Seasons of Gray: A Modern Day Joseph Story” tells the beloved Biblical tale of Joseph in a relevant and modern way that reaches all audiences.

The compelling story of Brady Gray (played by Andrew Cheney), the favored son of a two-time widower, begins on location at a Texas ranch. After Brady’s father lavishes him with accolades and gifts, his half-brothers, fed up with his privileged position, force him off the family ranch with a stern warning to never return.

What lies ahead is a roller coaster of ups and downs as Brady goes from restoring his life in a new town, obtaining a job and developing a love interest, to being wrongly accused of sexual assault and thrown in jail. Throughout the story, despite questioning his life’s purpose and plan, Brady remains devoted to his faith and learns the true meaning of forgiveness.

Movie watching is one of the prime entertainment activities for our family.  We watch at least one a week, this year thanks to having been a Fandango Family Room Parent Blogger most of them were in the theater.  We tend to have at least one movie night a week at home though too, firing up the PS3 to drop the DVD in and rewatch one we already own or sometimes getting the chance to review one we have not yet seen.

When you watch that many movies you recognize a fluff story even if its hidden behind multi million dollar explosions and high priced actors.  Likewise a movie can have a great story but can be hard to watch because of a low budget.  I typically find a lot of Christian movies tend toward the latter – a solid plot and story line but it often comes with stilted acting.  

So I honestly was expecting the same with Seasons of Gray, but really wanted to see it because it was made right here in the Dallas area.  And I was so glad to find that it wasn’t at all cheesy or weak in either its story or filmography.

Of course seeing as the movie is based on a true account, albeit in a different era and country, there was not much to improve on in that area.  It’s not so farfetched to drop the circumstances of Joseph’s life into the 21st century and watch it play out in a modern setting.  As Solomon said “there’s nothing new under the sun,” right?

I was encouraged by the standards of the movie both in its retelling of the Biblical account and with the media production of it.  Proving that Christian movies need not be subpar to have both entertainment value and a message rolled into one.
