There are many people out there searching for something and they just aren't sure what. If I ever feel lost(and even when I don't), I turn to my faith. I know I can feel comfort in believing what I do.
Upside is a christian DVD that was released October 5, 2010.
From the looks of things, Solomon White has a well-mapped future. Finish his senior year of high school, select an elite university, continue his lacrosse career, and reap the rewards of success on whichever road life takes him.
But a devastating hit on the lacrosse field leaves his world literally turned upside down. Will he be able to gain the perspective needed to face his new reality?
UPSIDE provides a fresh look at life through the eyes of Soli (Randall Bentley, "Heroes"), a young athlete struggling to discover where he's headed, both figuratively and literally. Viewing the world upside down is a challenge few will ever face, but that hardly is the extent of Soli's pressing concerns.
He has trouble at home with his mom, he's trying to end his relationship with his girlfriend, and he has to come to grips with a teacher that thinks he can be much more than he wants to be. Suddenly, Soli's senior year looking nothing like he imagined it would be.
Add in Wren (Leah Sims), an unlikely love interest with a strong faith in God, and Soli must take a new look at everything he believes in.
Can Soli win the heart of Wren, who happens to be blind? Can he believe in something he can't see? Will he find a new direction for his life, even if his eyesight never returns to normal?
When you can't trust your eyes, you still have your voice. This unique story is an inspiring reminder that when life gets you down, there's always an UPSIDE.
I always enjoy watching movies with lessons that I sometimes need to be reminded about. I'm sure that different people will take different things away from this movie, but personally, the movie reminds me that sometimes God will put us through hard times in order to better ourselves or someone else.
In this movie Soli must overcome some amazing obstacles but comes out on the other side a better person. It may not have been clear to him at the time, but he did find many good things through the hardship that he had to endure.
I think this is a great movie that highlights love, friendship, hardship, faith and more. I would recommend it to anyone and I have let many friends and family borrow it to watch. They all agree that it is a great movie. Visit Upside to learn more.
