If you’ve ever read a movie review or recommendation here on my blog, then you know I’m all about family-friendly entertainment. I enjoy movies that my entire family can watch together. If that movie is also faith-based, all the better. And, my absolute favorite movies are the ones that also fit into the “based on actual events” category and fall under the family-friendly and faith-based umbrellas.
When I heard about the upcoming movie, All Saints, I got really excited. Not only is this movie based on actual events, family-friendly, AND faith-based, but it also stars one of my all-time favorite actors, John Corbett! I absolutely cannot wait to see this movie.
About All Saints
ALL SAINTS is based on the inspiring true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (John Corbett), the tiny church he was ordered to shut down, and a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. Together, they risked everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all.
After trading in his corporate sales career to become a pastor, Michael’s first assignment is All Saints, a quaint country church with a dozen members. It comes with a catch: he has to close the church doors for good and sell the prime piece of land on which it sits. While developers eagerly eye the property and the congregation mourns the inevitable, Michael and his family look forward to moving on to an established church where they can put down roots.
But when the church hesitantly begins welcoming Karen (kuh-REN) refugees from Burma—former farmers striving for a fresh start in America—Michael feels called to an improbable new mission. Toiling alongside the Karen people, the congregation attempts to turn their fertile land into a working farm to pay the church’s bills and feed its newest people.
Jeopardizing his family’s future by ignoring his superiors, Michael must choose between completing what he was assigned to do—close the church and sell the property—or listening to a still, small voice challenging the people of All Saints to risk it all and provide much-needed hope to their new community.
