(Rock Rapids, IA) - Filmmaker Jefferson Moore puts a humorous twist on the biblical story of the prodigal son in Backroads and Lilies, a new family film now available on DVD from Bridgestone Multimedia Group.
All Alza Reese Bennett wants is to get home to her estranged family for the Easter holiday, but an auto mishap leaves the high-strung executive more than 700 miles short of her destination and standing on the doorstep of a grizzled, reclusive farmer named Lincoln. The mismatched pair strike a deal and set out on a three-day odyssey of misadventure.
Along the highways and byways of America, they encounter rat-infested hotels, convenience store hold-ups, rural rabbit stalkers, and a star-struck couple from a local trailer park. Best of all, they are forced to encounter each other as the two worlds of the princess and hermit collide at every turn.
"This is a terrific movie about the discoveries one makes while on the journey of life. Anyone who has ever had ‘one of those days' will relate to this film," said Edwin L. Carpenter in his review for the Dove Foundation, which awarded the film its highest honor of five doves. "Don't miss this one. It's family friendly all the way."
Jefferson Moore, whose films include The Perfect Stranger series, The Perfect Gift, and Clancy, and Christina Karis co-star in the film, which also includes Pattie Crawford (The Stranger), Keith McGill, and Melissa Combs in supporting roles
Backroads and Liliesis now available from Bridgestone Multimedia Group at gobmg.com for $14.99.
