Abel’s Field: DVD Review and Giveaway

Have a tissue box ready when you start watching Abel’s Field! This heartwarming movie is the story of a high-school boy named Seth, who has a very tough life. His mother passed away, and his father has taken off (and later dies, too), without providing for his family. Meanwhile, Seth is struggling to support his 7-year-old twin sisters while juggling multiple jobs and schoolwork. But he loves his sisters dearly and is determined to give them the best life he can. Unfortunately, the odds are against him. The bank begins to foreclose on the house, and Seth gets into trouble when a bully on the football team keeps goading him into fighting. As punishment for a fight, Seth is forced by the coach to help their mysterious handyman, Abel, install a sprinkler system on the football field.


Too proud to ask for help, Seth’s life continues to unravel, and he considers stealing to make ends meet. Will Seth take the money? Will he and his sisters become homeless? Will he ever uncover the secrets of the mysterious handyman? And, finally, will Seth swallow his pride and ask for help? You’ll be praying for Seth to do the right thing and find the best path. As Abel tells him, “You’ll know the right way because it’s usually the hardest.” You’ll also find out by the end of the movie that Abel needs to take his own advice. This story is very moving and realistic. Samuel Davis, who plays Seth, is totally convincing as the young man who finds his life crumbling around him. And Kevin Sorbo gives a strong performance as the man with a secret past who just wants to be left alone.


I highly recommend Abel’s Field for family viewing. It will jumpstart discussions about seeking help, bullying, responsibility, doing the right thing, coping with adversity, and finding God in the midst of tragedy. It gave me a greater appreciation for what I have as I know that Seth’s circumstances are not a movie fantasy. This movie would make excellent viewing for church youth and teen groups, too. I hope you’ll pick up a copy of Abel’s Field on DVD and share it with your family.
