Tells the story of a young Greg Laurie (Joel Courtney) being raised by his struggling mother, Charlene (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) in the 1970s. Laurie and a sea of young people descend on sunny Southern California to redefine truth through all means of liberation. Inadvertently, Laurie meets Lonnie Frisbee (Jonathan Roumie), a charismatic hippie-street-preacher, and Pastor Chuck Smith (Kelsey Grammer) who have thrown open the doors of Smith’s languishing church to a stream of wandering youth. What unfolds becomes the greatest spiritual awakening in American history. Rock and roll, newfound love, and a twist of faith lead to a JESUS REVOLUTION that turns one counterculture movement into a revival that changes the world.—Lionsgate

A sudden voice told the grumpy old man , that due to old age and sloppy cheeks do have that downward antismile-smile, the heavy burden of a silent life in seniority…and whether i wanted it or not ,being close to an atheist of faith, and like a hydrophobic soil of a burn scar on a wooden hill the ,message has always washed away into the flood of neverness,never had a bite on me, thats why i usually shade away from religious film as a genre, because so many have enriched themselves on money due to their abilities of speaking among people, as also did these pastorials and clergymen back then in the ”jesus revelution” from 1967-1972…
regardless of that, i started about telling about this voice telling me to smile…and yes i did…not so much about the message which is timeless and carefree…its the cast of actors, where kelsey grammer puts on a kilogrammer or two of spiritual comedy, and the rest of the cast really sings the redemtion songs with a hippie spirit, that really shouldve had a reinescance in these days of calamity, war and globalisation…
so a well made film about real people that caught and fed people and gave the lost a second, third and so on chance in life. This is a film that will make my wife fly high on emotions, and her grumpy old chap isnt too far behind. A must see if youre a christian, and also a must see for people that loves good films. A recommend.
