Common Sense Says
Faith-based romance lacks book's chemistry; sex, violence.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Redeeming Love is based on best-selling author Francine Rivers' 1991 historical Christian romance. Inspired by the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible story of the prophet Hosea and his marriage to Gomer, the story takes place in 1850 during the Gold Rush. Farmer Michael Hosea (Tom Lewis) prays for a wife and falls for Angel (Abigail Cowen), the highest-earning sex worker in Pair-a-Dice, California. The movie, like the book, deals with heavy subjects including child and domestic abuse, forced prostitution and human trafficking, and more. The film has strong, clear faith-based messages and themes of compassion, empathy, and perseverance, but there's also partial nudity, kissing, and non-explicit sex scenes, as well as several sequences that take place in brothels. Violence is pervasive, too, with the threat of/references to child and adult rape, pedophilia, incest, brawls, beatings, domestic abuse, and murders, including a lynching. Adults drink, and language includes "son of a bitch," "damn," "whore," and other insults.
