Film Continues to Gain National Support Leading up to Sept. 21st Debut Theatrical
Los Angeles, Calif. (Sept. 17, 2012) The buzz is continuing to build with Harbinger Media Partners debut release, Unconditional as opening weekend draws near on September 21st. Starring Golden Globe nominated actor Michael Ealy and Lynn Collins, the major motion picture film is already causing a chatter among critics in the industry.
"UNCONDITIONAL is wholesome, redemptive, uplifting family entertainment." --MovieGuide®
"This movie actually prompted me to action. My kids and I started a company/ministry which has been riddled with technological issues over the last year. But this film helped make up my mind to do whatever it takes to get that program back on track and help at-risk children. I can't say that about any other movie I've seen in the last few years."- Christian Cinema
“Go check out this film. Be moved, be inspired. Find love, find forgiveness. But take action and hope into your community. Little eyes are watching, and little hands are waiting, for someone to recognize their need and respond.” -HollywoodJesus.com
“Unconditional sets itself apart with quality filmmaking and redemptive storytelling delivered with authenticity.”-ChristianityToday.com
Written and directed by Brent McCorkle, the film tells the story of Sam (Collins), a woman whose storybook marriage is ripped away from her by a senseless act of violence; and “Papa” Joe (Ealy), her oldest friend who leads Sam on a journey back toward unconditional love.
Along with film critics, pastors and bishops from mega churches across the country are voicing their excitement for the compelling drama and encouraging their congregations to support the theatrical production.
“Unconditional is a 21st century parable that packages the gospel in a post-modern message about character, courage & challenge. It will push the viewer to serve to share and to never assume!” - Pastor Jamal Bryant
“Unconditional is one of those Must See Movies. This movie is sure to wake up any sleeping Giants or dying Dreams in your life.” - Bishop Neil C. Ellis
“This great motion picture has left me encouraged and motivated to share the unconditional love of God to both the young and old of my own community.”- Bishop Vaughn McLaughlin
“Seldom is a movie able to pull off the often arduous task of being both entertaining and meaningful at the same time, Unconditional does just that! You will laugh, cry and leave the theater with and overwhelming conviction to go do some good. I’d take my whole family to see it; especially my children!”--R.A. Vernon, D.Min
In support of the film, the real-life Papa Joe Bradford has been sharing his story and how it feels seeing his life on the big screen.
