Not taking his father’s words of caution, Jake trades his traditional family values for anything that money can buy. He falls into some trouble with some people he considers friends but do not have his best interest at heart. He plummets to rock bottom as he makes one selfish decision after another, just trying to stay afloat, only to find that the real happiness in life is with family and faith in God.

A Long Way Off: A Family Approved Film

A Long Way Off is a great movie for older children. It is rated PG for thematic elements, suggestive content and smoking. While I feel my daughters are too young to watch this movie, older children would enjoy this movie with such a great lesson to be learned. This retelling of the parable of The Prodigal Son is retell-able and with well known actors like Robert Davi, who plays Frank, and John Diehl, who plays the forgiving and loving father, it is quick to become a family favorite.
