A thoughtful and enlightening if less-than-dynamic film powered by an exceptional Chiwetel Ejiofor performance.
April 12, 2018
Director Joshua Marston has found a compelling Pearson in British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, who disappears almost entirely inside the preacher's booming cadences and Cosby sweaters.
April 12, 2018
The movie that's happening in Ejiofor's eyes is far more wracked and compelling than the one that Marston shows us through his own.
April 12, 2018
A moving and intelligent drama about a schism that tore an American church apart, "Come Sunday" spends 105 minutes contemplating the nature of eternity.
April 12, 2018
While Marcus Hinchey's screenplay is occasionally too blunt, "Come Sunday" accords sympathetic moments to all its characters - a strategy that gives this chronicle of religious convictions a conviction of its own.

Come Sunday can't shake its middling script and perfunctory direction, both of which iron out the myriad complications brought forth by Pearson's change of heart.
April 11, 2018
The burden, beauty and mystery of faith are explored movingly, if not always rivetingly. "Come Sunday" may play a little flatly, but its sincerity of purpose remains affecting throughout.

Come Sunday's narrative doesn't have much in the way of emotional stakes, which is exacerbated by the film's vague sense of character and society.

Buoyed by exceptional performances by Ejiofor, Jason Segel, and notably, Lakeith Stanfield, this is a film that should not be missed.

Come Sunday makes an admirable effort to delve into religious conviction and changes in faith, but comes up feeling too normal and disconnected from those matters.

Those fascinated by crises of faith or stories about religion will find stuff to chew on, but as a feature film it leaves something to be desired.

Like the true-life evangelist that inspired it, "Come Sunday" preaches a message of tolerance and inclusivity that couldn't be more relevant in a country grappling with its newfound conservatism.
January 22, 2018
The good news is that [Chiwetel] Ejiofor is great even in the scenes that don't go anywhere. Those who find heaven here on earth in the form of strong film performances ought to commune with Come Sunday. The rest can sleep in.

A mesmerizing contemplation of the clash between rigid dogma and considered reinterpretation.
