‘Indivisible’ Review: Uplifting film about the power of faith without getting preachy

Another faith-based biopic tackles the discussion of faith, but manages to keep an appeal for non-Christians by staying on target with the story and never getting too preachy.

The true story of Army Chaplain Darren Turner is directed by David G. Evans (The Grace Card) and crosses over with audiences beyond the normal Pure Flix project by staying grounded and real with great performances by Justin Bruening and Sarah Drew.

The pair stars as Darren and Heather Turner, a married couple relocating to a new Army base prior to Operation Iraqi Freedom’s 2007 troop surge. Darren gets deployed for 15 months to serve as a base chaplain, heading out with his new neighbors, men and women who have already been struggling with the demands of war.

Now his family will face the struggle of an absent father and husband as Darren gets face-to-face with the dark, horrors to war.

Indivisible strikes a chord by balancing the narrative between the soldiers at war, questions of faith and the wives back home. Drew is not just empty dress back home, waiting for her husband to return, she is ministering to others, widows, becoming a pillar of their small community.

The second half of the film drags too much as Darren comes back with PTSD and a distorted view of God’s will. Evans leans on his cast and they deliver well. The does have a lot of predictable elements and some montage moments sell the message short, but Indivisible is engaging.

Indivisible gets 3 stars out of 5 stars

For the faithful, add a star for the power of the message as well as the pulling of those heart strings.
