It’s that time of year again where ACCTV asks you, “What was your favourite movie this year?” They’re running their annual poll, where you get to decide what movies they will be showing in their Top 3 Countdown airing the first week of the New Year.
2019 was a huge year for premiere movies on ACCTV. There was comedy, romance, action, drama and everything in between! From the swashbuckling action and adventure of Beyond the Mask, to touching drama in New Life and so many more incredible true stories and moving accounts of faith, love and redemption.
These were some of my favourites this year (in no particular order), how about you?
Soul Surfer is the incredible and inspirational true story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton. Bethany lost her left arm in a shark attack and courageously overcame all odds to become a champion again, through her sheer determination and unwavering faith. Bethany is played by AnnaSophia Robb who brilliantly conveys Bethany’s fight to recover from her ordeal. Bethany’s loving parents, Tom and Cheri are played by Helen Hunt and Dennis Quaid and Carrie Underwood makes an appearance as Bethany’s youth group leader. If you loved Soul Surfer as much as I did, make sure you vote in the Top 3 Countdown Poll. VOTE NOW
Beyond the Mask
Beyond the Mask has got it all! Double-crossed assassins, colonial outlaws, revenge, lies and deception, love and romance…phew, it’s a roller-coaster of emotion! Working to redeem his name, and with his past life closing in on him, William must somehow gain the trust and the help of his beloved Charlotte, a woman he has been lying to, as well as a colonial intellectual by the name of Ben Franklin.
