Film explores ex-con's struggles

Friday, January 23, 2004

"Something to Sing About," will be shown on Friday, Jan. 30, starting at 7 p.m., at Harvest Assembly at Oak Grove.

The video, starring Irma P. Hall, Darius McCrary and Tamera Mowry, and introducing Rashaan Nall, was originally made for television.

The story centers around an ex-con, trying to set his life straight, who meets up with an endearing woman who befriends him and offers him hope. Soon into the proceedings, the young man accepts Jesus Christ as his Savior, with the Billy Graham TV Crusades getting a supporting role, and thus begin the twists of plot.

The woman's granddaughter takes a personal interest in Tommy, as do various street thugs, whose drug-dealing interests are upset when a colleague, who happens to be the ex-con's childhood friend, is influenced away from the drug-dealing game.

Harvest Night at the Movies is held the last Friday of each month, according to Cord McKinley.

The film will be shown on a 14-foot screen with stereo theater sound. The public is invited, and there is no charge.

The church is located just east of Oak Grove on the north side on Highway 21. For more information, telephone (870) 749-2750 or 749-2613.
