Meant To Be (DVD)
When 20-year old Nathan Burr (Bradley Dorsey) loses his career and his girlfriend, he questions his purpose in life. Compounding his struggle, Nathan grew up in a foster home and never met his birth mother. Nathan sets out on a quest to find his mother and somehow come to terms with her rejection of him. His journey begins by flying to the city where he was born. Upon his arrival, Nathan checks into a hotel and meets Mave (Della Reese) the hotel’s housekeeper. Encouraged by Mave's wisdom and the help of a hotel guest, Shelly, (Kristen Renton), Nathan finds the address of his mother, Linda Dixon (Erika Eleniak). Linda is a social worker who agonizes over the decision she made with Nathan 20 years ago. In an effort to assuage the guilt of having given up her son, Linda is caught up in the life of a teenage mother, Tori (Erin Sossoman) who is conflicted by the decision to abort her baby. When Nathan gathers the courage to meet his mother, he uncovers a terrible secret that totally redefines what was meant to be for his life.
“If you want to see a powerful drama about abortion and one which features compassion for the young girls making life-changing decisions, this is the one to see. … The viewer will experience a few surprises along the way in this story. The theme of the importance of life is woven throughout the film, and the fact that sometimes we live with regret due to decisions we have made. Due to the sophisticated theme, we are recommending this movie for ages twelve plus. This one entertains and makes one think, a pretty rare combination.” – Edwin L. Carpenter, The Dove Foundation
“The film, released by Pure Flix Tuesday on DVD, is a right-to-life parable that could sear the heart of even the most staunch abortion advocate. … In the genre of the recent film ‘October Baby,’ ‘Meant to Be’ sends another clear message to abortion advocates—and those women who have either had an abortion or are thinking about having one—that God has plans for his children and that He is the God of a second chance. ‘Meant to Be’ is a must-see for all women who have been through a similar experience, and for young men who are involved in those experiences.” – Shawn A. Akers, Charisma News
