The Runner from Ravenshead

While at the homeschool convention this weekend we picked up a movie that looked interesting. "The Runner from Ravenshead" is made by a homeschooling family using their five children as the ONLY actors. This is not just this family's home videos put on DVD. This is a quality production, with a good plot, and the children really do a great job of acting!

From the web site-

"After a daring escape from Ravenshead Prison, Sam finds herself in worse trouble. Outrunning the relentless wardens seems impossible...she wonders how much longer her strength can hold out. But help is on the way - kind of. Henry, janitor for the City of Refuge Guide Service, is unexpectedly thrust into the line of duty when all the trained guides are called out on other missions. As he sets out on his long-awaited first assignment, he gets more adventure than he bargained for. Will the enthusiastic but awkward amateur guide persuade Sam to trust him before it's too late?

An allegory about finding refuge and rest from the metaphorical wardens we face in our lives, THE RUNNER FROM RAVENSHEAD is a fascinating and fun movie for all ages that weaves a profound message into an action-packed adventure."

We had a family movie night and watched this together. The fact that the actors were all children grabbed the attention of our children right away. The plot line is great: plenty of food for thought in this movie! This movie had us concerned for the fate of "Sam," but laughing all the way through too. As the movie ended "Again!" was the cry of some of our children. They are all looking forward to seeing it again. This is a great movie for the whole family! We're looking forward to the next movie that "Little Crew Studios" puts out (we're told there is one in the works).
