DVD Giveaway and Review-Abel's Field
Left motherless by tragedy and abandoned by his father, high school senior Seth McArdle (Samuel Davis) faces enormous pressure as he strives to support his little sisters. At school, he endures the daily bullying of the football team. But fighting back only finds him singled out for punishment and assigned to an after-school work detail under the supervision of the reserved groundskeeper, Abel (SOUL SURFER’S Kevin Sorbo). Much to his surprise, Seth discovers that Abel may be the only one who truly understands his struggles. As dark times lure Seth toward desperate measures, the reluctant Abel may be the one person who can point him back toward the light.

Abel’s Field is a very neat DVD. It is a story about struggle, loss, love and mentorship. Some real life issues are addressed here and aren’t sugar coated, but has humor in the story. Just like real life sometimes humor goes along with tragedy.
Seth is a young man still in high school going through all of the things associated with school, but has the added reasonability of taking care of two very young sisters. Their mother died years ago and the father just left. So Seth does his best, but feels so inadequate.
Abel comes to town and works at the school and Seth has to help him as a punishment for getting into a fight. Even though Seth doesn’t have all of the answers, but he has been through hard times and tragedies himself and knows what he needs to do. Abel is an excellent help to Seth, but not until many bad things begin to happen.
I really like Abel’s Field for its honesty, humor and the acting is very well. Also Abel’s Field was filmed in a very small town under 900 people and you can see the friendliness and caring of a small town coming through in the film.
I recommend you watch this film for a family fun time and a great learning experience.
