The Gospel (Movie)

LaTonya Taylor at CT Movies reviews the new film, The Gospel. Here's a summary:

This well-done spin on the Parable of the Prodigal Son is a nice change of pace from other recent films that satirize African Americans and the church. Oh, and there's some terrific gospel music too.

And here's her conclusion:

All in all, The Gospel is a more-than-fine movie—the kind of movie Christians who like to complain about Hollywood should support, and the kind of film that may also appeal to people who aren't interested in church. There are real, developed characters here, a number of interesting storylines, resolutions that are realistic and faith affirming, and a lot of good music.
