We gave it a B

Romantics and Roman Catholics alike will get a kick out of Avow, the latest drama from Bill C. Davis (Mass Appeal). This time, a priest is pitted against a marriage-minded gay man, his pregnant sister, and his lover.

Lest things get too serious, one-time MGM gem Jane Powell steals the show as a plucky grandma-to-be. God bless her. B
