50-Year Parenting Journey Portrayed in Kendrick Brothers Film ‘Like Arrows’

Filmmaker Alex Kendrick has directed or produced five films during his career, but none had the challenges that his latest one, “Like Arrows,” brought.

The film, to be shown in select theaters today and May 3 with DVD release later this year, follows the life of a married couple for 50 years as they experience the ups and downs of parenting.

Moviegoers will see the couple getting engaged, then having their first child followed by more children and eventually seeing that first child off to college. Along the way, the couple learn the errors in their parenting strategy and opt to have a Christ-centered home. The film ends with their 50th wedding anniversary.

“We had never done anything that covers that kind of time span before,” said Kendrick, the director whose credits include “War Room” and “Courageous.”

Like Arrows is being released by FamilyLife, a longstanding family ministry based in Little Rock, Ark. Alex Kendrick and his brother Stephen serve as executive producers alongside FamilyLife’s Dennis and Barbara Rainey and Bob Lepine. Kevin Peeples is the director.

The film is part of a new FamilyLife parenting initiative, the “Art of Parenting,” which will include free online videos.

A movie trailer, ticket information and Art of Parenting resources are available at familylife.com.
