All Saints (Movie Review)

About the Movie:

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.

Watch the trailer here.

My thoughts:

I loved this movie and will definitely be seeing it again. The lives of a young pastor and his family are intertwined with a community of refugees, and both groups are desperate to make a way in their new home.

Michael was hired to be pastor of a dying church for only a couple of months, and he had no idea how his life would be changed. He thought his short term post would be a stepping stone followed by bigger and better things. He was not anticipating how things would be entirely the opposite.

When times seem almost impossible to handle, a miracle sometimes does happen, and often when one least expects it. The church that everyone thought would see a wrecking ball was far from it's last days.

All Saints was filmed at the original location where this story took place, and many of the actors and actresses played themselves in the movie. Go see this delightful movie, it is likely one of the best of the summer.

This movie will be in theaters across Canada beginning on August 25, 2017.
