FIREPROOF - A Movie With A Message For Christians!

Click here to see the trailer
___________
(What are Catholics Saying About this Movie)
Cardinal Francis George, Archdiocese of Chicago
"FIREPROOF follows the difficulties of a married couple who have decided to divorce. The movie is infused with evangelical Christianity's sense of marriage as a covenant, and Catholics can share that and complete it with our understanding of marriage as a sacrament. I don't see many movies, but this was one I watched and was moved by."
Archbishop Alfred Hughes, Archdiocese of New Orleans
"FIREPROOF is a remarkable film that can be helpful to those preparing for marriage, those in the first years of marriage, and those who are struggling within a marriage. It is artistically well done, it provides remarkable wisdom, and it truly touches the heart. With the divorce rate even among Catholics as high as it is and the obvious struggles that so many people continue to experience within marriage, this is a film that addresses the challenges of life realistically, persuasively, and with humor. I invite you to see it when it opens."
Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight, The Knights of Columbus
"FIREPROOF is an excellent film that makes marriage commitment real and attainable with Christ's grace."
Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz, Archdiocese of Louisville
"FIREPROOF dramatically affirms that a marriage works best when the husband, the wife and God work together for its success."

At work, inside burning buildings, Capt. Caleb Holt lives by the old firefighter's adage: Never leave your partner behind.
At home, in the cooling embers of his marriage, he lives by his own rules.

Growing up, Catherine Holt always dreamed of marrying a loving, brave firefighter...just like her daddy.
Now, after seven years of marriage, Catherine wonders when she stopped being "good enough" for her husband.

Regular arguments over jobs, finances, housework, and outside interests have readied them both to move on to something with more sparks.

As the couple prepares to enter divorce proceedings, Caleb's father challenges his son to commit to a 40-day experiment: "The Love Dare."
Wondering if it's even worth the effort, Caleb agrees-for his father's sake more than for his marriage.
When Caleb discovers the book's daily challenges are tied into his parents' newfound faith, his already limited interest is further dampened.
