365 Movies Day #27 "Midnight Clear"
Starring Stephen Baldwin and one of my "Coyote County Loser" co-stars K Callan (also featuring Nikki Boyer and Wayne Grace from CCL) this is a touching and somewhat more gritty than expected faith based film by Dallas Jenkins. Written by Dallas's father Jerry B. Jenkins (co-author of the popular "Left Behind" series), this film focuses on the interconnectedness of our lives in God's plan.
It shows how through hardship and seeming hopelessness, people can find hope and forgiveness. Very rarely do faith based films actually move me. Many are too preachy or too poorly done to make a lasting impact. Dallas delivers with this and another film I'll talk about later. It was a pleasure to meet him on the set of "Coyote County Loser" and K, Wayne and Nikki are all amazingly talented. Please check this one out.
