Faith-based ‘The Song’ Gets U.S. Distribution

Faith-based 'The Song' Gets U.S. Distribution

Looking to appeal to faith-based audiences, Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired U.S. rights to City on a Hill Studio’s music-driven love story “The Song.”

The film stars Alan Powell of the group Anthem Lights, Caitlin Nicol-Thomas (“Nashville”) and Ali Faulkner (“Twilight”). Samuel Goldwyn Films will release the film on Sept. 26.

Richard Ramsey directed from his own script, a modern-day adaptation of the life and writings of Solomon, as found in the Song of Solomon and Ecclesiastes.

Powell portrays a singer-songwriter who struggles to catch a break and escape the long shadow of his father, a country music legend. He falls in love with a vineyard owner’s daughter (Faulkner) and writes a hit song, but his life and marriage begin to fall apart when he gets involved with another performer, played by Nicol-Thomas.

Faith-based films are performing well at the U.S. box office; recent successes include Sony’s “Heaven Is for Real” with $83 million and “God’s Not Dead” with $59 million.
