Deep in the Heart
Deep in the Heart is an inspiring film that reminds us that God is a God of second chances and that he has amazing plans even for the most down and out guy.
This is a true Texan story about Richard Wallrath, who was a full-blown alcoholic and an abusive father and husband. He couldn’t keep his job or his family and eventually ended up all alone and realised that something needs to change. Through finding faith and doing the 12-step program he became sober and realised that he wanted to have a relationship with his children whom he hasn’t seen in years and that he wants to set things right.
In changing his life and strengthening his relationships, he becomes quite a successful man when he opens up a business with his sons. From this he has the opportunity to reach out and make a difference in the community and to really impact those less fortunate. He does learn that his success can’t fix everything and he does make mistakes on the way, but it’s great to see so much good come from a person that was so far away from God at one stage.
Deep in the Heart has a great cast that you will recognise from many other films, like Jon Gries (Napoleon Dynamite), Elaine Hendrix (The Parent Trap) and Val Kilmer (Top Gun), so you know its got good acting. Along with this, you can expect beautiful imagery telling this well written story that spans over eight decades and the music, fashion and decor is quite appropriate to each season that you experience with Richard. Parents should just note that slightly offensive language is used in some spots, it’s not strong, but could be something that you wouldn’t want your children to hear.
