Abel's Field DVD Review and Giveaway

My Review:
Seth is a high school student who is forced to care for his two younger sisters while attending school, playing on the football team and holding at least two jobs.  After a fight with another player, his coach saddles him to another after school job to make up for his inappropriate behavior.  Seth is forced to work with a quiet, yet patient groundskeeper who has his own share of struggles. 

This movie was a wonderful story about forgiveness and perseverance.  Seth had a lot of rough situations to face and with the help of Abel he learned how to come to God and forgive the past and move forward.  It was very encouraging to see a young kid turn over his troubles to the Lord and I like how Abel was honest with him about the forgiveness that he had to accept from God for all the things he had done wrong.  A great family film with many lessons.

About Abel's Field
Left motherless by tragedy and abandoned by his father, high school senior Seth McArdle (Samuel Davis) faces enormous pressure as he strives to support his little sisters. At school, he endures the daily bullying of the football team. But fighting back only finds him singled out for punishment and assigned to an after-school work detail under the supervision of the reserved groundskeeper, Abel (SOUL SURFER’S Kevin Sorbo). Much to his surprise, Seth discovers that Abel may be the only one who truly understands his struggles. As dark times lure Seth toward desperate measures, the reluctant Abel may be the one person who can point him back toward the light.

I'd like to know putting a movie in the DVD player that I won't have to cover eyes or ears of myself or my children when watching. I think this would qualify--and it sounds like a fantastic movie.
