The Grace Card

Ever complained:
That they don’t make decent movies?
That all the junk coming out of Hollywood is garbage?

How about trying an independent film made in Memphis?

If you’re sick of the typical, cynical Hollywood advertisements for depravity, I strongly suggest that you find The Grace Card in your area and go this weekend. (Go here to find it in your area; type in the name of the movie and your zip code.)

Go here to watch the trailer on the official website.

Secular reviews are being rough on it, but my husband and I thought it was really good. The pace is steady, the writing is fairly tight. A few of the actors could’ve used a little extra coaching, but Michael Joiner and Lou Gossett, Jr. are great.

A word of caution: this is not a movie for small children. Some of the action is tense and little ones are not going to understand the building tension in the plot. Michael Joiner’s character is tightly wound and ready to spring. He reminds me of some people that I know; he’s so good at his angry character, it surprised me to learn that he’s mostly famous for being a clean comedian.

And although I’m a woman and thought it was very good, it’s really a men’s movie.

So, please! Put your money where your heart is and go see this movie.

One more thing… Christians have a reputation as being really cheap tippers, etc… Buy an outrageously priced Coke. Think of it as a positive witness.
