Mark your calendars for September 26 and prepare to attend the most honest, but edgy Christian feature film about love, sex and marriage: The Song. As a creative adaptation of Solomon’s wisdom (taken directly from Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, and Proverbs), The Song speaks forthrightly about the bliss, weaknesses, hardships, and steadfast loyalty that often accompany marriage. Like the contemplative writings of King Solomon, the film doesn’t pull any punches. Its occasional voice-over narration of Bible passages brings complexity to the story, and Solomon’s inner struggles come to life on the screen.
Jed, a musician living in the shadow of his country music star father, meets the girl of his dreams at a small gig in a local vineyard. After the two marry, Jed writes a song that becomes an instant hit. But Jed’s success might just become his demise. Before long, his demanding career and a surprisingly tempting co-performer take him farther and farther from home, both in body and soul.
Renowned family therapist, author, and radio host Dr. Greg Smalley, says, “This movie honestly portrays what is good and messy and even sexy in marriage, better than any faith-based movie I’ve seen. You'll see people you know--even yourself--in this story of real-life consequences, and grace. I love it.”
If you’re looking for a film that offers complex characters, true-to-life plot lines, great music, and a challenge to both sides in a marriage relationship, check out The Song in theaters on September 26. For more information and to sign up for updates, visit www.thesongmovie.com
