I Still Believe is the true-life story of Christian music star Jeremy Camp. Starring KJ Apa (Archie on Riverdale) and Brittany Robertson (Tomorrowland, The Space Between Us, A Dog's Purpose). The almost unrecognizable but still beautiful, Shania Twain plays Jeremy's mom and Lieutenant Dan, Gary Sinise plays his dad.
The movie is a long 2 hours and rated PG. It's slow moving but still very enduring. If you spent any time in the 90's in Christian Youth Group, the worship music in this movie will take you back to camps and bring-a-friend-pizza-night at church.
The film starts with Jeremy heading off to an unnamed assumably Christian college in California. (in real life Jeremy attended Calvary Chapel Bible College in Murrieta, California).
After crashing backstage at the Welcoming Concert, he quickly meets and befriends the lead singer/guitaist; Jean-Luc. Jean-Luc asks Jeremy to tune his guitar and later calls him out on stage to hand him the guitar. While walking off stage he makes eye-contact with a student in the audience, Melissa.
A sweet friendship starts and turns into an are-we-or-are-we-not-boyfriend/girlfriend relationship oddly intertwined by a platonic relationship Melissa has with Jean-Luc.
As quickly as their relationship starts, a dramatic turn of events happen and the bulk of the story involves alot of prayer and faith.
Just as you start to praise God for miracles, things don't end as they had hoped. The film starts to leave you feeling like, "dang can't these kids catch a break?" But this is real-life and no, sometimes you can't catch a break.
But this story does have a happy ending and I HIGHLY suggest googling Jeremy Camp after watching the movie.
As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive. — Genesis 50:20
