“Joshua,” the anticipated major motion picture based on Joseph Girzone’s international best-seller and produced by Epiphany Films, made its debut in select cities on April 19, 2002. Christian Spotlight’s review of the film shows that most viewers in the audience greatly appreciated “Joshua.” See for yourself!
Versatile actor/director Tony Goldwyn (“Bounce,” “An American Rhapsody,” “Ghost”), stars as a charismatic stranger whose arrival has a profound impact on a small town, bringing the community together in unforeseen ways. Directed by Jon Purdy (“Star Portal,” “Dillinger and Capone”) with a screenplay by Brad Mirman and Keith Giglio, Joshua also stars Academy Award-winner F. Murray Abraham (“Finding Forrester,” “13 Ghosts,” “Amadeus”), and screen legend Giancarlo Giannini (“Hannibal”).
In addition, a virtual “Who’s Who” of Christian music brings their blend of inspirational tunes to the soundtrack.

Smith, Brooks & Dunn, and Nicole C. Mullen with Mark Schultz in an exclusive duet. The album also boasts songs by Dove Award-winning Third Day, Rachael Lampa, Cindy Morgan and Anointed.
