I have had the pleasure of making readers aware of the new movie All Saints, starring John Corbett for a few weeks now. At first I had to base my assumptions that the movie would be good on the movie trailer, but today, I was sent a link to preview the film and I am, quite frankly, overcome with emotion.
All Saints is the true story of Michael Spurlock, an Episcopalian (Anglican) priest who was sent to close down a failing church but ended up saving it with the help of Karen refugees from the region of Burma. With a solid cast featuring John Corbett (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), Cara Buono, Barry Corbin (Northern Exposure), Chonda Pierce, Nelson Lee and Gregory Alan Williams, All Saints is one movie you don't want to miss.
The combination of good writing and moving performances made this film a delight to watch. Filmed at the actual All Saints church and featuring the Karen refugees from that church, this inspirational movie will help you to believe in the power of God, faith and community.
When Pastor Spurlock meets the refugees he believes God is calling him to help them. When he learns that they are farmers and will work to save the church, he feels God telling him to build a working farm on the church property that will contribute to mortgage payments and feed the Karen people. But everything that could go wrong does and he begins to question whether he really heard God speaking to him. But God always works in mysterious ways and this little church community of twelve people would grow not just in numbers but in their faith as well.
An exceptional movie, with an incredible message of hope. Make sure you go see it on August 25!
