Woodlawn (2015) - Movie Review
"This is what happens when God shows up”... in a Christian film. This is the first Christian film (actually first of any film) I felt compelled enough by to write a review. Simply put, this is one of the best Christian films I have ever seen in terms of production value and most importantly the spiritual content that is boldly displayed. As a Christian filmmaker myself, all to often I have seen films that lack one or the other or often both. This is not the case with Woodlawn.
help to convey the story as well. Beyond that, I highly recommend this movie due to the amazing sense of God seen onscreen, in the sermons, the players' responses and all the lives surrounding the events that took place. One of the repeated lines in the movie is “This is what happens when God shows up”. I believe that is ultimately what we need in every area of life today. I found myself inspired to share the Gospel with more boldness to everyone around me knowing anything is possible when God shows up. Don’t just take my word for it, go see this film and let me know how Woodlawn speaks to you.
Woodlawn was directed by the Erwin brothers, with screenplay written by Quinton Peeples and Jon Erwin. It was produced by Kevin Downes, Provident Films, and Pure Flix Entertainment. For more information, including local showings and the trailer, visit www.woodlawn.com.

I personally know the real Tony Nathan and his wife Johnnie, and the movie is a full and complete true portrayal of their lives. This movie should be shown to all youth groups from here to eternity.
