I Still Believe

I Still Believe ★★½

A love story between county singer-songwriter Jeremy Camp (KJ Apa) and Melissa. How he got his music break, met Melissa, fell in love and both followed and believed in God. Yes, it's a faith-based movie, but there is some very good chemistry between the leads. Melissa (Britt Robertson) has an infectious smile.

Warning: it's a tear-jerker, when Melissa is diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Jeremy and Melissa question their faith why God would make them suffer this way. I'm not a super religious person, but it's something I've always wondered about. How there are people doing terrible things that should suffer and yet good people go through life events like this. Maybe we're not meant to understand in this life on earth, it's something we will understand in whatever comes next.

I don't listen to this type of music, but enjoyed the songs and story. Cliched? Sure, but the story fits the faith-based genre well. It's not something I'd recommend to others unless my description sounds appealing. Maybe I'm getting sappy in my old age, but cried. If a movie makes me feel something it's worth at least 2.5 stars. That's where I'm leaving it. Your mileage may vary.
