I had the privilege of watching Just Let Go in the comfort of my home. It has been difficult for me to get out of the house due to having a seven month old, two and a half year old disabled child and a five year old. So, it was a treat to finally get to watch this incredible film. I wanted to see it in the theater but like I said, it is hard to get out of the house.

In the face of tragedy, Chris Williams made the most important decision of his life. On a cold night in 2007, a devoted father of four and a seventeen-year-old drunk driver both received life sentences. In one violent, devastating instant, each face a drastically different future. But as Chris Williams sat in a demolished vehicle, realizing that his wife, unborn baby, nine-year-old daughter, and eleven-year-old son had just been killed, he committed to do something extraordinary: he would forgive. Chris Williams' story is the cinematic tale of how someone can forgive despite the desire for revenge that surfaces within the dark corners of the human heart—showing the world that hope, love and forgiveness can overcome all when you just let go.
EXCEL ENTERTAINMENT is the preeminent independent film distribution company in Utah, and though largely known for its Mormon-themed films (God’s Army, The Work & the Glory series, 17 Miracles, Pride & Prejudice, etc.), Excel has also had success releasing films with non-Mormon themes and stories (Forever Strong, Saints & Soldiers, etc.). Although the technology and means by which audiences consume films is changing rapidly, the demand for highly creative storytelling that motivates us to live up to the light that each of us has been given is as high as ever. We feel a deep obligation to not only bring stories of hope to the world, but to promote films with high standards of craftsmanship reflective of a belief in a divine and benevolent creator.
I was impressed with this film. It was based on a true story and I couldn't even imagine going through the heartaches that Chris Williams went through. I've had my fair share of trials but this was an incredible story about one man's heart turning toward forgiveness. It proves that there are decent people out there. We are all trying to get through life and sometimes we need to help one another while overcoming the most difficult challenges. I'm so glad I had the opportunity of viewing this incredible film and know that you will enjoy it as much as I did. I loved it! I ended up giving the DVD to my sister who knows the director. She was super excited to own Just Let Go.
