Stumped.

I just received this summary of a movie coming out on DVD. I’ve blocked out the particulars, because I’m more interested in the film’s plot structure…

[INSERT MOVIE TITLE HERE] is a powerful coming of age drama about [MAIN CHARACTER], the talented daughter of a stern preacher. When [MAIN CHARACTER] leaves home to pursue love in all the wrong places, and to seek stardom through a traveling gospel show, she discovers heartbreak, hurt, and the loss of everything she’s left behind.

Broken and abandoned, will she find her way home to her father, or will her pride and ego leave her with an empty life?

Golly, that question at the end has me stumped. What will she do? I may lose sleep over this. Anybody want to make a guess?

About Jeffrey Overstreet

He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    I do hope “Butterfly Kisses” is in the soundtrack.
