Southern Gospel Movie Review & Giveaway
Samuel Allen, a 1960’s rockstar, finds himself in jail after struggling with years of anger and blame toward organized religion that has led him down a road of rebellion. In a moment of divine intervention, the judge dismisses drug charges against him under the pretense that Samuel speaks to local schools and churches about the dangers of drugs. Given a second chance, he follows in his father’s footsteps to become a preacher, overcoming the influence of a powerful church leader with a personal vendetta against his family. Southern Gospel is the story of a man overcoming brokenness and never surrendering the dream on his journey to find the gospel… Southern Gospel.
Content Note: While this is a faith-based, redemptive film, it is rated PG-13 for mature thematic content, drug use, some violent content, suicide, and language.
Southern Gospel is based on the true story of Samuel, a young man that was raised by his widower father. He left to become a rock singer. After a horrible car crash, with deaths, Samuel returned to his faith, and home to his father.
He becomes a preacher, like his father, and takes over his father’s church. He marries a young women whose father does not want her to marry him. After his best friend commits suicide, he is removed from his church.
After his father dies, he returns home and finds a scrapbook with the real reason his father left his church. He confronts the church elder that was behind it, who is also his father-in-law. Instead of taking revenge, he is able to forgive the man.
His wife, that was repeatedly abused by her father, is finally able to come to forgiveness. Then the movie shows her father letting go of his vendetta against Samuel’s family, and helping him become pastor of another church.
Southern Gospel has a wonderful forgiveness and redemption message. I really like this movie. It shows how redemption and second chances are attainable. It also shows that forgiveness is not easy, but possible. I highly recommend this movie for teens and adults.
