I'm Not Ashamed Audience Reviews

Greenes Please don't spend money on this.
Smartorhypo Highly Overrated But Still Good
Siflutter It's easily one of the freshest, sharpest and most enjoyable films of this year.
Kaydan Christian A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.
matthangas Beautiful, inspiring story of faith, devotion, and above all else, of love. Not really too much of a spoiler, but truly a heart wrenching ending. One thing I especially found refreshing is this film makes no attempts to portray the Columbine killers as anything other than what they were...cold blooded murderous maniacs carrying out their evil little acts for some demented ideology...a truly beautiful film about how one person, even after passing on, can send ripples of hope and love on forever...well done...
jacobs-greenwood I knew nothing of Rachel Joy Scott until I happened upon this movie, a Netflix recommendation in the Faith & Spirituality category. I have to admit that my initial impression - after watching the first 10 minutes - had nothing to do with the story; the quality of the production and acting distracted me. Not that either are bad, but neither are on par with higher budget films. However, I was soon engrossed in the narrative, which is compelling not just because it's true. If you're open to it, Rachel's story will bring tears to your eyes on more than one occasion, though perhaps not as many as it should. I finally realized that it is the direction - by cinematographer Brian Baugh, an inexperienced director - that's likely the culprit for why I'm Not Ashamed (2016) didn't have the emotional impact that it could have, at least for me.Masey McLain plays Rachel, a young girl who struggled with her Christianity especially given that her dad (a former pastor, which the movie doesn't reveal) divorced her mother Beth (Terri Minton) when she was 7. Beth had to raise Rachel and her four siblings as a single mother for seven years. Before her mother remarried, Rachel recommitted her life to Jesus while visiting her aunt and cousin (Korie and Sadie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame) in Louisiana.Being more outspoken about her beliefs cost Rachel some of her closest friends, but even while knowing it was worth it, she struggled with a teenager's need to be accepted in high school. While some of the story's elements have been changed or fictionalized, the vast majority of it appears to be true according to my research. The character of Nathan 'Nate' Ballard (Ben Davies), a homeless young man that Rachel 'adopts' as her bigger brother - helping him to find Jesus, actually has a different real name.Most of the film's run-time (just under 2 hours) focuses on Rachel's junior year at Columbine, which ended on April 20, 1999 when Eric Harris (David Errigo Jr.) and Dylan Klebold (Cory Chapman) murdered her and 12 others at the Colorado high school before both committed suicide. Rachel was involved in art and drama. Cameron McKendry plays Alex, who played opposite Rachel in a play. This led the two of them into a relationship that Rachel ended when she feared it might become physical.Apparently Rachel positively impacted a lot of people through her Christ-following example, some that she was aware of in life and others that she likely didn't know about. While the film does depict the fact that many students decorated her abandoned red Acura with flowers and letters - making it a shrine, it doesn't show her funeral, which was attended by more than 1,000 people; its live television broadcast audience exceeded that of Princess Diana's.The epilogue does state that Rachel's story has touched millions of lives, but doesn't mention that this is due in large part to family members that wrote books and, most importantly, started Rachel's Challenge, whose objectives are to: help schools and businesses become safer, more connected places to live and learn; stimulate real culture change by actively involving the entire community in the process; change lives by providing culturally relevant social/emotional training; and increase achievement and ensure results by engaging the participants' heart, head and hands in a continuing improvement process.
karpf52 Great story line of a girl who wasn't going to give up on her belief in God and lives and hearts were changed because of it. Truly inspirational. A must see movie for all. Spoiler Alert: Rachael was the first person shot in the Columbine High School shooting and the ending is a tribute to her and if you walk away with having shed a tear you are made of stone! Movie is for all ages but younger audiences may not understand. You will not be disappointed!
Ellen Thiede This movie is amazing. the message is so real, and so powerful. I think it's a great testimony and a great , moving story. Everyone should see this, it will change your life! It has truly inspired me! I don't even know how to describe it. I've seen it several times with family & friends, and they all love it. We need more movies like this for sure. I just love how faithful Rachel was to God, despite her struggles and that she just did what she could with what she had and had faith that God would use her. Great movie!
