How Christian Film Should Be Made
24 April 2018 | by beorhhouseSee all my reviews

Either a story is too worldly (secular) or it is too churchy. That is the normal state of affairs. Director John Fallon sees things differently, and should be applauded. This is an excellent film of offered, and rejected, salvation.

Guide: Lots of sex, but not gratuitous Lots of foul language, not gratuitous Some scary scenes, not gratuitous
