Movie Info

In a small East Texas town, the inhabitants are either bored, self-righteous, scheming or all three. It seems nothing occurs to shake their daily routines. However, all of that changes when Mother Harper (Cynthia Dorn) finds a curious thing imprinted on her screen door: the image of Jesus Christ. With talk of a miracle circulating high and low, the once-obscure town attracts all kinds of fanatics and believers, while locals from the mayor (Richard Dillard) on down are affected.

  • ...A slyly observed slice of Americana.

    December 8, 2006 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Screen Door Jesus demonstrates why [Robert] Altman is a genius and [director Kirk] Davis is a novice.

    December 1, 2005 | Rating: 3/5
  • It's a knowing, dare I say sweet, little film that takes pains to let the characters speak for themselves, never rallying behind an implicit religious message, which may be the best message of all.

    October 22, 2005 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Despite the conflicting statements on faith and religion, revenge and forgiveness, and sex and love, the divergent arguments are ultimately part of the ramshackle grace and peculiar charm of this modest, frequently-satisfying film.

    September 30, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • [Its] gutsy, madly ambiguous unleashing of a mixed bag of religious reactions attests to a genuine sense of regionalism.

    September 13, 2005 | Full Review…
  • An overlooked and ignored gem.
