26 Aug Overcomer releases in theaters on 30th of August
If you’re looking for a new movie to watch this weekend at the cinema, you won’t want to miss Overcomer, an inspirational new sports drama from Alex and Stephen Kendrick, the creators of Facing the Giants, Fireproof, Courageous, and the #1 box-office hit, War Room which opens in South African Theaters this week Friday, 30 August following a successful first weekend in the USA.
Filled with a powerful mix of faith, a twist of humour, and a ton of heart, it tells the story of coach John Harrison whose life changes overnight when his high school basketball team and state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant shuts down and hundreds of families leave their town, John questions how he and his family will face an uncertain future. After reluctantly agreeing to coach cross-country, John and his wife, Amy, meet an aspiring athlete who’s pushing her limits on a journey toward discovery. Inspired by the words and prayers of a new-found friend, John becomes the least likely coach helping the least likely runner attempt the impossible in the biggest race of the year.
This film will leave you filled with hope, inspired to dream, and dare you to reevaluate who you think you are and is the ideal choice for a relaxing family movie night.

I’m a beauty-obsessed, caffeine-fueled, soccer-loving, chocolate-eating, picture-taking, occasional-blogging, faith-inspired, mom of two boys. I live on copious amounts of coffee, work as a digital marketer, and spend my free time listening to podcasts, and bible journalling. I enjoy baking fresh treats for my family, exploring our local city, and looking for new family-friendly places for our kids to enjoy.
