The Holy Roller is a Wonderful Movie!!
20 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pastor Luke has always known that he possessed the God-given power to inspire people, but he's never had more than a few, paltry parishioners in his small town on which to bestow his glorious gift. When he moves to the city, and achieves great success as a televangelist, he thinks he's finally fulfilling God's plan. It's only when he almost loses his new ministry, and the woman he loves, that he finds the courage to become the man God truly called him to be. Starring Angus Benfield, Victoria Abbott and Jeremy Brennan, THE HOLY ROLLER shows us that the only thing more important than having the faith to begin … is the courage to begin again. This is an appealing movie for a variety of reasons. It is contemporary, has a unique point of view, and is humorous and also is family friendly. The movie features the theme that all things are possible and to give God time to restore things when life is not pleasant. Also featured are some wonderful songs such as "Amazing Grace" and "What a friend we have in Jesus." This energetic film features a unique storyline, solid acting, and some laughs along the way. I LOVE THIS MOVIE!
