Storyline

This surprisingly open and revealing documentary follows two years in the private life of a minister. Marilyn Sewell is successful and beloved in the pulpit, but behind the scenes she is lonely and yearning for change. As she considers leaving the ministry, she realizes she will be leaving her only social network. Yet when she falls in love for the first time, she realizes she does not trust intimacy. A study in contrasts, Marilyn must rely on raw faith as she questions her future, her difficult past, her God, and most importantly... her ability to love. Written by Wm. Peter Wiedensmith

The story of a silently brave woman
22 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

The trailer gives little clue to this story. A story about a female minister who seems very religious in a robe and high pulpit feels like it would not be a story I'd be interested in, but I was curious.

It's a documentary but more in the style of a docudrama.

The minister tells her life story, which is not necessarily one you might suspect. She's a southern lady who left it all for a religion not like the one she was raised in. She had to keep her past and her feelings all a secret from the church members.

During the 2-yrs. of the making of the movie, something unexpected happens. It is what really makes the movie captivating and endearing. I was deeply touched by this story.

It is a great example of a woman who is silently brave in American society.
