There is something about Christian based movies that almost repel me. Perhaps it’s the preachy nature of them, and their ability to cram gospel related parables down your throat unwillingly. However, Woodlawn is not that kind of movie, but rather an uplifting and a feel good kind of film.
Woodlawn is a true story based in the 70s about segregation in Alabama, and a football team that must overcome the racism towards it’s teammates to succeed. The acting is pretty good with impressive deliveries from John Voight and Sean Astin supporting a competent cast.
Woodlawn is engrossing and touching a good movie with a powerful message. It has a rather healing quality about it that is sure to inspire. It is preachy but less so from most modern Christian flicks.
