The details of the passing of John Jones in Nutty Putty Cave have been well documented, but his story did not end there. Witness the power of love, family, and the Plan of Salvation in this critically acclaimed film that shows that family bonds extend beyond this life.
About the author:
EXCEL ENTERTAINMENT is the preeminent independent film distribution company in Utah, and though largely known for its Mormon-themed films (God’s Army, The Work & the Glory series, 17 Miracles, Pride & Prejudice, etc.), Excel has also had success releasing films with non-Mormon themes and stories (Forever Strong, Saints & Soldiers, etc.). Although the technology and means by which audiences consume films is changing rapidly, the demand for highly creative storytelling that motivates us to live up to the light that each of us has been given is as high as ever. We feel a deep obligation to not only bring stories of hope to the world, but to promote films with high standards of craftsmanship reflective of a belief in a divine and benevolent creator.
In Emilee’s opinion:
I was given the opportunity of viewing this movie in the theatre but wasn’t able to find babysitters at the last minute so I was given the DVD to view at home. Such a better choice because this movie definitely made me cry. It was extraodinary! I kept saying, “Please don’t go down.” I also asked why couldn’t they rescue him. Why oh why? It was a well done film which made me anxious and less adventurous. I’m not planning on going exploring in caves anytime soon. I did try the nutty putty caves once and felt claustrophobic. This movie definitely made me appreciate my family and I don’t want to take anything for granted. I also learned about who John was as a person. I couldn’t imagine what it would have felt like but in the movie John had a helper named Aaron to help him. Aaron was encouraging and never lost hope for John along with his wife, Emily. I hope there are more Aarons and Emily’s out there who encourage and lift others up. I truly felt inspired after watching the film. Well done!
