Trivia

The group recitation of "The Lord's Prayer" is a compilation of audio clips submitted by churches from around the U.S. There were only approximately one thousand extras and there was a need for forty-two thousand voices. The 2015 Harvest Crusade in Anaheim, California, inspired by the movie, recorded over thirty thousand people reciting The Lord's Prayer, but was not the source for this movie's audio. See more »

A film with purpose, conviction, and hope. Definitely worth the trip to the theater!
16 October 2015 | by chriscasoni-38-382612See all my reviews

As our country continues to see the lines of racial divide grow farther and farther apart this film is a breath of fresh air. With a well written screenplay and excellent acting Woodlawn lifts the spirit of its audience to embrace the truth that peace can be found for everyone through faith in the one true source of hope and love. We need more films like this to help shape our culture for the betterment of society.

Take your family, take your friends, take your sports teams, and see this film. If we can emulate the change that took place in this town Alabama then maybe we can make a difference in our nation that has eternal weight.
