Sharing the tissue box with hits such as ‘The Notebook’ and ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ and starring Erin Bethea, ‘New Life’ is this generation’s new favorite romance. It’s a love story making all of life beautiful. This ‘New Life’ movie romantic movie celebrates life and premieres in select markets Oct. 28. The trailer alone is enough to move one to tears and want to know more about Ben and Ava and become immersed in their story while praying for their victory.

You will remember Bethea as the unhappy wife in the 2008 surprise hit ‘Fireproof’, the year’s no.1 indie film. Now Bethea plays a wife whose love story with her husband takes on the worst life can throw.

‘New Life’ follows Ben and Ava, who meet as children, marry as young adults and together face what life brings,” Bethea said. “Audiences respond to seeing young love become something lasting and strong. We wanted to inspire audiences with love’s power, in any circumstance, to give strength and hope.”

See the NEW LIFE trailer.

‘New Life’ also stars Jonathan Patrick Moore (The L.A. Complex, The Mistle-Tones) and veteran stars like Terry O’Quinn (Hawaii Five-O, Lost), Bill Cobbs (Night at the Museum, That Thing You Do), and James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Drew Waters (Friday Night Lights) makes his feature film directing debut with ‘New Life’, for which he recently won Best Director at the Love International Film Festival in Los Angeles.

“I was drawn in from the first scene,” said Jim Stovall, New York Times best-selling author of The Ultimate Gift. “I found myself impacted on every possible emotional level.”

In ‘New Life’, Benjamin Morton’s (Jonathan Patrick Moore) life changed forever the day he met the little girl next door. Ava (Erin Bethea) was and always would be the girl of his dreams. What began as a childhood friendship grows into a meaningful relationship as the two plan out their lives together. When life takes a turn neither of them expected, their entire future is called into question, and they must decide what it really means to make the most of life.

‘New Life’ is more than a film. It was made to inspire others to celebrate the beautiful moments in their own lives and create those moments for others,” Waters said. “More than anything, ‘New Life’ is a chance to rekindle hope, wherever all of life takes you.”
