Filled with music and hope, this film follows the creation of the Jesus movement in the ’60s that brought together Christian ministries with the love and music of the hippies. It’s an uncritical look at complex real people, well-acted by Kelsey Grammer, Jonathan Roumie, Joel Courtney, and others. It’s the kind of movie that can lift up your soul and set your heart singing. It’s brightness and hope is just right for the dawning of spring. The film currently has a 99% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes.
“This drama is almost certain to energize and inspire the Christian crowd, but it’s also likely to captivate those who tend to avoid films about religion. That’s both because it’s very well made and because there’s an honesty and accountability here.” -Tara McNamara, Common Sense Media
“If there is to be an artistic gateway to a new era of nationwide empathy and tolerance, one could do far worse than Jesus Revolution.” -Ian Simmons, Kicking the Seat
“One of the most appealing faith-based big-screen entertainments in a while, polished and persuasive without getting too preachy.” -Dennis Harvey, Variety
“Jesus Revolution artfully depicts the beginning of a movement that continues to thrive today. I see so much ugliness, hate, and violence on screen. It was a pleasure to leave the theater with a smile.” -Julian Roman, MovieWeb
“Co-directors Jon Erwin, and Brent McCorkle deliver the first feel-good movie of 2023 with mass appeal that just happens to feature quite a few mass baptisms. First-rate performances, humor, and plenty of inspiration without preaching.” -Joe Friar, Fort Worth Report
“It’s an uplifting story with some fine music, though it does file off a few rough edges and sanitize some of its characters’ human frailties” -Chris Knight, National Post
“There’s a good chance it’ll speak to those whose faith needs recharged or to those who simply need a reminder that people from different camps can come together in meaningful ways. Now there’s a message that we certainly need today.” -Keith Garlington, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
Jesus Revolution will open Friday, March 24, and play at 7:30 Friday, Saturday, and Monday, plus 2:00 Sunday.
