Free In Deed — Trailer


added: Fri, Aug 11th '17

British actor David Harewood, perhaps best known for starring on the first two seasons of "Homeland" and who currently plays Martian Manhunter on the CW superhero series "Supergirl," delivers what looks to be a powerful and compelling performance in the trailer for "Free In Deed."

Based on actual events, the film, which has earned a number of festival awards since premiering at the 2015 Venice Film Festival, explores the inner-city world of storefront churches. Harewood plays Abe Wilkins, a down-on-his-luck Pentecostal minister who faces his toughest challenge when he meets a desperate mother and her young emotionally troubled son.

Shot in a documentary-like style, "Free In Deed," which is written and directed by up-and-comer Jake Mahaffy (you can check out his short films on Vimeo), has won the public endorsement of actor Danny Glover and the late, great director Jonathan Demme.

The film co-stars Edwina Findley Dickerson (TV's Shots Fired, HBO's Treme) and will be released on September 8th.

Set in the provocative and distinctive world of converted storefront churches and based on actual events, FREE IN DEED depicts one man’s attempts to perform a miracle. When a single mother on the brink of profound desperation brings her tormented young son to church for healing, a lonely Pentecostal minister is not only forced to confront the seemingly incurable illness of the child, but his own inescapable demons as well. And the more he prays, the more things seem to spiral out of his control.
