In a culture where commitment, marriage and family are increasingly devalued and deconstructed to suit individual desires, Faith Driven Consumers will find THE SONG to be a breath of fresh air that celebrates marital passion and love in a raw—yet fresh—way that’s authentic and relatable. Opening in theaters nationwide on September 26th, this romantic drama is produced by City on a Hill, written and directed by Richard Ramsey (Gods at War) and stars relative newcomers Alan Powell as Jed King, Ali Faulkner as Rose Jordan King and Caitlin Nicol-Thomas as Shelby Bale.
Inspired by the biblical Song of Solomon, THE SONG is a modern-day, poetic retelling of the search for meaning and purpose. And the film’s music-driven storyline will resonate deeply with fans of the Americana, Blue Grass and Country genres. More importantly, THE SONG offers an inspiring, true-to-life depiction of the intimate joys and struggles of marriage that will challenge viewers to take stock of their own priorities and relationships in the face of alluring, fleshly temptations and delights.
Overall Faith and/or Biblical Relevance
With narration directly from the writings of Solomon and timeless characters that bring the books of Ecclesiastes and Proverbs to life—echoing the reality that “there’s nothing new under the sun”—THE SONG shares profound and compelling biblical truths about love, wisdom and folly in ways that will resonate with believers and nonbelievers alike. And while the Church has largely abdicated its responsibility to teach the generations about godly sex and faith, THE SONG navigates these subjects head on—helping to show the way forward to both a Church and wider culture that has become increasingly adrift on the sea of postmodern subjectivity and revisionism.
The Song of Solomon is often referred to as the “sexiest book of the Bible.” Similarly, THE SONG is a sexy, faith-driven film that depicts love, commitment and longing in the context of real-world temptations to adultery, addiction and self-centeredness—ultimately upholding marriage as a beautiful and special gift to be cherished and treasured as Christ loves His bride, the Church.
