Anytime I see a movie advertised as being based on a true story, I'm instantly interested in giving it a go. And boy, am I glad that I sat down to watch "Susie's Hope", a story that had me wanting to close my eyes in places as the movie played across the screen! I think many of us have had moments in our childhoods where we had an awful moment involving an animal, and the scene where Donna is attacked by a pitbull was difficult for me to watch as I imagined myself being in her place. And yet that made the story all the more poignant as Donna moves towards a place of healing and forgiveness. Not only that, but she finds the courage to then pour herself into caring for a poor pitbull puppy, and also face down the injustice of the unbelievable cruelty that the dog suffered. Now, don't come into this movie expecting big Hollywood razzle dazzle. Yet I thought the acting was well-done, the movie flowed along at a good clip, and I was absolutely inspired by Donna's life and what she went through. I think anyone who watches this film, regardless of their own spiritual journey, will be amazed at how she find's purpose in her experience, how she realizes God saved her life for a reason, to change the world around her. Truly, this is one remarkable story!
"Susie's Hope" brings to life the importance of the issue of animal cruelty, set in a gripping story that will leave you thinking long after the closing credits. I award this movie a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
