Went to see a pre-release screening of The Grace Card tonight. Memphis Calvary Church of the Nazarene did this movie....knew several of the people in it from our TNU days! Much like Facing the Giants and Fireproof, the acting is not the focus of the movie. I did think think the story was excellent and relevant. Handles some tough topics (racism, hate, self) in a realistic manner.
I think the biggest knock I have against this movie is that it seemed to lack background noise. That causes an over focus on the actors speaking and makes it sound forced or strained, maybe stilted at times. But, I think this is the most powerful of all of the Provident releases so far.
They announced tonight that there will be three releases next year fro Provident! Excited about that!
Also, because this was a pre-release, the final edits were not done that may fix the sound issue and will make the whole thing a little tighter.
