Joyce's Review of Raw Faith
The trailer gives little clue to this story. It's a documentary but in the style more of a docu-drama. A story about a female minister who seems very religious in a robe and high pulpit feels like it would not be a story I'd be interested in, but I was curious. The minister tells her life story, which is not necessarily one you might suspect. She's a southern lady who left it all for a liberal religion. She had to keep it all a secret from her congregants. During the 2-yrs. of the making of the movie, something unexpected happens. It is what really makes the movie captivating and endearing. I was deeply touched by this story.
