Virtuous, DVD review


(From AMAZON):

When a young woman, Simone Burner (singer/songwriter, Brandy Allison), is accused of murdering the man who assaulted her, she seeks out the help of attorney Jack Evans (Erik Estrada) to prove her innocence. 
A ruthless and corrupt prosecutor engages her in a trial that brings the past she has longed to escape to the forefront of her defense. 
Virtuous will inspire and ignite you to live the principles of Proverbs 31 faith, integrity, wisdom and honor.


Albeit Virtuous was initially recommended as starring Erik Estrada, it is Jessica Lynch's name which ultimately caught my daughter's attention. Personally, I always appreciate the opportunity to introduce new Christian movies in view of the doubtful choices offered by Hollywood myself.

This latest Dove Foundation approved film shows different women challenged by abuse under different circumstances, be it bodily or verbal and their triumph over adversity.
We are reminded of the virtues listed under Proverbs 31, a true celebration of womanhood and an inspiration to all of us, young and old.

Finally, whilst the acting was nothing exciting, I found the scenario interesting and the songs very pleasurable.

Due to thematic contents, I would recommend it to older teens and family viewing. 
Check out the special features.
Overall, I give it 4 stars.
