Movie Review:
Genre: Drama
Runtime: 81 minutes
Release Date: May 24th, 2011

JOHNNY is a touching movie about a young boy, with Stage 4 leukemia and without a family, who believes he has a God-given mission to fulfill before he dies. His new oncologist, Dr. Carter, is amazed by Johnny’s cheerfulness, optimism, and most of all, his faith in God. Dr. Carter’s wife, Julia, has been emotionally absent from her family ever since her young son died in a car accident two years prior. Despite her disapproval of the idea, Dr. Carter brings Johnny into their home to be his foster family. It soon becomes clear just what Johnny’s mission is: to lead the Carters to Christ.

The film is steeped in the biblical truths of God’s faithfulness, forgiveness, and grace. Johnny is a shining example of how the Lord provides us with the strength to endure the challenges, the disappointments, the sorrows of life. His interaction with a non-believing family demonstrates that each one of us, no matter our age or occupation, can be mighty ambassadors for Christ. There is a serious theme of death in the movie, so caution is advised for younger children.
