"Come What May"
When does life really begin?
What is the movie about?
Caleb Hogan, whose mother is a lawyer and father a professor, knows how to win a case. You know the facts, and you do what's right. And then come what may. You know you have chosen God's path.
Now a member of the best moot court team in the nation at Patrick Henry College, will these standards still guide Caleb's decisions? When his team is given the debate challenge of overturning Roe V. Wade, Caleb has to decide. Yet if he stays strong in his pro-life beliefs, he runs the risk of losing the most important debate of his life, and the support (financial and emotional) of his mother. And if he lowers his standards and argues only for an exception to the law, he could lose the heart of Rachel, his debate teammate.
Rachel knows what is right and knows the only right choice is overturning Roe V. Wade. Her firm belief that God is the author of life also plays out through her personal life. Can Caleb learn from Rachel, and win her heart? Or is compromise the only solution that will win him what he thinks he needs?
What I loved about this movie
This movie is made by a collection of home school students and Patrick Henry College students and teachers. The message is loud and clear: Life begins at conception, and God is the author of life. It was so refreshing to see a movie that supported this belief.
It was also refreshing to see how Caleb and Rachel's relationship blossom. Rachel has promised herself and God that she will only spend time in a relationship with a young man who commits to her and her standards, and be pursued in a courtship relationship. It was great to see her defend her standards with Caleb.
Caleb's parents also are going through marriage problems, and seeing them work on their marriage and remaining faithful to their vows was inspirational, and something you don't normally see in the average movie.
Also, this movie has an incredible soundtrack, and being a music lover, this was a real plus!
