  • The often difficult squaring of religious fervor and sexual longing receives poignant, powerful treatment in "The Revival" ...

  • But it is a worthwhile one, showcasing a pair of deeply gifted leading men and a promising new talent behind the camera.

  • Less a self-acceptance narrative, and more of an exploration of one man's crisis of faith, Samuel Bret Williams' screenplay avoids giving easy resolutions to the character's problems - making for an unrelentingly harrowing viewing experience.

  • Holds a lot of potential. However, the conclusion will infuriate a lot of gay audience members, and the lack of scale and cinematic flair makes it a trudge to watch.

  • This drama is sharply well written and played, with knowing observations about the collision between religion and culture.

  • [It] doesn't just capture the community dynamics of a southern church and the contradictory pressures, he allows Eli to be seen not as a hypocrite but someone who has genuinely tried to serve their faith and not their heart.
