Movie Info

Love, faith and civil rights collide in a southern town as evangelical Christians and drag queens step into the spotlight to dismantle stereotypes. The film takes a personal, and often comical look at negotiating differences between religion and belief through performance, political action, and partnership. Gospel drag shows and passion plays set the stage for one hell of a show.

  • A fairly enjoyable documentary. Cheerful and intriguing.

  • There's much to explore and dissect about the intriguing world that directors Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher spotlight in their documentary "The Gospel of Eureka," but the film, strangely flabby at just 73 minutes, leaves us wanting.

  • Watching people watch a stage is just lazy filmmaking, no matter how many donkeys, doves and bleating goats enliven the spectacle.

  • It's as if Eureka Springs isn't about religion, but rather a religion itself. Come join us. It's subtle, but it's like a friendly knock on your door met with a bottle of cognac and a book of hymns. It's good-natured and all, but should we still drink it?

  • The movie's vision of varieties of religious experience and celebrations of identity is matched by its fervent embrace of community in the shift from hatred to acceptance.

  • This cheerful small town portrait makes for an idealistic crowd-pleaser -- after all, Eureka Springs is the rumored home of healing waters
