CFDb Review!

WOW! What a film! This is one you DO NOT want to miss and this is one that you can show Christians or non-Christians. It really makes you think, has a great twist. We were privileged to view this at the Pan Pacific Film Festival.  Check out the CFDb interview with Joe Estevez & Check out the CFDb Movie Review.  Recent interview with Jenn Gotzon and  John Schneider.

Chosen (Formerly titled, ‘Doonby’)

Film Description:

Sam Doonby, a mysterious, handsome drifter gets off a Greyhound bus in a small Texas town and finds work at Leroy’s Country/Blues Bar where his great musical talents make him very popular, especially with Laura, the beautiful but spoiled daughter of successful doctor Cyrus Reaper.

Sam always seems to be in the right place at the right time to avert disasters befalling the town and its people until suspicion and jealousy drive folks to ask who he is and where he comes from. Even Laura starts to question him so now he disappears as quickly as he came and things start to go badly wrong. His rejection results in terrible shocks for the whole town, not least for the doctor and his family as Cyrus’ past comes back to haunt him.
