastor in this movie?  So into the next big thing.  Lying to kids, parents, and whoever watches them online.  Congregations buying them vehicles that cost more than my first house.  Once I saw the person behind the pulpit, I knew that they were not all they claimed to be.  So many people being misled.
Slightly idealistic about adoption and finding that long-lost father.  Once found, it all seems perfect.  That can be very triggering to children who come from hard places.  This is what they dream of and this movie fits the bill.  I know that it is probably mute and most people do not understand.  As an adoptive mom, I get it.  As good as this movie is, I will probably not let my younger adopted kids watch this.  It could be very triggering for them.  That makes me sad, though I do see the point.

Rediscovering Your Passion

This is a Christian comedy about the megachurch mega-production subculture and getting back to the simplicity of the Gospel.  It stars Christian comedian Thor Ramsey, Hallmark Channel’s Erin Cahill, Stephen Baldwin, Donald Faison, and NSYNC’s Joey Fatone.
This movie is a powerful message about rediscovering your passion for Christ and learning to surrender what you hold dearest, all told in a redemptively humorous way.  We could all use a good laugh right now, and Church People is a movie your whole family can LOL to!

Endorsements

“CHURCH PEOPLE was a complete surprise for me. I had no expectations whatsoever, and I was totally
shocked when I absolutely loved the movie. I was inspired. I laughed, and then I laughed some more.
Thor Ramsey was phenomenal and his performance brought light to the dark times many of us have
been going through. I can’t recommend this movie more. As a matter of fact, if you’re going, buy me a
ticket and I’ll go see it again with you.

Chuck and I have always believed that Christian film needs to elevate it’s game. That it needs to be
great. It needs to be fruit that if you lay it at the altar, God would be pleased. I believe that CHURCH
PEOPLE has accomplished this. No higher compliment could I give this movie than to say for 90 minutes
I was able to get away from the world, and was the better for it. Christopher Shaw’s directing work in
CHURCH PEOPLE showed passion and love not only for the material but for the cause of Christ. As
filmmakers, Chuck and I we’re inspired by it.”

– Cary Solomon & Chuck Konzelman (Writers & Directors of God’s Not Dead and Unplanned)
“I loved CHURCH PEOPLE! It made me laugh out loud but more importantly, it has a message that
leaves a true impact in your soul.. a perfect watch for this Easter season. If you are seeking something
fun to do with the whole family, make plans to see this movie!”

– Jenn Gotzon (Actress & Producer of “The Farmer and the Belle: Saving Santaland”)
