‘Follow-Up’ To ‘Jesus Revolution’ Gets Some Huge Star Power

Academy Award-winning actress Hilary Swank has once again graced the big screen in a powerful and moving role, this time in the true story “Ordinary Angels.” The film, produced by Kingdom Story Company and Lionsgate, tells the story of a woman who finds her purpose in life by rallying her community to save a young girl’s life. Swank, known for her talent in portraying real-life characters, is once again using her platform to spread a message of hope and service, which is much needed in today’s society.

The red carpet premiere of “Ordinary Angels” was attended by a star-studded cast, including Hilary Swank, Alan Ritchson, Nancy Travis, Tamala Jones, and more.

The film follows the life of Sharon Stevens, played by Swank, a struggling hairdresser who is dealing with her own battles with alcoholism and estrangement from her son. When she reads about Michelle, a young girl in need of a liver transplant in the local newspaper, she uses all of her energy to raise funds for the surgery.

Michelle’s father, Ed, played by the talented Alan Ritchson, is not too keen on accepting the help. He is a gruff roofer, who is battling his own personal loss after the death of his wife. Undeterred, Sharon continues to rally her community, with the help of a local church, to ensure that Michelle receives the life-saving treatment she needs. Along the way, Sharon also works to overcome her struggles and find a sense of purpose in serving others.

For Hilary Swank, the story of “Ordinary Angels” hit close to home, especially since she became a mother last year. She highlighted the message of the film, which is to show empathy and kindness towards one another, regardless of our struggles or differences. She hopes that the film will encourage viewers to ask for help when needed and remind them that they are not alone in their struggles.

“Ordinary Angels” is directed by Jon Gunn, known for his work on “Case for Christ.” The film is the latest project from the Erwin brothers, known for their successful faith-based films “Jesus Revolution” and “I Can Only Imagine.” The Erwin brothers, along with their production company Kingdom Story Company, are committed to telling uplifting stories that showcase God’s faithfulness, even in the midst of human brokenness.

In an interview with The Christian Post, Andy Erwin emphasized the importance of embracing struggles and tensions in life to get to a place of hope and redemption. He explained that this is what sets “Ordinary Angels” apart from the stereotype of “cheesy Christian movies.” The film showcases the power of making a difference in one person’s life and being an “ordinary angel” to those in need.

The Erwin brothers hope that “Ordinary Angels” will serve as a reminder to people of their calling and purpose in life. They want to show that even ordinary, flawed individuals can make a difference and bring hope to others. By showing the church as a safe place where anyone can seek help, the film also aims to change the negative perception of the church in society.

“Ordinary Angels” is now playing in theaters, and it has already received a positive response from audiences. The film was also screened in churches across the U.S., and pastors have expressed their excitement about the movie. As the film continues to be released in theaters, the Erwin brothers hope that it will reach even bigger audiences and continue to spread its message of hope and service.

“Ordinary Angels” serves as a beacon of light, reminding viewers of the power of empathy, kindness, and service. With a talented cast, a powerful story, and a strong message, this film has the potential to make a great impact on society and inspire people to look out for one another. As Hilary Swank said, “we all have to make sure that we’re slowing down for a second and looking at our fellow humans wherever we go and just acting with a little more kindness. We can find purpose in serving others.”
