Opening in theaters on September 26 is a brand new movie that is inspired by the Biblical book Song of Songs. The movie revolves around the story of singer/songwriter Jed King who is struggling to catch a break and escape the long shadow of his famous father when he reluctantly agrees to a gig at a local vineyard harvest festival. Jed meets the vineyard owner's daughter, Rose, and a romance quickly blooms. Soon after their wedding, Jed writes Rose "The Song," which becomes a breakout hit. Suddenly thrust into a life of stardom and a world of temptation, his life and marriage begin to fall apart.
Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired US rights to City on a Hill Studio's music-driven love story THE SONG. The film stars Alan Powell (lead-singer for "Anthem Lights"), Caitlin Nicol-Thomas ("Nashville") and Ali Faulkner (TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN), and features ten original songs produced for the film. Samuel Goldwyn Films will release the film on September 26th.
"Richard Ramsey has created an incredibly touching and triumphant film about temptation, redemption and the power of forgiveness. We are proud to bring this moving and inspirational love story to the big screen and I'm certain it will resonate with audiences around the country," said Meyer Gottlieb, President of Samuel Goldwyn Films.
Author and Senior Pastor Kyle Idleman has this to say about the movie: "In our culture we are constantly hearing about love, sex, and marriage. These are the subjects of the songs we listen to, the books we read and the movies we watch. But the messages we have been receiving have left our love lives broken and cold. We want to awaken love in marriages and we look to what God has said about these important areas. After all he is the one who came up with the ideas of love, sex, and marriage; so he's the one who knows what's best. THE SONG film is a great date night movie that will point you to God who has the power to awaken love in your relationship."
