Mitch Albom's Have a Little Faith to Premiere Thanksgiving Sunday
Although I am a transplanted North Dakota girl, I have deep Detroit, Michigan roots. A piece of my heart will always live there. As a result I have always enjoyed reading Mitch Albom’s non-fiction. Last year our book group read Have a Little Faith: A True Story (affiliate link) and I enjoyed it. I may not have agreed with all of the theology presented, I rarely do; but the overarching themes of forgiveness and gratitude hit home.
So, when Hallmark Hall of Fame wanted to see if I would help spread the word about the movie, based on the book, I said OK. I especially like the fact that it was filmed mostly on location in Detroit, my little city that could. The film stars Laurence Fishbourne, as Henry Covington, a Detroit preacher who overcame a life of drugs and violence and went on to help others. It also stars Martin Landau who plays New Jersey Rabbi Albert Lewis. Albom is played by Bradley Whitford. Through the story of these two very different religious figures we are able to see how each profoundly affected Albom.
I’m looking forward to the movie, produced by Hallmark Hall of Fame Productions, Inc. and directed by Jon Avnent.
In order to prepare my readers for the movie, Hallmark Hall of Fame has given me two copies of the book, Have a Little Faith: A True Story To give to you! This is a pretty quick giveaway though, and winners will be selected at noon (CST) this Wednesday, November 23. Consider it an early Christmas gift for me to you!
You can view clips of the movie here. Make sure to tune in to ABC this coming Sunday, November 29 at 9:00 PM EST.
