Sam Doonby, a no-good drifter, enters a small town in Texas. His sudden arrival is met with suspicion, jealousy, and intrigue. His departure is just as sudden, and then the town realizes how one person's presence can matter.
A local Sheriff decides to right the wrongs in the small town prior to his demise, unbeknownst to him, the Deputy, his son is hot on his heels in pursuit and alerts the Attorney General, who happens to turn a blind eye to the Sheriff.
A group of Americans - a singer, a newspaper editor, a pastor and a real estate mogul - vow to walk in the steps of Jesus. Every day, every decision becomes a turning point in their lives as they must ask themselves "What Would Jesus Do?"
"Let The Lion Roar" is a stunning film that addresses issues that many would prefer to leave covered up. It's a movie that you may want to watch more than once - I found that there's so much content to think through that you almost need to watch it 2 or 3 times to absorb it all.
I'm not surprised that there's a negative review here this is a shocking movie, and it's bound to be offensive to some. There's always going to be that one person who trashes something just because they feel threatened by it! It's easy to pick holes when you want to undermine something. Don't let that sway you. This is a thought-provoking film that depicts a complex subject in a creative and entertaining manner.
I'm sure it's not for everyone, but for my family and I, this was an informative, edifying watch.
