With a Christian worldview from a Catholic viewpoint, THE WAY shows the redemptive, inspiring journey of a man whose hardened heart is transformed.

-2 Extreme caution for older teenagers and adults.
THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON is the story of two men, one of normal intelligence yet prone to criminal behavior and the other a Down’s Syndrome man seeking to escape assisted living, who embark on a journey together on a small boat. THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON is a true delight, with a strong Christian, moral, redemptive worldview, including a baptism scene and some gospel music, but it’s marred by too much foul language and some light Romantic elements.
