Family-Faith Film Review: Justin Bieber, Never Say Never
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting
Justin Bieber: Never Say Never: This genial 3-D profile of teen pop singer and musician Justin Bieber showcases home movies of his childhood, footage documenting his rise to stardom via social media celebrity, backstage preparations for his sold-out concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden as well as musical performances recorded there and at other venues. Director Jon M. Chu’s portrait of a likable young man striving to resist the temptations of sudden-onset fame is not only perfectly acceptable for audiences of any age, it also highlights his close bonds with his mother and grandparents and the Christian faith he shares with them, typified onscreen by the prayers he and his entourage recite before each show. A-I — general patronage. (G) 2011
