LOS ANGELES, Aug. 9 /Christian Newswire/ -- Does anyone ever travel too far down the road of life to be truly forgiven? A new feature-length movie from family-friendly filmmaker Pure Flix Entertainment offers a dramatic and compelling answer to this burning question, in the process deals with pressing issues like abortion, homosexuality, pre-marital sex -- and the true meaning of faith.
Set for release October 6th, Hidden Secrets is a colorful and compelling account of love, friendship, sorrow, regret, conviction, conversion -- and ultimately, faith. With a star-studded cast that includes John Schneider (television’s “Smallville” and “Dukes of Hazzard”), Tracy Melchior (from daytime TV’s “The Bold and the Beautiful”), David A.R. White (“Mercy Streets” and “Melrose Place”), and Christian recording artist Rachel Lampa, Hidden Secrets tells the story of a young man whose surprise encounter with a painful past opens the door to healing and renewed faith for himself and those he loves.
Joining a group of childhood friends for the hometown funeral of his best friend, Jeremy finds himself caught between his new fiancé and an old flame that still burns deep within his heart. Forced to face his humiliating fall from youth pastor to college party man, Jeremy discovers that he isn’t the only one hiding a dark secret – or in need of mercy and forgiveness.
Ted Baehr of MovieGuide calls Hidden Secrets “compelling,” emphasizing that the dialogue never becomes preachy or didactic. Byron Jones of Pure Flix Entertainment noted that the film’s producers took great care to ensure that the plot and dialogue would have strong appeal both to viewers with strong faith as well as to those struggling with issues of faith and forgiveness. “Our goal was to produce a movie that would inspire, encourage, and challenge audiences members whatever their level of faith,” said Jones. “Those who have previewed Hidden Secrets confirm that it succeeds on that front, in addition to being an entertaining, compelling story.”
Susan Zahn, an expert in faith and family media, noted that Hidden Secrets is a movie that will entertain audiences while compelling them to think. “There’s humor, there’s drama, there’s a story here that keeps you engaged,” said Zahn. “But when the lights come back up, you’ll want to talk about what you’ve just experienced – and how the issues touch your own life.”
