An Act Of Love

Directed by Scott Sheppard
86 min

Emotionally powerful and ultimately uplifting, this film follows the tribulations of Pennsylvania minister Frank Schaefer, who faces condemnation from the United Methodist Church, the second largest Protestant denomination, when he officiates his son’s same-sex wedding.. Director Scott Sheppard presents a lovely portrait of a family whose bond becomes even stronger during this personal battle while sensitively exploring the concerns of a mainstream church struggling to deal with cultural shifts. It’s compelling from beginning to end.
