Betrayed and left by her fiancé, misunderstood by her mother, job lost, self-image destroyed, Becca is bolstered by a chance friendship that develops online. Slowly she discovers a faith that helps her find worth beyond what people see.
I had the wonderful opportunity to get a chance to watch 1 Message recently. I had seen the trailer at the beginning of October Baby and was excited to see what this was going to be like.
Just about every person you know or talk to these days will have had someone they know effected by breast cancer. The films creator and star, both had family members who were effected by breast cancer, as did many among the cast and crew. I think that’s why this film seemed to have such a personal touch and feel throughout the film.
The movie seems to take a little while to get going at the beginning but they do a wonderful job in allowing you to see the heartbreak, depression, and loneliness that Becca feels after being diagnosed and treated for breast cancer.
It’s hard to say that I ‘enjoyed’ watching this film about breast cancer, but it was very inspiring to watch.
I loved how with simple words written through emails one persons life helps to change another’s. With words of encouragement and God’s love, Becca slowly steps out of the darkness she has allowed to fall on her and starts to find her life again.
If your looking for a good, heartfelt, inspiring movie to watch.. check out 1 Message for yourself.
