FIREPROOF - Never Leave Your Partner Behind


The following is taken from the Fireproof web-site. It's coming... the movie is coming out August 2008!
At work, inside burning buildings, Capt. Caleb Holt lives by the old firefighter's adage: Never leave your partner behind. At home, in the cooling embers of his marriage, he lives by his own rules.

After seven years of marriage, Caleb and Catherine Holt have drifted so far apart that Catherine wishes she had never married.

Neither one understands the pressures the other faces—as firefighter and she as the public relations director of a hospital. Regular arguments over jobs, finances, housework, and outside interests have readied them both to move on to something with more sparks.

As the couple prepares to enter divorce proceedings, Caleb's father challenges his son to commit to a 40-day experiment he calls "The Love Dare." Wondering if it's even worth the effort, Caleb agrees, but more for his father's sake than for his marriage. When Caleb discovers the book's daily challenges are tied into his parents' newfound faith, his already limited interest is further dampened.
While trying to stay true to his promise, Caleb becomes frustrated time and again. He finally asks his father, "How am I supposed to show love to somebody who constantly rejects me?"

When his father explains that this is the love God shows to us, Caleb makes a life-changing commitment to love God. And—with God's help—he begins to understand what it means to truly love his wife.

But is it too late to fireproof his marriage? His job is to rescue others. Now Caleb Holt is ready to face his toughest job ever ... rescuing his wife's heart.

Kirk Cameron plays the lead role. From the teaser that I hear on the radio -- he sounds like he has really given this his all. I'm excited to see it.

I heard on the radio, and it's backed up on wikipedia, that Facing the Giants cost $100,000 to produce, then through movie ticket sales, and DVD sales, they made $10,000,000 (that's million). Victoria said, "Did we give a little bit of that?" Why sure we did... it was a keeper. Dan bought it. Ü

Of course they have a blog. Doesn't everyone? LOL They are blogspotters. Woo Hoo. The production blog was fun to read. I love those behind the scene stories.

I'm heading to the theaters for this one. For some reason -- we missed Facing the Giants in the theaters... but probably a good thing... since I blubbered through several scenes. I'd better grab a hanky before I go. Those Kendrick boys sure now how to write a good scene, and they just keep giving God all the glory!
