Movie Summary

Director:
Unknown
Released:
2005
Rating:
R
Screen Door Jesus is a 2003 religious drama comedy directed by Kirk Davis. Davis adapted the film from a series of short stories written by Christopher Cook. The film is set in a small East Texas town that is dealing with the aftermath of a sighting of the face of Jesus within the screen door of the front porch of an old woman, Mother Harper (played by Cynthia Dorn). Questions of faith, race, politics, and belief are brought up as the woman's curious neighbors begin to flock to the mysterious screen door and take sides over what it means. The story spreads and the media starts coming to the town to view the miraculous screen door. Some are coming for guidance, some for healing, and some for just entertainment. A motley crew forms around the screen door, including the town's sex driven mayor, a know it all security guard, the sneaky town seductress, the white banker and black rough neck, and more. What will happen in the end and who will be changed, and for better or worse?moreless
