We gave it an A-

As Sonny Dewey, a flawed Christian who is also a great evangelist, Robert Duvall draws on more than three decades of experience personifying the bruised souls of American men to create a fearless and fascinating piece of work. He propels the drama (as producer, director, and writer) with the force of his own passion. And he blazes on screen in a hell-for-leather performance?with little regard for the movie?s extended running time. Watch for Billy Bob Thornton in an extraordinary scene of repentance and conversion.
