Abel's Field Movie: Small Town Roots

(March 14, 2013)
C.J. Darlington
The tiny town of Thrall, Texas, is as much a star in film Abel’s Field as its leading actors Kevin Sorbo (Hercules, Soul Surfer) and Samuel Davis. Discovered by director Gordie Haakstad using Google Earth, real-life Thrall becomes the fictional town of Sinai, where football is king. High schooler Seth struggles to care for his younger sisters in the wake of his mother’s death and his father’s abandonment, but he keeps getting in trouble at school. He soon finds himself working with groundskeeper Abel (Sorbo) to prepare the football field for the big game. “This movie is about getting a second chance,” Sorbo says.
