A suspense-filled movie wrestling with themes of destiny, God, and redemption comes to DVD today. The film "Crossroad" enjoyed a limited theatrical debut in November of last year. It weaves a story of ordinary, seemingly unrelated people who witness the intimate power of God in a hostage situation with lives hanging in the balance.
Fueled by revenge, Michael (Philip Bullock) sets up a meeting at an out-of-the-way diner with the man who murdered his wife and child six years earlier. But his plans of killing him come to a sudden standstill when two gunmen burst in to rob the place. Michael takes matters into his own hands, shooting a robber and holding the entire diner hostage until the man he really wants to target arrives. In the midst of all these events, Michael finds an unlikely ally in Don (Kim Estes), a devout Christian who believes God is going to help him in his endeavor. While Michael battles with his faith, the hostages begin to find extraordinary connections between them. "Crossroad" is an emotional and inspiring story of redemption, forgiveness and the ultimate realization of God's grace at work in every life.
Spot On Media’s Crossroad marks the feature film debut for award-winning director Shervin Youssefian. From executive producers Youssefian, David Dginguerian, Danny Simonzad and Amy Weber, "Crossroad" features Philip Bulcock ("28 Weeks Later", "Red Tails"), Kim Estes ("The Closer", "House") and Weber ("Port Charles", "CSI").
Imagine a faith film with all the loose ends not tied up. "Crossroad" marks the appearance of a different kind of Christian movie. A Christian ensemble drama where lives intersect around a tragedy. It’s a clear presentation of the Gospel and an unapologetic weaving of spiritual mystery in everyday life. And at the same time, it’s a thriller. Shots fired. People hurt (and not always the ones you expect). First-time feature film director and the film’s writer Shervin Youssefian takes viewers on a zig-zagging journey through one man’s tragic loss, the quest for revenge and a realization that nothing is ever just as it seems.
Although rated PG-13 for violence and thematic themes by the MPAA, the movie received five Doves from the Dove Awards.
Running time: 1 hour, 35 minutes.
