“The Mulligan” starring Eric Close and Pat Boone and “Miracle at Manchester” starring Kory Getman and Eddie McClintock lead the new releases on Pure Flix streaming in April, arriving April 1 and March 31 respectively. Pure Flix, which features a variety of faith family content, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sony Pictures Entertainment, drawing on Sony’s world-class technology and partnering with the storytelling strength of AFFIRM Films.
Close spoke to Reel Faith when “The Mulligan” released theatrically last year, explaining why the golf-inspired title applied to its spiritual content:
“In life, while there are rules, we do get second chances,” he said. “A lot of people feel when they mess up in their lives that there’s no hope. Those people carry a lot of shame or guilt, and never try to reconcile their mistakes. While we have to pay for the consequences of our choices, there’s also a chance for redemption. That’s why Jesus died on the cross, to pay for our mistakes, or sins. And all we have to do is believe that and ask for forgiveness and get a ‘mulligan’ in trying to turn a new leaf or have a second chance to make things right the next time around.”
