Film can be a dynamic force in sharing important messages and that is exactly what the new film Wildflower does. The message is a powerful reminder that hope can be found even in the darkest, loneliest moments of our lives.
This faith focused film is filled with suspense as a young woman named Chloe comes to terms with her difficult past with the help of Josh, a young man dealing with his own painful loss.
The subject matter is heavy, earning this film a PG-13 rating. However, it’s not one to be avoided as it can open up some important dialogue regarding dealing with trauma, trust, transparency, faith, and healing. While the subject matter is heavy, it is still family friendly as long as you watch with older children.
I watched this film with my 15 year old daughter and we both enjoyed it. The film is very entertaining with plenty of suspense and plot twists that keep you engaged. However, the message of the film creates a value that exceeds it’s entertainment value.
The film tackles the difficult subjects of trauma and grief and how to find healing. Most people think Chloe is delusional. She is very broken and in desperate need of healing from past traumas.
She meets Josh, who is dealing with his own grief, and they develop a relationship that allows them to find someone they each can trust. Through that trust they are able to come to terms with the grief and struggle that consumes their lives and to find the hope of being set free from that bondage.
Ultimately, the film shows that God is always with us and that there is hope and healing for us no matter what we’ve experienced.
This is a wonderful film to watch with your older children and will provide opportunities for important discussions with them.
Wildflower is available now on DVD and will air on the Lifetime Movie Network in June.
Creatively gifted, college student Chloe Moray finds solace from a difficult childhood in her extraordinary art. But when an alarming dream begins to recur nightly, Chloe starts to believe that it might be a suppressed memory and that she may have witnessed a terrible crime as a little girl. Her search for peace takes her on a journey that forces Chloe to confront her past traumas and leads her to cross paths with Josh, a young man dealing with his own painful loss. Together they find in each other someone they can trust as they seek to unlock a cold-case mystery from years before. But with the authorities blocking the way, Chloe’s new-found hope is challenged in this powerful story of faith, triumph and healing.
If you’ve ever struggled in the aftermath of a difficult situation; if you’ve ever wondered if someone (anyone) will listen to you; if you’ve ever wished there was a safe place you could go, WILDFLOWER is a powerful reminder that hope can be found even in your darkest moments.
