I Can Only Imagine 2018 Movie Online 1080p

I Can Only Imagine 2018 Movie Online 1080p. In 2015, directors Andrew and Jon Erwin made the powerful “Woodlawn,” a based-on-true-events film that argued the power of Christian faith can overcome racism.

In their latest film, “I Can Only Imagine,” also based on true events, the brothers again argue that Christian faith can overcome another seemingly unsolvable problem: The effects of child abuse, in this case, persistent and often brutal physical abuse.

In “Woodlawn” the weapon of righteousness was brotherhood. In “I Can Only Imagine,” it’s the power of Christian forgiveness that heals wounds and hearts.  

Like “Woodlawn,” being subtle isn’t on the agenda with “I Can Only Imagine.” The Erwins pound home their message, but they do with such skill and accomplished filmmaking the movie never becomes heavy-handed or too preachy.

Take the brothers’ use of “Amazing Grace,” a Christian hymn that can be used to cloying effect if filmmakers aren’t careful.

Here, the way the Erwins use the song is like an emotional punch to the stomach. It’s both beautiful and emotionally powerful.

“Imagine” tells the true story of the estranged relationship between Bart Millard, lead singer of the popular Christian contemporary group MercyMe, and his abusive father.

The young Bart (Brody Rose) practically winces in anticipation of a slap or punch anytime his father (Dennis Quaid) is around. The situation only gets worse when his mother leaves the house.

As Bart (J. Michael Finley, as a teenager and adult) gets older, his relationship with his father expands to both physical and verbal abusive, especially after the elder Millard learns his son is involved with his high school’s theater program. 

After one too many beatings, Bart leaves the family home, meets his eventual MercyMe bandmates, and struggles to make it in the tough music business. Through it all, the abuse in his childhood and estrangement with his father hangs over his life.

When Bart learns his father has inoperable cancer, he struggles with the idea of forgiveness and reconciliation. That struggle eventually led Bart to write the song “I Can Only Imagine,” which made the band Christian contemporary music superstars. 

In addition to the Erwins’ solid direction, the strength of the movie are the two central performances.
