Have you ever heard the story of Ray McElrathbey? He is a former Clemson University football safety who encounters a rough childhood and life. He goes through so much and eventually takes in his younger brother while being a full time student and football player.

We were given the opportunity to screen this movie and I had NEVER heard the story about Ray. This movie kept me engaged the entire time and gave me a whole range of emotions. The sacrifices that Ray made for his little brother were challenging and inspiring.

Movie Review

As I stated above, I had not heard the story of Ray before. So, I went into watching this movie blindly and was excited to see the story unfold. While watching, I experienced a myriad of emotions – from laughing to tears!

A combination of humor and seriousness in this movie!

I absolutely love it when movies are based on true stories. This movie was so carefully written/directed as to capture the moments that mattered in this life story of Ray and his brother.

The football team at Clemson was a phenomenal support for Ray during these times. While there was some humor in the story, there was also a lot of seriousness in telling the story.

The fact that Ray was enrolled in a heavy course load at Clemson and a football player was enough! Then, add in taking care of an 11 year old on top of it, and I was absolutely amazed at how he did it all.

At the end of the movie, you get to see pictures and updates from the family that the movie was based on. When it gets to that part, I definitely teared up again as it just brought the story home!

This movie comes highly recommended by me! It is a family friendly movie, there is no vulgar language, drinking or anything sketchy in my opinion.

SAFETY will stream on Disney+ starting 12/11.
