A band of street kids turn a Hollywood filmmaker’s world upside down. Laugh, cheer, & be inspired by this faith-based drama.
With its theme of loving helpless kids and the richness of the characters, “Fourth World” offers up a mesmerizing viewing experience about a documentary filmmaker who interviews and chronicles poor street kids to learn what their lives are like. Along the way, he is captivated by a young girl named Rubelyn, called Rubie, who captures his heart. Her father dies after being shot by a drug dealer and after trading her for drugs. This young, bright girl has no one until Hudson, the filmmaker, and his wife Elena determine they can give Rubie a better life.
The movie does a good job showing the hardship of the lives of these children and the violence and drug dealing on the streets. It features several adopted kids at the end and encourages adoption. Although the movie contains a few scenes of violence, it holds back from crossing a graphic line. We commend that. “Fourth World” shows kids being loved with first-class treatment by some, and it urges more people to step up to do the same. We are happy to award it our Faith Friendly Seal for ages twelve-plus. Despite the realities of the lives of the characters in this film, ultimately they find hope.
