With everything we see today in the media from stories of trafficking to sexual assault on college campuses to domestic abuse, our job as leaders is to pass on respect and empathy to the next generation. That’s why we were excited to see Priceless the movie, spearheaded by the band, For King and Country on October 14th.
Inspired by true events, Priceless, is a powerful drama/thriller about James Stevens who was, at one time, a good man with a great life—but that was then and this is now. After the tragic death of his wife and losing custody of his little girl, James is at the darkest crossroad of his life. Angry, desperate, and unable to hold down a steady job, he agrees to drive a box truck on a shady, one-time trip cross country for cash—no questions asked. But when he discovers what he is delivering is actually who, he is compelled to save two beautiful and frightened sisters who are unaware of the danger that awaits them.
Can love, strength, and faith redefine his past and change the course of his future? This unlikely hero risks it all to save these women, confront the forces that oppose him and ultimately discover the life he was meant to live.
The movie is gaining a lot of attention in the few short weeks that it has been out. Here is what a few people are saying about the movie.
“This is a beautiful story about the value we have, the extent love will go to find us, and how God sees us for who we’re becoming rather than who we were.” – Bob Goff, Author of the New York Times Bestseller Love Does
“Throughout the Priceless story, Joel and Luke courageously stand on the front lines of a real culture war, vividly illustrating what it means to protect, cherish, and honor women and family.” – Elisabeth Hasselbeck, TV Personality, Best-Selling Author, and Mom
“Words cannot adequately express the deepest respect and admiration I have for my brothers Joel and Luke and for their first written work with the fabulous Nancy Rue . . . priceless! The message of this movie-based novel—that every person has infinite value and is worthy of love and respect—is an answer to the cries of this generation. This story is captivating, and I encourage you to read, and be changed!” – Rebecca St. James, GRAMMY Award Winning Artist, Best-Selling Author, and Actress
