I don’t ordinarily write movie reviews, but I couldn’t resist this one. The movie, To Save a Life, is a must see for anyone with adolescent children or who works with teenagers (I don’t recommend letting children watch it.) This movie does an excellent job of addressing suicide, teen pregnancy, drinking, drugs, cutting, and more.
When someone we love dies by suicide, we often beat ourselves up not over what we did, but what we didn’t do. This movie really helps put that into perspective. We all miss opportunities everyday to encourage the people around us. This movie challenges us to be intentional – to look for opportunities to love others.
This movie can be used as a great discussion with today’s youth about the pressures they experience every day. It isn’t a cheesy “B” movie but is top quality and is true to life.
