To Joey, With Love [Movie Review]

To Joey With Love

To Joey, With Love is a touching tribute to a woman who impacted many lives through sharing her gifts and being true to herself.

Country music duo Joey and Rory Feek were at the top of their game—critical acclaim, awards, TV exposure, commercial endorsements, European tours, and hundreds of thousands of albums sold around the world…what could be better? How about a baby! This is where we join the happy couple. Just in time for them to take a year off their music careers to focus on what really mattered. Oh yeah, and they filmed it.

I’ve seen a lot of documentaries but none quite like this. It stays true to the synopsis—intimate home movies spanning a two-year period beginning with a beautiful baby, ending with a tragic death, and weaving an unwavering faith in God through it all. It didn’t have the cliffhangers we’re accustomed to these days but it held a quality I couldn’t ignore: authenticity. I was captivated.

Though this isn’t the path that we would’ve chosen to walk down, it is the path that’s been laid before us. So we put our faith in God and our hope in a future we can’t see. We believe that God will give us a great story.

Through the one-and-a-half-hours we’re invited to observe this piece of their story. The highs, the lows, the mundane, and the incredible. It was an honour to be invited.

Pre-orders of To Joey, With Love on DVD and on-demand are available now and digital HD will be available December 9.

To Joey, With Love Synopsis

Husband-and-wife singing duo Joey+Rory wanted more to life…so they chose less. In preparation for the birth of their child, the couple simplified their lives by putting their music career aside and staying at home, planting roots deep in the soil of their small farm, and the community they loved.

They believed God would give them a great story…and He did.

Experience the incredible true story of Joey and Rory Feek in the poignant new film TO JOEY, WITH LOVE. Intimately filmed by the couple over two and a half years, the movie documents the stirring journey of the 2010 Academy of Country Music Top New Vocal Duo.

God gave Joey+Rory a love story for the ages, one that is sure to inspire hope and faith in all who experience it.
