Movie Info

Samantha Crawford is living a storybook life: she's happily married, she lives on a ranch where she keeps her beloved horse, and the stories she's told and illustrated since childhood have become published books. When her husband Billy is killed in a senseless act of violence, Sam loses her faith and her will to live. But a death-defying encounter with two children leads to a reunion with Joe, her oldest friend. As Sam watches "Papa" Joe care for and love the kids in his under-resourced neighborhood, she begins to realize that no matter life's circumstances, the love of God is always reaching out to us.more

A faith-based drama about redemption and renewal that is blessed with the saving graces of persuasive performances, handsome production values and some undeniably affecting moments of spiritual uplift.

This inspirational drama, while trafficking in cliches, manages not to deliver its message too heavily.

Contrived and simplistic.

Unconditional is a little movie with a big heart, a message film that doesn't taste like medicine.

Audience Reviews for Unconditional


Unconditional is overly sentimental and a bit forced but it scores points for the sincerity in which it uses both. Though at times Unconditional becomes a bit overbearing the actors involved are able to portray director Brent McCorkle's vision with passion even through all the mush. Unconditional isn't great cinema but it achieves enough feel good moments to make it worthwhile.

Aside from a strong performance from Michael Ealy, most of Unconditional feels like a Lifetime Movie. Sure, it's a good Lifetime Movie, but with a mostly weak supporting cast and the necessity of an audience who can take some giant leaps of logic, Unconditional never soars to the level it wants to. It definitely is a giant step forward for faith-based dramas, mainly due to the level of talent and production value on screen, but the script is severely lacking. It has good intentions, but is unable to deliver on what it really wants to do.

Loved it, great movie with a great message of faith and hope. Papa Joe is adorable and very convincing. This is a real life story which makes it that much believable.
