'Gravity,' 'Grace Unplugged': Good Weekend Movies?

Ad Feedback

Actors Sandra Bullock and George Clooney are starring in the new space thriller "Gravity," which debuted in theaters across the nation this week.

Bullock plays a fear-ridden, but brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission. Her travel partner, Clooney, is a veteran astronaut.

But what should have been a routine spacewalk turns into a disaster. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving both experience and intellect at the mercy of the unknown and the unexpected.

Then, there's "Grace Unplugged," a Christian musical drama based on a story by Brandon Rice.

A young Christian singer/songwriter, Grace Rose Trey, grows restless singing in a church with her former rock star father. She's beautiful, gifted, and longs to be discovered outside of the church.

Then one day without warning, Grace leaves for Los Angeles in pursuit of a promised record deal. But it doesn't take long before the trappings of the fantasy challenges her faith.

This could be a good weekend for family friendly movies at the theater, but are there any issues that parents should be aware of? Bob Waliszewsi, director of Focus on the Family's entertainment review department Plugged In answers this and more on CBN News Today, Oct. 4.
