My family is filled with movie buffs! While my kids tend to lean more towards the musical kiddie movies (you know the "get stuck in your head till it drives you batty" type), while my husband favors anything that feeds his manly macho-ness. I, on the other hand, am a huge romantic at heart. But it's not easy to find clean romance dramas these days. So, I was really excited to view this family-friendly film titled Princess Cut!
Princess Cut is a Christian romance drama by Watchman Pictures. If you're a fan of films like War Room, Courageous, or Fireproof, you'll be a fan of Princess Cut as well. It has the same sweet feel with the progressively dramatic plot point and comedic subtlety you'd expect from a Christian film.
Grace is the main character and she's a 20-something-year-old woman who desperately wants to get married. After a disappointing turn of events, Grace finds herself questioning the future she so deeply desires. After disappointment #2, she decides to shift her focus. She's going to seek God and wait for HIM to send her future husband.
I've heard a lot of people say that they don't watch Christian films because they feel like they're not on par with the secular films you see today. I couldn't disagree more! We have several Christian directed films that are just as high quality as any film you'd find in Hollywood. There are more and more family-friendly movies coming out and I'm loving it!
Princess Cut was no different and definitely didn't disappoint. Even though the age suggested for this film is 12+, my 8-year-old daughter and I sat down and watched this movie together. While I wasn't sure how she was going to respond, I was surprised at how engaged she was in the film.
I was open to allowing her to watch this Dove approved film because I knew it would be free of all the inappropriate stuff that you'd typically find in a secular romance drama. For the most part, she spent the majority of the movie predicting who the "bad guys" were and declaring who she thought Grace would and should marry. I was encouraged to see her attention to detail and the discernment that she displayed as the plot went on. And true to form, we were both melty at the end of it. I'm pretty sure there was a draft in our house because my eyes got all watery...yeah, definitely a draft...
Watchman Pictures did a great job at covering the topic of pre-marital relationships. I was really pleased with how clean and tasteful their delivery was. At no point during the movie did I have to cringe or glance over at my daughter hoping that what I had just seen or heard had somehow slipped her attention. It was nice to just enjoy the film!

I believe Princess Cut is a film we should definitely be showing our children when the time is right. Of course, that time will differ from family to family but it sends a beautiful message to kids and adults alike!
