Today I want to share with you a Christian Film
titled Princess Cut
from Watchman Pictures that we watched recently. Our family is always on the hunt for good Christian films to watch and when they are Dove approved, that is even better. This romantic drama is one movie that is definitely worth seeing. As the mother of three sons ages 21, 19, and 17 along with a daughter who is 15, movies that examine how someone should go about getting married and finding a spouse tend to have value in our family’s eyes.
tells the story of Grace, a young woman in her early 20s, who lives in the Carolinas. Like many young girls and ladies, Grace has been dreaming about getting engaged and finding “Mr. Right”. She remains positive that her perfect man will come along and place a diamond cut ring on her finger. This movie I feel does more to reinforce the principle of waiting for the right person to come along. It also examines some of the family dynamics that exist between parents and children as well as those dynamics that exist between siblings.
I wanted our entire family to watch this movie together as a family. I felt like even our sons could benefit from watching it. I also feel like this would be a great movie for a Church Youth group to watch together and then have a frank discussion on the whole idea of finding a spouse.
The movie opens with Grace being positive that her boyfriend of the time, Stewart, is going to propose to her. However, she quickly realizes that is not the case. She then winds up on a quest for finding what love really is and what it should look like. Grace illustrates the impetuous and sometimes foolish nature of youth. However, she eventually relies on her parents’ guidance and experience to help her navigate the tricky waters of finding true love.
One of our favorite characters in the movie was Grace’s younger brother. He does an excellent job of portraying the love and peskiness that siblings can find between one another. At one point in the movie, Grace loses her temper with Robert, her brother, and it results in Robert being injured when he rides off on his bicycle. But along comes their new neighbor, who happens to be a doctor, Clint Masters to come to the rescue.
While we felt some characters and storylines would have benefited from more development, over all the movie does an excellent job getting its point across. We feel that probably children should be in high school before watching this film, so that meaningful discussions can take place after watching the movie. There are times when Grace makes questionable decisions, including choosing friends wisely and becoming involved with a young man who does have the best of intentions.
But love wins out between Dr. Clint Masters and Grace and the proposal meets every desire of Grace’s perfect proposal. She learns that true love is worth waiting for in the end.
