From the wild opening scene through the heart of this story, Courageous, reveals the story of five fathers, all in law enforcement. One is a bit protective of his kids, yet has a healthy family relationship. Another has abandoned his girlfriend and their child before the little girl’s birth. A third is a Hispanic worker struggling to find his role in a country where his work permit doesn’t necessarily allow him to earn a living. A fourth is divorced, with visitation rights. The final father is the lead in the film – a dad disconnected from son and daughter because he prioritizes his job above his family. When tragedy tears into the circle of five friends with the death of a loved one, the men begin a journey to connect and build into their kids and wives. In stark contrast to these family men, the plot intersects the police officers encounters with a gang. The story weaves in information about the role and influence of fathers in our society. It identifies hard facts about the correlation between “missing” fathers (those who’ve left the home and those still in it) and kids who turn to crime. The movie is a call to accountability. It speaks to the role of men and their responsibility in raising strong, healthy kids. Courageous offers great action, plenty of humorous moments and some very difficult scenes which will evoke a variety of emotion responses from the viewer.

    I was able to see a free viewing of this movie thru LifeWay ministries through our local church. AMAZING MOVIE!!! Just like with FLYWHEEL, FACING THE GIANTS and FIREPROOF these brothers have made a movie that can change peoples lives. This movie is about fathers and their role in the family. What would happen if fathers actually connected with their wives and kids……what a diffrence they would make! I would reccommend this movie to everyone!!!!Comes out in theatres september 30th, 2011.

    Expect in-your-face fatherhood morals bursting from an action/emotion story. Expect the F-words: Faith, Fatherhood, Fears, Failings, Family, Forgiveness. Expecting goodness, I entered the theater for the 1st opening day matinee. Found it great. Sheriff Deputies know the necessity of partnership. They take it to heart by forming a small group of men, adding one ethnic carpenter outsider, and strive to make a difference in the lives of their families. They base their “Resolutions” vows upon the Bible. Unfortunately it takes some tragic circumstances to get the men to this point. Their courageous open faith position will not always be taken well…as Dep. Adam Mitchell (Alex Kendrick-Dir, Writer, Editor, Actor) states, “some will mock, some will have no resolve, others will say `I WILL’. Men of courage with God’s help.” He notes they will (and do) face conflict, challenge, controversy, & need courage. Each man has his own family issues, each an individual path of struggle.A debate is sure to develop. Which is best, “Courageous” or “Fireproof” (2008); the last 2 films by the Kendrick brothers. I vote, equal. Alex does it all in this 4th Faith-based film adventure, while Stephen writes and produces. They also did “Flywheel” 2003; and “Facing the Giants” 2006. Is this film a moral and faith statement from the writers? YES! Of course! That’s what they and their church intend. Expect it, and perhaps be blessed.This film begins immediately with ACTION, life-threatening, a crashing peak, and then an emotional end to the scene. Hold on to your hat, because you have almost 2 hours of emotion, action, and even some comedy ahead after that. Ken Bevel, as Hayes (Yes, from Fireproof) is new to this police squad. No big HOLLYWOOD stars in this low-budget film that relies on none of the typical theater gimmicks. This film, as in preceding Kendrick film successes, relies on spiritual subject matter, PG13 rating, and the targeting of the Christian Theater viewer, eager for BIGGER-FASTER-STRONGER, but also family and faith oriented. It’s worked for the Kendricks’ casts & crews in the past, it will work again. Expect “COURAGEOUS” in the theater for a few weeks, and then the DVD will be bought by those same viewers…and more.Viewership will grow, word of mouth, father to father, mom to mom, pew to pew, family to family.

Recapitalizing Fannie, Freddie not viable: Treasury official

A senior U.S. Treasury official on Friday rejected calls to recapitalize Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, saying it would take at least 20 years to make sure they were adequately funded and that in the meantime taxpayers would be on the hook. In remarks to a housing conference, Treasury Undersecretary Mary Miller repeated the Obama administration's call that the two so-called government-sponsored enterprises be wound down. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which buy mortgages from lenders and repackage them into securities they sell to investors with a guarantee, were seized by the government in 2008 as loan losses threatened their solvency.
