Extraordinarily powerful and box office success

Faith-based drama deals with marital discord, infidelity.
September 3, 2015
Another strong inspirational cinematic experience from the Kendrick brothers.

Badly-acted, poorly written, a hackneyed sermon that (barely) preaches to the choir.

One of the more entertaining and relatable faith-based films to hit the big screen in recent times
