Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
This film is a brilliant examination of one man's struggle with his own inner demons, even as he struggles to convert the soul of a young prostitute he meets. Rather than portray the "evangelist" as some kind of super Christian, or shallow hypocrite, the filmmaker reveals the real-life struggle with doubt and integrity, as well as mercy and compassion, that most honest Christians face in our very difficult and pain-filled world.
