On October 21, the film I'm Not Ashamed will be released to theaters. This movie has been in the works for quite some time and one of our favorite people will star in it - Sadie Robertson.
She plays a girl named Charity, cousin to Rachel Joy Scott, the first person killed in the horrific Columbine High School massacre in 1999. Scott was a devout Christian whose faith was always tested due to the pressures of school, her friends, and work. Although her life may have ended, she left a legacy behind.
Robertson called into The Church Boys podcast on September 6 to discuss her role in the film and why she wanted "to be part of the message".
"Everybody has heard of the Columbine shooting and it’s a tragedy, but Rachel Scott’s story is — even though she did pass away — her story is not about her death, it’s about her life,” Robertson said. “And it’s kind of bringing light into a really dark situation."
The day of the Columbine massacre changed not only the lives of the victims' families, but the entire country. We will always mourn the lives lost, but this movie, according to Robertson, will shine light on such a terrible situation.
“A lot of times, the big news only captures the darkness and the bad parts of the story and the terrible things that happen, but they forget to go back and capture the good things that happened,” she said. “So I think, to me, how many cool things came from it … even after her death, how many people have been brought to life as a Christian because of her story.”
According to the film's website, it will be released in 500 theaters across America on October 21. Will you go see it? Watch the trailer below.
