Description

"Daniel (Zachary Spicer) is a young, idealistic priest who loves his work more than anything. While he struggles to find balance between the dueling philosophies of his mentors, Father Victor (Danny Glover), an old school, no nonsense traditionalist, and Father Ollie (John C.McGinley), a chainsmoking, carb addicted Franciscan, Daniel’s passion for his calling never waivers. And then he meets Jane. After a chance encounter during a late night confession, the complicated and mysterious Jane (Wrenn Schmidt), starts to open up Daniel’s world to an entirely different set of possibilities. And problems. As new bonds form and old ones are tested, Daniel must decide what his true calling really is — and whether or not he has the courage to answer it."

    So refreshing to see a new release that has a genuine and meaningful message. Very cool that it’s based upon a true story. Like any great film - You’ll want to watch it more than once! I highly recommend this one ! I will be watching for more feature films coming out from Pigasus Films!

    Really enjoyed this movie! Thought it would be your standard rom-com without a lot of substance, but somehow it snuck into my heart and mind with themes of purpose and grief and faith. Sweet and subtle, this movie is so much more than just entertainment, but rather a meaningful jumping off point for the characters as well as the audience for a further exploration of our life, our purpose, and all the beautiful and complex ways our faith can play a role. I hope this team makes more movies like this! Two thumbs way up!

    Well developed characters. Based on true story of a Priest. Filmed in Bloomington, Indiana, where Indiana University’s located.

    Nice and complex story with strong characters who develop over the course of the film – you really care about what happens to them. True to life because there are no easy answers in matters of faith and loose ends are not neatly tied off. And my kids were acting out some of the funnier scenes the next morning.

    Great film. Nice story. Danny Glover nails his role as a priest, and John C. McGinley, Zach Spicer, and Wrenn Schmidt are excellent too in his tale of love and life. The Pigasus Pictures team brought a beautiful production to the screen. You'll laugh and think and maybe cry a bit, too. Great work, Pigasus!
