Learn to be a mensch
The Jewish side of my family would have said that protagonist Scott Pryor had forgot to learn to be a mensch. Coming from some real bottom feeding parents and separated from the only family he had any kind of feeling for his young brother, he's determined to rise above the hand life has dealt him.
Pryor becomes a lawyer, he marries Kristen Sharp and they have a kid. Just when things are really starting to click it all falls out from under him.
The film went on too long asking Pryor to forgiving of just a bit too much. Still this being a Christian film it has to follow certain parameters.
I knew someone in my life years ago who was dealt a similar bad hand that Pryor's character got. Sad he never got the breaks in real life Pryor got nor does Pryor appreciate it until it is almost too late.
Granted the Christian parameters nevertheless The List is not a bad film and suitable for more than church audiences.
