Just launched – Robert, a small town priest questioning his purpose in life, seizes the chance to finally make a difference when his estranged ailing brother shows up seeking help.
When Robert discovers the “help” he has offered him is being used for a much darker purpose, he is caught between his belief system and the need to make things “right.”
Longtime friend Aaron Goldstein, who is producing, brough the treatment to me some time ago, when at first reading I had reservations about it - with the Episcopalian in me thinking, “do I really want to do this?”
…And I nearly didn’t. For as sick and twisted as my own sense of humor may be at times, this one had me think twice. I read the treatment, ‘very funny. Though perhaps something I might pass on I thought.
…And once the script came through, it became all the more funny. Still though, ‘wasn’t quite sure. At this point I agreed to make a composite of how the filmsite might appear and flow, using a local church, myself and a neighbor in placement of the main characters.
When the dailies came through however, it was hysterical and I knew we were sitting on a solid comedy and took the leap and agreed to sign on. To have not done so would have been equally frustrating considering that bottom line it’s for friends. Aaron’s on board as producer, Jackson is directing, Will’s on as producer and featured character. Even Alex has a role.
And the final version is now live at www.forchristssakemovie.com as we go to the festivals.
