Good film - not quite what I expected
17 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw the film and was pleasantly surprised by the treatment of this subject matter. Without giving too much away, it's about two young ministers who have an unorthodox outreach to people affected by the porn industry.

Bill Day does a good job of showing them caught between the multibillion dollar porn industry on one side and the conservative Christian right on the other. A particularly telling scene shows Craig, one of the ministers, outside a porn convention where he's been quietly reaching out to participants, porn stars, etc., being confronted by a placard-wielding, megaphone carrying right wing activist. What a wonderful study in contrasts!

Cleaver, funny, and well-balanced. Approaching a religious theme from outside the religious establishment, as a sympathetic observer. While I don't share the activists' passion for their cause, I commend their approach and recommend the film.
