‘A Must-See’ Film, THE GRACE CARD, Launches Nationwide Feb. 25
I had the wonderful opportunity to attend an advance showing of THE GRACE CARD and it is truly a powerful film that will move you both spiritually and emotionally. It takes you on a spiritual journey that will open your heart and mind to new discoveries about the power of love and forgiveness. This is an amazing film you won’t want to miss!
Here is the press release:
THE GRACE CARD, a story of forgiveness and reconciliation that Catholic leaders are calling a “must see,” launches in theaters nationwide Friday, Feb. 25. Shot on location in Memphis and featuring Academy Award-winner Louis Gossett Jr., THE GRACE CARD tells the moving story of two Memphis cops, one bitter at life, the other questioning his calling, who learn the only way they’ll make a difference is to overcome their differences.
“’The Grace Card’ is a life changing challenge,” says Fr. Maurice Nutt, C.Ss.R., pastor of Holy Names of Jesus and Mary Catholic Church in Memphis. “’The Grace Card’ carries you on an emotional and spiritual journey. Moreover ‘The Grace Card’ assures us that no one is outside the boundaries of grace and forgiveness.”
When Mac McDonald loses his young son in an accident, the ensuing 17 years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God… and just about everyone else.
Mac’s rage stonewalls his career in the police department and makes for a combustible situation when he’s partnered with Sam Wright, a rising star on the force who happens to be a part-time pastor and a loving family man.
Can they somehow join forces to help one another when it’s impossible for them to look past their differences – especially the most obvious one?
Churches all across the country have already purchased group tickets as they work to bring unity to their communities. Radio promotions have challenged listeners to be the “Face of Grace” in their town as well.
The film will have a gala, red carpet premiere Feb. 22 in Memphis with members of the cast and creative team available for interviews, including stars Michael Joiner (Mac), Michael Higgenbottom (Sam), and Louis Gossett Jr. as Sam’s grandfather and mentor.
THE GRACE CARD is directed by David Evans from his screen story with a screenplay by Howard Klausner. David and Esther Evans formed GraceWorks Pictures to produce THE GRACE CARD in conjunction with Calvary Pictures, formed by Calvary Church, the Nazarene church the Evans attend in suburban Memphis. Distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Films, THE GRACE CARD is presented by AFFIRM Films and Provident Films.
