Twin brothers Jack and Ethan are in constant competition to inherit their father Ike's business. However, when Ike is stricken with cancer, he must confirm who will receive his legacy. After the boys' mother makes an irreversible decision that damages the very fabric of the family, Ethan finds he must confront the choices of his past and anger that poisons his spirit. If he succeseds, he will discover the power that forgiveness holds. Based on the biblical story of Jacob and Esau, Desires of the heart is a compelling tale of faith and reconciliation.
That's all you need to watch this film. Desires of the Heart is like a lot of other Christian movies with scenes that look like they were taped by a home video and acting that's just so so. The message is quick and to the point, with the movie depicting a modern day Jacob and Esau. The writers really took this all the way, with the sons being named Ethan and Jack, the mom, Becca, and the dad Ike Abrams. (In the Bible, it's Rebecca and Isaac, with Abraham being the father of Isaac.) The story plays out with a few flashbacks, mainly giving us a background of the deception that occurred and then bringing home the lesson on forgiveness, especially as some of the dialogue towards the end turns into mini sermons. Not a bad way to spend 45 minutes, though not a film I'd watch again.
