LIFEMARK is a faith-based drama about a young man who has always tried to hide the fact that he is adopted, but when his birth mother approaches him, he must decide whether to let her into his life. LIFEMARK is a well-made, moving and inspiring film with a strong Christian worldview that promotes trust in God, belief in God’s plan, forgiveness and love for others, with a beautiful pro-life message about adoption and the value of life.
David is a high school senior who will soon be 18 years old. He has an important speech about something that has impacted his life. Throughout his life, David has kept it a secret that he was adopted, but his teacher suggests that this would be a good topic if he is willing to talk about it.
David goes home to find that his birth mother has reached out to him and is interested in meeting him. David struggles with the idea of meeting his birth mother, but his best friend Nate thinks it’s a great idea and thinks they should document his meeting.
By deciding to meet his biological mother, David has now heard from his biological father and must decide if he would like to meet him too. Will David meet his biological mother and father? Will he be able to be open with them and listen to what they have to say about giving him up for adoption?
LIFEMARK is a well-made, moving and inspiring film produced by brothers Kendrick and Kirk Cameron, who also stars. The film is solid throughout, with a very positive Christian worldview. The film promotes trusting God, believing in God’s plan, forgiving, and loving others. There is also a beautiful pro-life message about adoption, giving life, and the value of life.
Don’t let the PG-13 rating stop you from watching this movie. The film’s themes of abortion and pro-life issues are why Hollywood elites give the film such a harsh rating. There is nothing graphic or objectionable about LIFEMARK; it just has heavier themes designed for older kids.
