Several scenes of the movie Courageous (in theaters now) were filmed at our very own mill in Albany, GA. Workers at the factory served as extras, and plant manager Bobby Boone, appeared in the film. One of the main characters in the film, Javier, plays an employee at Coats & Clark and is faced with an ethical challenge that puts him to the test. The mill offices and part of the manufacturing area are shown prominently in the film.
If you haven’t seen the film yet, you should know it is a tear jerker, so bring some tissues, but also be prepared to laugh. There is a little humor woven in with the seriousness of the topic of having the courage to step up and be a truly great father figure not only to your own family but to others in need as well. This is a very touching film with a powerful message.
Four men, one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, David Thomson, and Shane Fuller are confident and focused. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood.
While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they’re quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark.
When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God … and to their children?
Filled with action-packed police drama, COURAGEOUS is the fourth film from Sherwood Pictures, the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Riveted moviegoers will once again find themselves laughing, crying, and cheering as they are challenged and inspired by everyday heroes who long to be the kinds of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children.
