Critically Acclaimed Film Brings Blue Like Jazz to Life
(Rock Rapids, IA) - Based on theNew York Times bestseller by Donald Miller that swept the nation, the coming-of-age film Blue Like Jazz is now available on DVD from Bridgestone Multimedia Group.
Don is a sheltered 19-year-old junior college student who becomes disenchanted with his faith when his mom has an affair with a married youth pastor. Don impulsively flees Texas for a new life at a progressive Portland college and one of the most godless campuses in America.
The eccentric student body and surroundings are in stark contrast to the Bible Belt environment Don left behind, sending him on a journey of self-discovery during which he must come to terms with who he really is, what he believes, and where he truly belongs. Directed by recording artist Steve Taylor, Blue Like Jazz presents a Christian message and inspiring story that rings true.
"It tackles existential struggles that many of us grapple with - and the film industry virtually ignores - while doing so in an entertaining way," said David Lewis, a film critic for theSan Francisco Chronicle.
An official selection of the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, Blue Like Jazz is a critically acclaimed film. TheNew York Postcalled the film "a sincere movie about Christian faith." In addition, USA Today heralded the movie as "a surprisingly contemporary look at faith," the Washington Post said it was "a story that needs to be told," and Chicago Reader praised the film for its "uncommon thoughtfulness about spiritual issues.
Starring Marshall Allman, Claire Holt, Tania Raymonde, Justin Welborn, Donald Miller, Jenny Littleton, and Jason Marsden, Blue Like Jazz is now available on DVD at gobmg.com for $19.95.
