A cautionary tale about the abuses and theological confusion that can arise in charismatic cultures where 'God told me' is common parlance.
February 14, 2019
In what feels like another near-miss from Netflix, Come Sunday is a low key morality tale that never quite delivers.

Come Sunday Takes the Challenges of Faith Seriously. We Need More Movies Like It.
November 5, 2018
The film rightfully honors the complex theological, ministerial, and relational conundrums it presents.
August 27, 2018
Takes on a sort of watered down pallor of an episode of "Greenleaf" but without the relieving moments of camp and narrative convenience.
June 14, 2018
Come Sunday is a rough journey through what happens when you stick to your guns and try to bring a new idea to an old way of thinking.
April 26, 2018
Real-life story explores faith, spirituality; mature themes.
April 25, 2018
Ejiofor makes the movie worth seeing, full stop.
April 25, 2018
It's a story of faith, but also of loyalties, of obtuse and pragmatic people. [Full review in Spanish]

It's worth streaming Come Sunday on Netflix just for the performances

Despite a terrific and dedicated performance from the always great Chewitel Ejiofor this film is like a sermon you never asked for.

Sometimes, the film tells us, there are no good answers. All we can do is sit with our thoughts and do our best to love each other well.

Come Sunday's faults could perhaps be overlooked if it put in the legwork of examining the implications of its core themes.
April 13, 2018
Marston's insistence on presenting both sides of the conflict without bias, hinders the movie from ever fully delving into any true emotion or character development.
April 13, 2018
As Come Sunday comes to a close, you'll undoubtedly have more questions than answers, but that is why the film works so beautifully.
April 13, 2018
It manages to get into those messier struggles of balancing faith and religion. The result is a quietly contemplative character piece, grounded by a characteristically terrific performance from Chiwetel Ejiofor.
April 13, 2018
The movie itself, overall, feels kind of bloodless.
April 13, 2018
... a remarkably non-judgmental film about conservative religion.
April 13, 2018
Ejiofor does valiant work trying to make that enough to justify the film's existence, and he almost succeeds. But I came away from Come Sunday wanting so much more.
April 13, 2018
It's novel to see it come from a progressive rather than conservative perspective, just as it's refreshing to see an actor of Ejiofor's caliber rather than, say, David A.R. White.
