‘Jesus Revolution” Faith Based Film Releases Under Intense Real World Revival
JESUS REVOLUTION is an accurate, compressed portrait of the hippies and Vietnam War protestors who find Jesus because God calls several Christians to tell them about Jesus Christ. The plot is propelled by a love story between an impoverished young man, Greg Laurie, with an alcoholic mother, and Cathe, a beautiful young woman from a wealthy Southern California family. Cathe becomes burned out by the drug scene. She brings Greg to Pastor Chuck Smith’s growing church in Newport Beach. Lonnie Frisbee, a young hippie preacher, has convinced Chuck to open his church to the young, disaffected people who’ve been drawn to Southern California.
JESUS REVOLUTION is incredibly well made and captivating. It has many scenes with jeopardy and inspiring, well-written presentations of Jesus Christ’s Gospel. MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution because the movie accurately depicts the drug scene from an impartial viewpoint that might attract younger children. The movie also shows Greg Laurie’s mother’s constant drunkenness and philandering. The immoral behavior is part of the true stories in JESUS REVOLUTION, which, to an amazing degree, have been made into an exciting, cohesive, uplifting movie.
