Higher Ground Trailer

"You cannot let sexual chemistry burn out!" Sony Pictures Classics has debuted the official trailer for Higher Ground, the religions indie directed by actress Vera Farmiga, who also stars in it. The film has been called "a rich, sprawling, uplifting, disquieting, at once demystifying and mysterious drama about the life and love and heartbreak and faith of one woman in America who's an evangelical Christian" and received mostly positive reviews at Sundance this year. It doesn't look as funny or engaging as I thought it would, but I might still check this out. The cast includes Joshua Leonard, John Hawkes and Donna Murphy.

Vera Farmiga is one beautiful woman, would really like to see this, it actually seems at least from the trailer to promote a positive side of Christianity, for a few people I know it has been incredibly helpful, for some it hasn't so much. Steven Doyle a guy I used to know thought I was the devil and fought a holy war against me. His war against the devil(me) consisted of spraypainting pentagrams in his parents living room before setting fire to their house resulting in him getting sectioned under the mental health act for for the 3rd time.Religion isn't for everyone, he eh. I was wondering why Vera Farmiga looks so amazing but it's her eyes, they properly suck you in. Anyways, I'll stop dribbling now.

Finally a film that might not portray Christians as crazy people.
