Calvin Campbell is a former professional baseball player who would rather go drinking with his friends than spend time with his seventeen year old daughter who needs him in her life. She is dating a guy that is older than her and has a one track mind. She knows her father doesn't approve of him, but when he doesn't spend time with her, she's running into her boyfriend's arms instead.
While shopping at the local grocery store for some food and alcohol, Calvin Campbell meets an employee there with Down syndrome. He goes by the name Produce and just so happens to work in the produce department. Produce is a good employee that knows the SKU numbers for every fruit and vegetable in the store. As much as he longs for the employee of the month recognition, the honor always seems to elude him. Despite the lack of recognition, Produce is very friendly and makes many friends at the store. One of those friendships is with Calvin who can use a good friend to help him get his life back in order.
Where Hope Grows tells a good story about redemption and spending more time with your loved ones. Because of the language, heavy drinking, and sexual situations, I don't recommend this movie for young children. It's accurately rated PG-13. With that said, I highly recommend it for everyone else. The picture quality and acting is well done. I recognized the actors Alan Powell from The Song and William Zabka from Karate Kid. Sometimes the actor for Produce, David DeSanctis, was a little hard to understand, but he still did an excellent job and made his character lovable. I like how the movie and cast vowed to stop using the "R" word to describe people with Down syndrome. The message of not under-estimating or giving up on people is clear and needs to be shared.
It started off slow, and I found myself with a growing dislike for the main character. Yet as he crashed and burned emotionally, other characters and elements of the story began to weave a picture of character and of hope and beauty, and the end result was a believable story that sends a message that all can benefit from by experiencing in this form.
We watched this with the family, and although I believe it was intended for the family, we sent my 11 year old daughter out of the room a couple times due the the mature content and insinuations of certain scenes.
Overall, this was a great movie and one we all enjoyed.
