Eli is a man in his twenties with a calling on his life from a young age, but he's been running from that calling - a modern day Jonah. After being fired by his father, arguing with his girlfriend in front of their daughter, and then a visit to the local pub, Eli decides to get out of town. On a lonely mountain highway Eli misses a turn and careens over an embankment, landing deep in the forest. It is a place of mystery with no way out, but it is there where God works on his heart. Satan is not far behind of course, working to convince Eli to take a different path. In the end Eli is faced with a choice that will have repercussions on generations as his destiny is to be the Billy Graham of his time.
Aside from Greene's involvement, almost completely pedestrian...
Low-budget, religious-themed drama, expanded from the short film "Redeeming Daniel", concerns obstinate, quick-tempered Eli, a young man returned home to his family after a stint in the service who immediately butts heads with his rancher father. Since he's also at odds with both his mother and his wife--who won't allow him to tuck their four-year old into bed anymore--Eli gets drunk and drives off into the mountains, where he has a religious epiphany following an accident in his truck. Writer-director Shawn Justice apparently had a need to make this film, and he does have a message of faith to get across if you wait him out, but he displays no visible talent handling his actors (his dialogue is negligible as well). As a grizzled, mellow fellow camping out in the woods with his dog, Graham Greene arrives an hour into the proceedings and manages to give the production a little polish, but lead actor Adam Elliott Davis is embarrassing standing in a leaf-storm howling up at the sky. A filmmaker with some cinematic savvy might have given us more sides to Eli instead of just this stubborn cuss who pushes everyone away, but Justice is too determined to point out the obvious--that giving ourselves to God strengthens us--and forgets that movies are meant to entertain as well as enlighten. *1/2 from ****
