One of my favorite things about having a movie in the film festival circuit is that you get introduced to other movies. One of those movies is Gallow’s Road. It screened at the International Christian Film Festival in Orlando, and while we didn’t attend, Jenn Gotzon was there representing our movie The Good Book, and she gave the film raving reviews. She also connected me with producer Mary Jean Bentley. 

Faith Flix review of Gallow's Road

Synopsis –

Brothers Bob (Ernie Hudson) and Seth (Marcus Mauldin) are just one day away from making their dream of opening an antique store come true. This is not just any antique store, but one previously owned by the sheriff’s brother, who has two wayward sons, Snake and Matty. Trouble begins.

Jake Knight (Bill McAdams Jr) is a man searching for a purpose, unsure of his role both as a husband and a father. He has a beautiful wife and two children yet he chooses to spend most of his time with the “brotherhood”, Snake and Matty. This choice causes Jake to get off course and head down the wrong road. One of his only hopes and saving grace is his boss Frank (Kevin Sorbo) who is a good friend offering both steady work at the stables and spiritual advice. But more often than not, Jakes search seems to end at the bottom of a bottle.

In GALLOWS ROAD, an unthinkable crime, will draw these men together, changing their lives forever – turning one from the light while speeding the other towards darkness.

Gallow’s Road is a touching story about forgiveness.It’s full of small town drama, action, with touches of humor interspersed.

The acting is good all around. My favorite performances were Megan Dalby as Puck Knight and Rett Terrell as Snake Cain.

I especially enjoyed the scene where Kevin Sorbo’s character explains to Bill McAdams how he’s headed down Gallow’s Road and only he has the power change the course. I also enjoyed the scenes between young Puck and Bay.
