When Jesus taught the multitudes, he didn’t usually expound on deep doctrinal truths. He didn’t even give altar calls. What he did was tell simple yet compelling stories. They were stories that related to everyday life and they were stories of kingdom principles in action.

Girl in Progress is a wonderful film that opens this Friday the 11th of May nationwide which shares a beautiful story about real issues faced by teens and parents today and offers hope and wisdom for dealing with those issues.

ABOUT THE FILM:

Coming to theaters on May 11th! Directed by Patricia Riggen (Under the Same Moon) and adapted from the screenplay written by Hiram Martinez, Girl in Progress tells the story of Grace (Eva Mendes), a single mom who is too busy juggling work, bills and relationships to give her daughter, Ansiedad (Cierra Ramirez) the love and attention she desperately needs. When Ansiedad’s English teacher, Ms. Armstrong (Patricia Arquette) introduces her students to classic coming-of-age stories, Ansiedad is inspired to skip adolescence and jump start her life without mom. While Grace becomes preoccupied with the increasing affections of her co-worker (Eugenio Derbez), Ansiedad enlists the help of her loyal friend Tavita (Disney star Raini Rodriguez), to plot her shortcut to “adulthood”. But as her misguided plan unravels, Ansiedad and Grace must learn that sometimes growing up means acting your age.
