‘A Strange Brand of Happy’ Coming to a Theater Near You?!
Rebel Pilgrims have made a movie called A Strange Brand of Happy that is coming to theaters nationwide on Sept. 13. The movie is a faith-friendly romantic comedy starting Rebecca St. James and Academy Award winner Shirley Jones. It’s a fun, funny comedy with a simple message that God can be found when we look for him.
Synopsis: A Strange Brand of Happy – After losing his job David is pushed by his roommate to hire a life coach named Joyce. A decision aided in part by how pretty David finds this life coach, but also a desire to get unstuck in life. When Joyce invites him to join the volunteer group she takes to a retirement home David discovers his manipulative ex-boss, William, is part of the group and interested in Joyce as well.
The motley crew of retirees instantly recognize the potential for drama with this love triangle. A wily old man goads the boys to battle for Joyce. As a result, David begrudgingly agrees to go to an open mic night Joyce holds for people to ponder the existence of God. It’s there that a poet says a few things that cause David’s head to tilt and move him a little further down the path of finding himself. The problem is the ungentlemanly competition he’s still in with William. When that turns extreme, David makes a decision that nearly ruins his dual-level progress with Joyce. He’s then forced to turn to the only community he has left, the ragtag band of retirees who point him in the direction of true north.
Hollywood doesn’t tend to support movies like this. The film is currently slated for 44 cities, but the distributor will add more cities if we can show that the movie has grassroots support. So, if you’d like more movies like this to be in theaters nationwide please join me and do the following:
Go to Seatzy today and reserve a block of tickets for you and some friends. You don’t pay anything now, but will be charged through Amazon in September for the tickets.
