but if they watched the complete movie it might encourage them that they can go home and their parents really do love them and want the best for them

This movie probably wouldn't have much meaning to someone that doesn't have a child in this situation. It is a bit of encouragement to a parent that has a son/daughter that has left home in search for "themselves" and wants to live a life with "no rules" but I doubt you would get the prodigal to watch this movie to the end because they are usually in denial, but if they watched the complete movie it might encourage them that they can go home and their parents really do love them and want the best for them.Good movie for parents who have someone like this. The problem sometimes is they may never come back, this is where prayer helps. God is always good no matter what the situation. .

Not quite what I expected-better!

I almost forgot this was a prodigal movie and thought he was going to turn it around by meeting the girl at first. It was much more realistic the way this was done. It really shows how what seems to be subtle, your false beliefs, becomes so very pivotal and destructive when it comes to fruition. This had substance, plot, value, thought and grace! This was truly worth 5 stars! Thank you!

A Bit Worldly But The Message Comes Through In The End
Verified purchase
This movie is about a pastor's son who leaves home to find the answers to life. He goes to college, but gets in trouble because he doesn't take his studies seriously. He meets a young woman also looking for answers. They begin dating and she starts attending a Bible group that he is not interested in attending. It causes a bit of a rift in their relationship. After he is tossed out of college for pulling a stunt that the dean frowned upon, he returns home. His father, played by Kevin Sorbo is preaching to his congregation the unconditional love of God when the young man shows up. Their reunion is very emotionally moving. You will have to watch the movie to find out what happens between the young lady and Sean. I wouldn't say it was a fantastic movie because of the drinking and partying shown in the film, but the message of the prodigal son itself is there. Not suitable for the very young.

Wonderful movie that parents & teens should watch together!

This movie centers around Sean(Nathan Clarkson),a pastor's son,who leaves home to find life's answers on his own. He goes to college,but doesn't take it seriously and that gets him in big trouble. He meets Ali,a young woman seeking answers herself,and befriends her,but his attitude gets in the way of their friendship. He soon realizes that he must return home because the answers he's been seeking were there all along.As he makes his way home,his father(Kevin Sorbo) is speaking to his congregation about God's unconditional love. I have to say that Sorbo packed a very emotional punch with his performance,as limited as it was. The reunion between father & son is very touching. I wholeheartedly recommend that parents & teens watch this together and discuss it afterwards.

It is a family friendly movie and may help the parent get insight on the prodigals view.

I love Kevin Sorbo
Verified purchase
I love Kevin Sorbo, always have since his Hercules series years ago. He's not the central actor in this movie and that's okay because everyone else brings something special to the film. They come as close as they can to portraying real life, while keeping the language clean so the whole family can enjoy. Some people may not like this but it I think it was great. With a title like 'confessions of a Prodigal Son', you know exactly how the movie is going to end. So this fact makes the film more of a film of affirmation than expectation.

Its good
Verified purchase
My only wish for movies like this is that someone would say the name of Jesus in a positive way, like the girl never said that she received Christ as her savior, and then later they made reference to a "supernatural love". I find that too ambiguous for a movie that is supposed to be Christ-honoring.
