Storyline

An eclectic cast of characters intertwines and collides around themes of faith, religion and race in a small East Texas town. Screen Door Jesus tells the story of the church-going, but not exactly God-fearing, town's folk who wake up one morning to discover the image of Jesus on Old Mother Harper's screen door. With media and crowds gathering around the phenomenon, and Jesus staring everyone straight in the face, it's time for people to take sides. Written by Anonymous

Funny and complex drama about the issues of belief
14 November 2003 | by (Schenectady, NY, USA) – See all my reviews

Excellent film about the nature of religion in a small Texas town. When a picture of Jesus appears on a screen door, people react in different ways, and we see how people are both helped and hindered by their belief.

The characters are great and each has a story to tell. I was reminded of Robert Altman's NASHVILLE, where characters interacted into one fascinating mosaic. There are more interesting twists, as characters' beliefs are challenged, and they react and change (and sometimes not).

Even if you're not religious, the film is terrific. Writer/Director Kirk Davis walks a line between scoffing at the nuttiness of religion, and treating it perfectly seriously. It's a religious film for those who believe, and for those who have no real use for religion.

See it.
