An urban romantic comedy about two young misfits who help a recently widowed elderly Baptist preacher regain his church after members of his congregation are convinced he's planning on eloping with a woman forty-five years his junior.
Sometimes you find romance in places you'd never imagine! Unlucky-at-love Kayla and her best buddy Jewels help a recently widowed Baptist minister regain his flock and his life as they battle a scandalous rumor. Tale of love, family and friendship. Written by
Director/Writer/Producer/Editor Shavar Ross secured a home video (DVD) and cable/broadcast television rights deal for the project before a script was ever written. Barry Gordon, Vice-President of Acquisitions at Image Entertainment was so impressed with Shavar's 35 minute short film entitled, "A Taste of Us", that a full length feature film was requested. The only thing was, Shavar's short was originally a drama pilot presentation for the new TV ONE Network and was based on the civil unrest of the 1960's. Shavar simply kept the title "A Taste of Us" to appease his distributor and came up with a whole new concept, and storyline, conforming a script into an inspirational romantic comedy. See more »
I found the film LORD HELP US inspirational with a sweet love story between two best friends. It was hilariously funny too! I highly recommend this film to any family member, it's appropriate for all age groups! The cast is perfect in all roles, from the pastor to the secretaries at the church. I found that the film is a bird's eye view of a culture in America that enriches us socially and leads us to a better understanding between races and ethnicities. The role of Mrs. Ortiz added the view that Hispanics may be afraid of African-Americans, or may fear them, by her hysterical display. However, since this is a satire, her actions were appropriate and very funny. It' nice to know we can still laugh at ourselves, while still respecting each other's cultures.
