We received a Netflix movie in the mail today. I first saw this movie recommended on the AFA(American Family Association) website. Then a friend of mine asked if I had heard of them. This week I was reminded of them again on a website I visited, so I moved the movie up to the first position. We watched it today and then we went to a Christian bluegrass concert and they were selling it at their table… coincidence? =)
What is so special about the Waller family?
Here is the description on the movie sleeve:
Fleeing an 80-hour-a-week job and the comforts of suburbia, Tommy Waller moves his 13 person family to a secluded Amish and Mennonite community in rural Tennessee, where they live an electricity-free live as organic farmers. Filmmaker Ken Carpenter follows the close-knit clan for 18 months in this affecting documentary, winner of the Jubilee Award for Best Documentary at the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival.
It’s only 44 minutes, but what a beautiful 44 minutes. The Tommy Waller family is living my dream. As the story unfolds, you will see the journey they take is not only physical, but spiritual and very rewarding.
Free on Netflix or buy your copy today on Amazon!
Their next movie: Betrothed
It is a most incredible story. You will laugh. You will cry. And you will be inspired.
