    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (BP) -- Filmmaker Alex Kendrick has directed or produced five films during his career, but none had the challenges that his latest one, "Like Arrows," brought.

    The film, to be shown in select theaters today and May 3 with DVD release later this year, follows the life of a married couple for 50 years as they experience the ups and downs of parenting.

    Moviegoers will see the couple getting engaged, then having their first child followed by more children and eventually seeing that first child off to college.
