Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Cast: Mimi Michaels,Rance Howard,Richard Rossi

Director(s): Richard Rossi


Year: 2006

Rating: PG

Follow the turbulent life of Aimee McPherson (Mimi Michaels), a real-life evangelist whose moving sermons and convincing miracles made her a huge celebrity. This engaging biopic looks at Aimee's personal struggles, especially with her family and her three husbands. Writer and director Richard Rossi pays special attention to Aimee's mysterious disappearance and subsequent reappearance in 1926, which caused a sensation at the time.

Richard Rossi acted as Director,Writer,Producer and lead male actor in this story of Sister Aimee and he has done a terrific job on very low funds to get this film made. Mimi Michaels does a outstanding job at playing Sister Aimee from her teens to 40's. Rance Howard,father of Ron Howard and Clint Howard is also a highlight of the film as Aimee's father. Rossi has done a fantastic job at telling the story of a woman with a need for human touch and her spiritually. The lack of a big budget seems to help this film more than hurt it and that has to be a compliment to all involved. I love how this movie portrays that every woman just wants to be loved, even a spiritual icon like Sister Aimee Semple McPherson. I would compare this to another similar film "The Apostle", except Sister Aimee doesn't pack the commercial punch but here that is a good thing and makes this a must see for anyone that loves cinema. Released by Maverick Home Entertainment. **** Out Of *****
