What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Hillsong: Let Hope Rise is part documentary, part concert film. It focuses on the 11-member Australian Christian band Hillsong United, which has broken sales records and considers their events more worship experiences than musical performances. The "biggest band no one has heard of" is essentially the touring musical worship team of Hillsong church, an evangelical megachurch headquartered in Australia that has satellite churches around the world. There's nothing questionable in the movie in terms of language, sex, or violence, and it offers positive themes of communication, compassion, humility, and teamwork. Unsurprisingly, the movie will have the most appeal for Christian families and/or those who enjoy the band's faith-based music.
