Near Top-50 Finish for "Faith, Hope & Love"
This Christian romantic comedy is making the most of its minimal distribution footprint.
Faith, Hope & Love, from writer/producer/director and actor Robert Krantz, nabbed 53rd place at the box office over the weekend, bringing in a bit more than $10,000, according to The Numbers. That may not sound so impressive for a film going into its fourth week in release, but it played in just eight theaters.
That tiny distribution number is a real shame, because this is a fun movie, as we mentioned in our review, and it is truly worthy of a much bigger audience. Krantz's character is a widower who enters a dance competition together with a dance instructor played by Peta Murgatroyd, a professional dancer in her big screen debut. They are both overcoming emotional trauma and their relationship builds slowly. The film is amusing - as every romcom must be - at times tender, and it has a strong Christian message throughout.
According to its website, Faith, Hope & Love will be in 29 theaters this coming weekend. If you have a chance, we recommend you go see it.
