This is an interesting film, we definitely liked certain parts of this film and loved learning about the elephant sighs. That was the most powerful part of the film. Check out the CFDb blog about this film. CFDb Blog!
A Life-Affirming Comedy of Faith! Based on the Hit Play, Starring Ed Asner and John Cariani.
Includes Printable, Faith Based Study Guide!
After moving to a small, rural town, uptight Joel Bixby, is invited by an agreeable new acquaintance to join a group of townsmen who meet in a ramshackle room at the edge of town.
Normally a loner, Joel finds himself enamored by boisterous, fast food connoisseur Leo Applegatep and reluctantly agrees to go.
Unknowingly the “replacement” for a beloved member who recently passed away, Joel meets the group’s other surviving members and is swept up in their strange lives, but struggles with their secretive purpose for gathering … until he realizes each of them is as lost as himself.
Gleeful Dink Jack Kehler, who deeply loves his bald wife, is “in touch” with his feminine side; Perry, a former minister, is suffering a crisis of faith; and volatile Nick, who lost his job and family, also seeks a miracle.
As the men grapple with their worries and unraveling lives, Joel finally learns their mysterious purpose.
(Special family friendly edition for the Christian market includes a printable study guide, “Biblical Perspectives,” for Sunday school classes, fellowship groups and Christian book clubs.)
