Part personal documentary and part doc-as-tribute, Raw Faith needed a true star to work at all. She's found in Marilyn Sewell, a sixty-something Unitarian minister.

As holistic a portrait of religious devotion and engagement as exists in recent memory... a film of utterly sincere uplift.

Peter Wiedensmith's unassuming docu on Unitarian minister Marilyn Sewell sounds a welcome, unabashedly humanistic note.

It's refreshing to see a documentary about a normal grown-up who is struggling with problems of life and love, just as so many invisible others do.

Raw Faith is as pared as Sewell's sermons, as there doesn't seem to be a misplaced or gratuitous moment in the entire film.

At long last a vibrant, emotionally rich, relevant, and timely documentary about a progressive Unitarian Universalist minister and the challenges she faces in her public and private lives.
