The Netflix streaming network has been bagging subscribers around the globe with its fantastic choice of movies and series. This streaming service released top movies every month to excite their subscribers. In March 2021, about 20 new movies were released, and including the list was “A Week Away.”
“A Week Away” since its release has been on the lips of many Christians around the globe. The movie happens to be the first-ever Christian musical to hit the screen. The musical setup and plot drew a lot of viewers. Major casts who starred in the movie are Bailee Madison, Kelvin Quinn, Sherri Shepherd, Ed Amatrudo, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Amy Grant.
The movie has a running time of 97 minutes (1Hour 37minutes). The American Christian Musical teen drama centers on a troubled teen Will Hawkins who has a run-in with the law that puts him at an important crossroad: whose only option was to either go to juvenile detention or attend a Christian Summer camp.
The faith-based movie features popular songs by Michael W. Smith, Amy Grant, Curtis Chapman, and For King and Country. On its adventure to make history and rewrite history, the movie’s soundtrack was ranked number 1 on iTunes Christian Album Chart and number 18 on the “all genres” chart.
The writer for the movie’s music, Adam Watts, said that the movie will definitely attract teens who will watch it and even it is for every generation.
According to Christian Headlines, Adam Watts told them that, “When you’re working on a movie like this, you have to start from that target audience, which would be somewhere in the teens, but then make sure that you keep panning back out and going, ‘OK, how’s this going to be viewed from an adult perspective, or a younger kid perspective?’”
In March 2021 week of ranking on Netflix, A Week Away reached number 8 on the Netflix list for most popular titles and number 4 on Netflix’s list for most popular movies.
To add up the movie’s impressive performance, A Week Away was ranked number 3 in the global list of most popular movies and TV series.
