Faith-based films have undergone somewhat of a renaissance in recent months. Christian film studios have always catered to their fan base by releasing a plethora of religious films around Easter, but they’ve never been serious critical darlings…or major box office hits. However, that trend began to change with I Can Only Imagine, a movie based on the creation of the award-winning song of the same name. Solid critical response has led to serious box office returns with the film nearing $100 million domestically on a $7 million budget. Naturally, it was only a matter of time before Netflix got involved with distributing high-profile movies that handle religious material, leading to the release of Come Sunday this weekend.
Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Martin Sheen, Jason Segel, Lakeith Stanfield, and Danny Glover, Come Sunday premiered at Sundance earlier this year, hoping to become another religion-based hit.
The following review will be spoiler free.
