World Premiere for "Indivisible"
A red-carpet event in Memphis launches this faith-based film about a US Army chaplain and his struggle to save his marriage and family.
In keeping with the military flavor of the picture, a Navy color guard presented the US flag for the national anthem as nearly a thousand people came out to the historic Orpheum theater in downtown. Memphis got the honor of hosting the premiere since the David Evans-directed movie was shot in the area.
Indivisible is a true story based on the life of Darren Turner and his wife, Heather, and the trials they faced to save their marriage after his deployment during the war in Iraq. They are played in the film by Justin Bruening and Sarah Drew, formerly long-time co-stars on Grey's Anatomy.
Taking a page out of the Kendrick Brothers' movie-making playbook, Evans' home church, Calvary Church of the Nazarene, is also the production company behind the picture. And they kept the production budget low, too: $2.7 million.
Rev. Lynn Holmes, the church's pastor - and CEO of Calvary Productions - was on hand for the premiere. He asked for God to bless the theaters that will show the movie and he gave thanks.
"We're here to honor the work that God has enabled a little church in Memphis, Tennessee to produce."
Indivisible is set for nationwide release on October 26th. In the meantime, here's the trailer to whet your appetite.
