Storyline

When we meet David Frank he is a mess. His spirit shattered by the death of his wife, this formerly successful corporate attorney spends days in his bathrobe with his only real companion, his beloved dog, Brutus. While David's away a tornado hits and despite his heroic efforts, he watches helplessly as the dark funnel of destruction sucks up the house, and Brutus, like some Wizard of Oz nightmare - the punishing finger of God. Then, adding insult to injury, the Insurance Company tells him they won't pay because the damage falls under the 'Act of God' clause in his policy. David is livid. But then he gets the bright idea to sue God and His representatives as co-defendants. After a farcical yet poignant series of depositions, the trial commences. Fueled by a megalomaniac and opportunistic judge, a beautiful but damaged defense attorney, and David Frank's own sharply-honed legal gymnastics, the "God Trial" stirs up a frenzy of passions. What starts as a crazy, radical stunt ultimately ... Written by Anonymous

Surprisingly good movie
11 February 2020 | by dabarretoSee all my reviews

I came across this movie unexpectedly one day. It caught my interest because of the title. I decided to give it a few minutes of my time and before you knew it, I watched the entire thing. It was funny but thought provoking. I really liked the concept and it kept my interest entirely. What a pleasant surprise. Highly recommended, especially to believers.
