Gavin Stone (Brett Dalton, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) is a former child star whose hard-partying ways get him in trouble, forcing him to do 200 hours of community service at a church in his hometown. Gavin pretends to be a Christian to land the part of Jesus in the church's annual Passion Play and discovers that the most important role of his life is far from Hollywood in this inspirational comedy about faith, forgiveness and second chances from the director of What If…. Also starring Neil Flynn (The Middle), D.B. Sweeney (The Cutting Edge) and WWE legend Shawn Michaels.

Redemption film has strong performance, message, weak story.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Resurrection of Gavin Stone is a faith-based comedy about a self-centered, washed-up former child actor (Brett Dalton from Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) who gradually learns how to care for someone besides himself. The film offers a valuable lesson about humility, and there's no swearing or sex and almost no drinking (though the main character had a fairly wild past and talks repeatedly about working to stay sober). One scene does show an actor portraying a crucified Jesus, covered in blood.
