Salvation Boulevard (2011) (C)
"A truly appealing cast..."
Tom Keogh, The Seattle Times.
Carl (Greg Kinnear) is a former follower - not of Christ, but of the Grateful Dead - who has since become "found" in Pastor Dan Day's (Pierce Brosnan) Evangelical community, serving as one of the preacher's great examples of spiritual and moral transformation. But Carl's new belief system is turned upside down when he witnesses a sinful act that Pastor Dan's doughy henchman (Jim Gaffigan) aims to cover up. Carl finds himself on the run, torn between Honey (Marisa Tomei), a security guard who still follows the Dead and partakes in those pleasures, and his militantly devout wife (Jennifer Connelly) and her daughter, who is herself on the eve of taking a vow of sexual purity. Salvation Boulevard is a modern comedy based on the book of the same title by Larry Beinhart (Wag The Dog). -- (C) IFC Films, 2011, USA.
