Holiday Gift Guide Day 5: Upside DVD Review and Giveaway

About The DVD:


It’s all in how you look at it …

From the looks of things, high school senior Solomon White has everything going for him: he’s a great athlete, he has a good-looking girlfriend, he drives a nice car, and lacrosse coaches from top colleges are heavily recruiting him.

In other words, Soli has an incredibly bright future. But things aren’t always how they appear.

When a devastating head injury literally flips his vision—and his world—upside down, Soli is left not knowing what normal looks like anymore. His carefree ways are instantaneously replaced by fears of an unknown future.

Upside provides a unique perspective as Soli attempts to come to grips with his new reality. And that’s before he starts falling for Wren, a believer who’s been blind since birth.

Add in trouble at home with his mom, uncertainty if he will ever play lacrosse again, and a teacher that thinks he can do much more in school than he wants to, and suddenly, Soli’s senior year looks nothing like he imagined it would.

When facing life’s twists and turns, it’s important to know what you believe. And even when you can’t trust your eyes, you still have your voice. 

This fresh story of faith is an inspiring reminder that when life gets you down, there’s always an Upside

My Review:


If you are looking for a clean, family-friendly movie, with a fantastic message, you have to watch UPSIDE. The story of a young, promising athlete whose world is literally turned upside down due to a sports injury has some wonderful lessons to it. You will learn that no matter what our plans are, God has plans of His own. Those plans may or may not include what we want, but it is what is best for us. You also will learn about the importance of faith, perserverance, and family. I love that UPSIDE is also a coming of age movie, and teaches the viewer that even in the down times (trials) of life you can always find an upside, when you keep your faith on God! He will bring you through it.


With the Christmas gift-giving season in full swing, UPSIDE will make a great gift for any movie lover in your life.

  1. I love the title of this movie "Upside"-even when life does not turn out the way we expect it to, there is always an upside when God is in control. I would love to watch this movie and share it with others.

  5. I think that this would be a wonderful movie to watch. In a way, it is similar to my current situation, and I would like to see the outcome of this movie. Life does not always go as planned. Thank goodness that I have my faith to carry me through these times.

  19. upon reading what this movie was about my nephew immediately came to mind(my niece also). They both are in sports in a major way-he is 15 and she is 11.
    Right now things are fine but if something would come about that they couldn't play anymore, even money issues, etc. this would be great for the family.
