Movie Review: All Saints, directed by Steve Gomer

Four Stars

 
“Pray for God to send help.” “Isn’t that supposed to be you?”

 
Based-on-a-true-story movie about a failing Episcopal church in Tennessee who took in a population of Karen refugees, who’d fled persecution in Myanmar. The lives of more than the congregation and the Karen were transformed.

Good production values, though it has a made-for-television feel. Good acting and plot points. The faith elements are appropriate to the story.

Many of the Karen refugees were played by themselves.
