The theme of December 11-17 is “Celebrate New Beginnings.” A few examples of movies on Pure Flix that feature this theme are:
- MOONRISE (NEW Pure Flix original! Available 12/15)
- CHRISTMAS WITH A CAPITAL C
- LEGACY PEAK (Pure Flix original)
- NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE (Pure Flix original)
After a man’s wife passes away, grief sidelines his career and pushes him away from his teen daughter until a bright and talented horse trainer shows him how to live again.
Will Brown, a country music singer, owns a large ranch in Blanco, Texas, that was homesteaded by his grandfather. Brown’s daughter Ellie collects fossil shells that they find on their property. She has two younger brothers. The movie shows quite a few places around the real town of Blanco, including the historic Twin Sisters Dance Hall.
Real-life country music artist Granger Smith made his acting debut in MOONRISE, and he does a great job playing the main character. He even sings a few songs later in the movie. Incidentally, his real-life wife makes a cameo appearance as his movie wife. The couple lost their 3-year-old son in a drowning incident, so the musician-turned-actor knows all about grief, which made him a good choice for this poignant role.
The dad in this movie stopped playing music for a long time because he didn’t feel like singing after his wife died. Also, since his wife died in a horse-riding accident, he doesn’t want his daughter to ride that horse. And since his wife died at Christmas time, he never opened the last Christmas present she gave him and he no longer wants to celebrate Christmas. He even stopped going to church.
While her dad is preoccupied with his grief, his daughter becomes rebellious. She cuts her own Christmas tree and sets it up in a corner of the barn. She gets on her mom’s horse which is still skittish, and she secretly hires a horse trainer. Imagine her dad’s surprise when this enthusiastic horse trainer lady shows up at their front door!
MOONRISE is so much more than just another romantic horse movie. The acting is first-rate; the cinematography is beautifully done; the story is full of substance and depth. This heartfelt movie about faith, family, and healing has all the makings of a fresh new Christmas classic. The movie will be available on Pure Flix starting December 15!
Christmas with a Capital C
An attorney returns to his hometown in Alaska and quickly stirs up trouble by filing a complaint against the nativity display which is on public property. Needless to say, the mayor doesn’t appreciate him barging in like that and attacking the community’s Christmas tradition. As it turns out, the new guy in town is the one who’s really in trouble and in the end, the locals rally to help him. Daniel Baldwin does a great job playing the bad guy, and Ted McGinley is convincing as his old high school rival (now the town mayor). One of the characters is played by Ben Stine, who’s supposed to be funny, but he’s mostly just annoying. This movie is based on the song “Christmas with a Capital C” by Go Fish, which came out in 2007, making it a bit dated. The main theme is basically the debate of “Merry Christmas” vs “Happy Holidays” acted out. Still, it’s an entertaining family-friendly movie that also could be titled “Christian with a Capital C,” because more people need to act like one, and not just at Christmas. As the townspeople realize, good Christian virtues triumph over political correctness. Watch the movie here.
A pilot named Jason, played by Lucas Black, wants nothing more than to have Noelle’s kids like him before he asks her to marry him. He plans to fly them to her parent’s cabin a few days before Christmas, in an effort to win their hearts before this new family can start a life together. But when his perfectly planned trip to the remote mountain cabin suddenly falls apart, the ensuing adventure turns into a struggle to survive, bringing them closer than they ever imagined. Together they’ll discover how to trust each other and what it means to be a family. LEGACY PEAK is an exciting and heartwarming movie that’s full of faith, drama, and action. Suitable for the whole family, although a couple of scenes may be a bit scary for sensitive young children. (It’s rated PG for peril and brief violence involving wolves.)

Nothing Is Impossible
Take a center-court seat to a journey of transformation as Scott Beck gets a second chance at life and love in this faith-based romantic sports drama. Can he let go of past pains and open himself to God’s purpose? Or will new challenges keep him from the future he always dreamed of? This is a movie about how to trust in God’s timing when it seems like none of our desires are being fulfilled in the way we hoped. Everyone loves a good comeback story – especially one that shows us nothing is impossible and it’s never too late. Life is full of regrets and missed opportunities, but if you get a second chance at something, don’t be afraid to take it! This movie has a valuable lesson about how our past failures don’t define us. Instead, the way in which we react to past hurts can transform us. I’m not even a sports fan, but this movie had me on the edge of my seat and I was cheering at the end! Read my complete review here.
