Trek: The Movie

About:

Trek follows a young Mormon teenager named Tom and his friends on their handcart journey. Along the way, they try to smuggle in unsanctioned food, battle sibling rivalry, encounter a “special ops” Young Men leader, match wits with a Twinkie-loving skunk, and ponder doctrinal brain teasers like, “Do General Authorities go to PG-13 movies?” But, when they encounter unexpected trouble, their faith is tested much like that of their pioneer ancestors. Whether you’ve been on a trek or not, your family will laugh along and ultimately be inspired as you enjoy this delightful film.

In Emilee’s opinion:

I watched Trek: The Movie after our Ward’s Fast & testimony meeting which was perfect because most of the testimonies were about the youth’s trek experience. The movie brought me back to when I was a youth and we went on a pioneer Youth Conference (wasn’t called Trek).  Trek: The Movie was definitely a “Mormon thing” and I loved laughing at the Mormon culture jokes. I also loved that the film had spiritual moments where I was grateful that the kids gained their own testimonies. We see it more and more that life is getting harder especially for teenagers who can loose their way like the character, Tom. I thought Director Alan Peterson portrayed the characters well and the story created a delightful movie. Will it win an Academy Award? No, but it is one I’ll re-watch again and again. Overall, it had a great message and I enjoyed watching it.
