COME SUNDAY (Sundance International Film Festival Park City, Salt Lake City, Provo, Sundance Resort, Utah, USA 2018)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

Come Sunday supports itself on a well-written script and good performance by Chiwetel Ejiofor. While this is not a new story, it documents the estrangement that occurs when one attempts to establish ‘new’ ideas from the bottom up.

Storyline

Minister Carlton Pearson (Chiwetel Ejiofor) re-evaluates Pentecostal church dogma and endeavors to teach his newfound beliefs within his church.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This movie retells the age-old challenges involved in the dilemma of believing one has discovered a higher truth that is not acceptable within one’s peer group. It’s one of the better Christian films on the market and rises to the challenge of telling its story well.
