Releasing Good Friday, ‘Father Stu’ with Mark Wahlberg is a Christian film based on a true story. And as you watch the inspiring movie trailer, may it remind you that God will never give up on you!
‘Father Stu' stars Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson, Jacki Weaver and Teresa Ruiz. On the official website, the film is described as "an unflinchingly honest, funny and ultimately uplifting drama about a lost soul who finds his purpose in a most unexpected place."
Mark Wahlberg plays Stuart Long, or Father Stu, a former boxer taken out of the sport by injury. Now, he spends his days making ends meet as a cashier at the supermarket while pursuing a career in Hollywood. Then, "he meets Carmen (Teresa Ruiz), a Catholic Sunday school teacher who seems immune to his bad-boy charm. Determined to win her over, the longtime agnostic starts going to church to impress her."
Just as things seem to be looking up for Stuart, a motorcycle accident threatens to change everything.
