The Resurrection of Gavin Stone is an inspirational comedy rated PG about faith and forgiveness. Gavin Stone, a washed-up former child star is forced to do community service at a local mega-church and pretends to be a Christian so he can land the part of Jesus in their annual Passion Play only to discover that the most important role of his life is far from Hollywood.
I had fun watching this movie the other day. It makes a great family movie that will open the door for some great discussion about what is means to be the church. While it was a bit beyond my young kids, I wasn't afraid to have it on while they were in the room. I especially enjoyed the scenes of the performance of the Passion Play. So well done and so fitting for this Easter weekend. As a Christian we have to able to laugh at ourselves sometimes and this movie can certainly help you do that. It was also an interesting look at what some people may find difficult or challenging if it is their first time in a church. This film was well made and would be a great addition to any church library or home collection.
The Resurrection of Gavin Stone will be available on DVD on May 2nd. I encourage you to pick up a copy when it comes out.
