Billing itself as “the faith-based Crash,” the new film I Am opens in more than 2,000 churches this Sunday — 10/10/10, an apt release date for a story based on the Ten Commandments.
The drama, set in Los Angeles, features 10 disparate stories ultimately connecting together — similar to the model and ensemble cast in Crash. Characters include “a desperate heiress, a beautiful reporter, a vengeful detective, a charismatic district attorney,” and more, each wrestling with one of the 10 commandments.
The film was made by Mariners Church in Irvine, California. Sunday night’s screenings will be free, and the film will release to DVD on November 2.
