A COURTSHIP

TFF 2015 Directed by Amy Kohn
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE A COURTSHIP [TFF 2015]
Amy Kohn’s fascinating documentary offers a peek into the practice of Christian courtship, wherein a woman hands over the responsibility of finding a husband to her parents and the will of God. Such is the path for Kelly, who after growing up happily in a secular family is prompted to alter the course of her own life after her parents’ divorce. Enter Ron and Dawn Wright, a Christian couple who offer to serve as Kelly’s adopted spiritual-family through the courtship process. Now in her 30s, Kelly lives with the Wrights, relying on them to scout and vet all of her prospective partners, as she vows to save her next kiss for the altar.

Approaching the subject matter with sensitivity and an open-mind, Kohn depicts a lifestyle lived by growing numbers of Americans, though familiar to relatively few. Yet the underlying joys and struggles in Kelly’s story of love, commitment, family, and faith resonate in surprisingly universal ways.
