Off Topic: The Widow’s Might
For those of you who enjoyed Fireproof and Expelled, another independent Christian movie is coming out for a limited one-week release in about a week, (hopefully) to a theater near you.
The Widow’s Might is a film produced by two Christian teenagers in Texas, both recent homeschool graduates. The film is a western musical dealing with (of all things) the issue of property tax, specifically how it can hurt the elderly. The official site, with the trailer and other clips from the film is www.thewidowscry.com, and a list of theaters where the film can be seen is here. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link is broken and has been removed.]
I have seen a DVD of the film, and the technical quality is amazing. The story is interesting, and the actors, especially Gator, deliver good performances. The film also won the top prize, the “Best of Festival” award, at this year’s Independent Christian Film Festival.
This film is worth checking out and supporting.
