Cora spends her days begrudgingly answering phones at a Prayer Call Center under the watch of well-intentioned leader Bill. When a caller shows up convinced he's been saved by her voice, she must decide if she's the one he thinks she is.
William H. Macy,
Altough they don't share any scenes together in the movie, William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman are a well-known couple in real life. They're portraying the protagonist's parents in this film. See more »
Wow!!! I just watched this amazing little gen of a movie on Amazon, and I really hope more people get a chance to see it soon! Well worth it if you do! The ensemble cast is truly something special: starting with rising star Emory Cohen (Brooklyn, The OA) and the always incredible John Leguizamo (Carlito's Way, Moulin Rouge, Bloodline). William H. Macy (Fargo, Shameless) and Felicity Huffman (Transamerica, American Crime), who are real life husband and wife, play the parents in the movie, which I thought was super cool and authentic. The supporting cast features the stunning and believable Heather Lind (Turn) and the very talented Paul Sparks (Mud, and both also from Boardwalk Empire), along with quick-witted funnyman Mike Epps (The Hangover, Next Friday) in a pleasantly surprising, more "serious," but still charming, role. The "younger" cast members are all excellent too (including Grace Van Patten, Al Calderon, Jeff Lima and Leopold Manswell, all of whom are expertly cast)! The story revolves around a teenager, Billy Wyatt (played by Emory Cohen), who is thrust into what turns out to be a Shawshank-type correctional facility for wayward youths. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but suffice it to say the story is inspired by true events and is very gripping and moving from start to finish. The performances are stellar, the cinematography is intimate, and the writers and director really tell an interesting, engaging, thought-provoking and heartfelt story! Highly recommended!
