Aimee McPherson drew thousands to her Hollywood Temple, healing the sick, speaking in tongues, and raising the dead. She even stopped the rain in Kansas. Until, the miracles stopped in 1926 when she mysteriously disappeared. The film poignantly addresses her search for love. She could heal the multitudes, but she could not heal her own broken heart.Written by
The speakeasy where David Hutton gives a sermon and collects money from the prostitutes is actually the 1920s speakeasy where the events occurred; it is located on Hollywood Blvd. See more »
When the D.A. gives his opening statement in Sister Aimee's trial, there is a large map on the wall behind him that clearly says, "Kern County, California." Her trial took place in Los Angeles County. Richard Rossi was given free use of a courthouse in Bakersfield (Kern County) by a judge who was kindly disposed toward the project and allowed free shooting on a Saturday. See more »
Richard Rossi has produced a captivating spiritual film that cuts right into your soul and challenges our traditional stereotypes of religious leaders. I admire his perseverance in making this beautiful movie and it was compeling that he showed several facets of Aimee including, preacher, daughter, mother, wife and being human. Rossi portrays Ms. McPhearson with godly fire, passion and an unyielding love for God, but at the same time showing sensual,tender, sad and confused human emotions which all of us have experienced in one way or another. "Aimee Semple McPhearson" was touching, moving and caused me to weep in some parts of the movie. GREAT movie with various twists!
