“Paul, Apostle of Christ” Coming to Canadian Theatres March 23, 2018
Affirm Films brings to vivid life on screen the epic story of Paul, the man who went from persecutor of the church to its most powerful and important proponent. Paul suffers alone in a Roman prison, awaiting his execution under Emperor Nero. Mauritius, the ambitious prison prefect, can hardly see what threat this broken man poses. Once he was Saul of Tarsus, the high-ranking and brutal killer of Christians. Now his faith rattles Rome. At great risk, Luke the Physician visits the aged Paul to comfort and tend to him—and to question, to transcribe and to smuggle out Paul’s letters to the growing community of believers. Amid Nero’s inhuman persecution, these men and women will spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and change the world. Andrew Hyatt directs, Jim Caviezel stars and James Faulkner plays the title role of Paul

Chase Morgan’s parents named him Chase in hopes that he would pursue something, be a man of action. Instead he’s ended up the opposite. But in his senior year of high school, someone comes along who turns that around. Grácia has charisma, intelligence, character—all the things Chase and his best friend OB admire. She also has a story they know nothing about. It moves her to reach out to Bobbi, a classmate in trouble from a dating relationship gone too far.

The outcome is respect and conflict, reconciliation and redemption.
