In COURAGEOUS, Alex Kendrick’s character Adam Mitchell is a family man who inspires a group of police officers to make a written commitment to be the best fathers they can be.
According to Movieguide®’s review, “Fathers and mothers will be deeply moved by COURAGEOUS. The acting, dialogue and direction is the best yet in the Kendrick brothers’ movies. Some younger moviegoers may not get it entirely, but it’s a powerful movie that calls for revival of fatherhood.”
In the 2018 movie A QUIET PLACE, Lee Abbott (John Krasinski) protects his family at all costs, and ultimately sacrifices his life for their safety.
Although A QUIET PLACE falls under the “thriller” category and is for more mature audiences, Krasinki made the movie as a love letter for his children.
“If anything, it was about, you know, going into the dark and, and taking a chance when all hope looked lost, you take, you know, you fight for what’s most important to you,” Krasinski told Esquire. “Again, my whole metaphor was solely about parenthood.”
