An eclectic cast of characters intertwines and collides around themes of faith, religion and race in a small East Texas town. Screen Door Jesus tells the story of the church-going, but not exactly God-fearing, town's folk who wake up one morning to discover the image of Jesus on Old Mother Harper's screen door. With media and crowds gathering around the phenomenon, and Jesus staring everyone straight in the face, it's time for people to take sides.Written by
If Jesus has super powers, he could make a robot with a soul.
The stars aligned just right: a catchy title, it's in Texas, it's funny, and there is no football game on worth watching. So why not try a film that won three awards at the Hampton's Film Festival. Who knew they even had one? Now, things started off interesting with a "God Hates fags" group showing up to protest, but it really got going when Jesus was discovered on a screen door.
I am not going to comment on the actors, as I don't know any of the. I do, however, want to see more of Texan Scarlett McAlister. Now, she made things interesting (with her bright smile) in every appearance, even as things were developing elsewhere.
There are a lot of religious beliefs explored in this film, and it will cause you to question your own. It was interesting.
