True Believer was a delightful movie. I didn’t know what to expect going in but with it premiering on the Sunday of the Chattanooga Film Festival I knew that it would be the perfect time to see it. This is the kind of movie that we need right now. This is an incredibly positive and hopeful movie, which seems to be fighting against the way the world is right now.
Alana Purcell wrote and directed True Believer as her feature directorial debut. The way she crafted the story and was able to translate it to screen is amazing. Ferelith Young and Vincent Jefferds anchor an absolutely fantastic cast. Adrianne Duncan, Nick Mancini, Jacqui Grilli, Aidan Milsted, and Steffen Myers support them. Everything about the cast is pitch perfect. You could not wish for better line delivery or chemistry between members of the cast.
True Believer is an optimistic movie that will brighten your day. I was delighted throughout the entire movie. There are moments that will make you laugh hard and they happen often. It was an interesting change from the rest of the movies that I’ve watched during the film festival. I give True Believer 9.5 photo albums out of 10.
