JOSHUA is a Christian drama directed by Jon Purdy. Joshua is based on the first novel of Jospeh Girzone’s wildly successful Joshua series which has sold over 40 million copies all over the world.

The world can also be divided into two camps: those who will watch Joshua reverently and gratefully, and those who will not touch it with a 10-foot pole. The reverent probably own Joseph F. Girzone’s bestselling novel about a mysterious but friendly loner who shows up in a small American town and blesses each life he touches. Whites and blacks, Catholics, Protestants, and Jews will work side by side as newly recognized brethren; an estranged couple will get to the bottom of to save their marriage; the lonely and disconnected will embrace and be embraced by community; and so on. The message–the healing power of Christ’s love–is beyond reproach, the intentions of the filmmakers entirely benign, but there isn’t one whit of dramatic tension or narrative complication to any of it. The cast is stronger than usual in such religious projects (Tony Goldwyn, Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham, Giancarlo Giannini as the Pope), but no one has a prayer with a script that posits the hero’s Christhood on the truth that 12 people show up for his going-away dinner. –Richard T.
