Storyline

About Twist of Faith Jacob Fisher ('David Julian Hirsh'), an Orthodox Jewish Cantor and amateur songwriter who resides in Brooklyn, New York, witnesses the senseless murder of his wife and three children. Catatonic, Jacob walks out on his Jewish mourning ritual, leaving behind his Jewish garments, wallet and keys. Abandoning his identity, he wanders aimlessly, hoping somehow to understand his tragedy. Fortuitously, he lands in Brent, Alabama (population 2,500), where he is embraced by Nina (Toni Braxton), a single mother and the lead singer of a small gospel choir (an unlikely finalist in the competition to determine the best gospel choir in Alabama), her Uncle Moe (Mykelti Williamson) and their gospel community who help his return to life while music brings Nina and Jacob together as they try to make sense of his past and their possible future.

An excellent film.
21 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I found this film to be exceptionally moving. I was loath to watch it, at first, as the brief description suggested that it might be emotionally disturbing to me in a way I do not like, with human tragedy at the basis of the story. However, I soon changed my mind, and have now watched most of it almost three times.

It is a human story set in a religious environment. It shows the true meaning of Christianity while dealing with human emotions in a most tender and loving way. Toni Braxton played her role most well and with feeling, once she began to recognize that Jacab was not only a gentle man, but also was deeply religious. I found there to be no conflict between the very different religious backgrounds of these two people, who were drawn closer together by the commonality of their religious beliefs and feelings.

I was moved to tears on several occasions, and there are few movies that do that to me. The acting is good and the story, excellent. I found two of the reviews somewhat short-sighted as to the meaning of the Christian spirit, and they clearly did not see as much humanity or the meaning of Christianity in it, as I did.
