Set in the world of mega-churches in which a former Deadhead-turned-born again-Christian finds himself on the run from fundamentalist members of his mega-church who will do anything to protect their larger-than-life pastor.
A former bounty hunter who finds himself on the run as part of a revamped Condemned tournament, in which convicts are forced to fight each other to the death as part of a game that's broadcast to the public.
A former Arizona sheriff's wife is killed while riding on their ranch property. It would appear a Mexican man illegally crossing into the US is at fault. As the former and the current sheriff search for answers, lives are changed forever.
A coming-of-age story set in 1965 that follows 12-year-old Andy Nichol (Chase Ellison), a bright student who, like most kids his age, will do anything to avoid conflict for fear of suffering overwhelming ridicule and punishment from his junior high school peers. Everyone's favorite teacher, Mr. Simon (Ed Harris), pairs Andy with the school's biggest outcast and social pariah, Stanley, aka "Big G" (Alexander Walters), on a critical term project. Sporting thick orange hair, a head too big for his body and ears too big for his head, "Big G" has been the object of ridicule since grade school. Before long, Andy will learn that there was truly a method behind Mr. Simon's madness as to why he teamed these two up. As the story unfolds, Mr. Simon finds himself the target of a malicious rumor after Principal Kelner (Amy Madigan) suspends a school bully for brutally beating up a female classmate whom he thinks has "cooties."

Well made thought provoking coming of age family film
Great performances by Ed Harris and entire cast that she'd light on bullying and growing up as a kid..Molly Parker really stole our hearts throughout the engaging and warm movie. And McG with his akwardness and charismatic ways had us on his side the entire film. Truly a well made film by WWE and they should make more films like this as opposed to their lesser Genre's. Remarkably made and great ending .Overall this motion picture had a very thought provoking message. I especially like the ending credits of where they are all now and by the way the Swedish Supermodel Yvette is the Famous model Yvette Rachelle. I highly recommend this movie for all ages as it has a great lesson to be learned by folks of all ages.
