Saturday, I was invited to watch A Week Away. It is the first faith-based musical of its kind on Netflix. A Week Away releases globally on Netflix on March 26, 2021. What an AWESOME movie it is and I hope you watch it.
I’ll talk a bit about A Week Away for just a few minutes, I don’t want to give anything away. First, the movie is about Church summer camp. SO many memories of Church camp came flooding to my mind. I can’t count how many Church camps I’ve taken my daughter to. Let me tell you, our beds at Church camp ARE NOT comfy for OLD LADIES. Church camp is how this blog came about. SECOND, I loved the songs. FOR DAYS after I watched it, I went around the house singing the songs. Big House is one of my favorites, I even posted it on my FACEBOOK page. That song has been sung to SO many of my Church kiddos.
About A Week Away
Will Hawkins (Kevin Quinn) is in trouble. Again. It’s what he does best. A foster kid since he was ten, he’s been in and out of more homes and schools than his caseworker can count. After his final run-in with the law, he has a choice to make – go to juvie or a Christian summer camp. Both sounding equally awful he chooses the one where he can at least bring his guitar, one of the last items given to him by his deceased father. A stark fish-out-of-water compared to the other camp residents, he lies about his background to try and fit in, especially with his newfound crush on camp regular Avery (Bailee Madison). But can he keep this up? Does he want to? Will he ever be able to replace the family he lost? With catchy musical numbers and songs by prominent Christian Contemporary Artists and the creative team from High School Musical and Camp Rock, A Week Away comes to life as the first faith-based film of its kind. A Week Away also stars Jahbril Cook, Kat Conner Sterling, Iain Tucker with David Koechner, and Sherri Shepherd.
Saying I loved this movie, makes it seem generic. A Week Away brought back so many memories. So many wonderful memories. Honestly, memories are all I have at this moment. So, I will cherish this movie. It brought back so many great experiences with my daughter.
I hope that you will watch A Week Away when it is released on March 26, 2021 on Netflix. You won’t regret watching this family-friendly film.
