The riveting family-friendly drama, Alone Yet Not Alone is slated for a broad release in over 200 theaters nationwide including theaters in South Florida on June 13.
Alone Yet Not Alone received an Academy Award Nomination for Best Original Song in spring 2014. Joni Eareckson Tada’s video recording of the song online rocketed to over a million views in less than 60 days. Then, to everyone’s surprise, the nomination was rescinded, a move that was immediately controversial both inside and outside of the Hollywood community.
Based on a true story of two young girl’s faith to triumph over unspeakable tragedy, Alone Yet Not Alone is about the endurance of God’s promises and the power of the human spirit. Enthuse Entertainment’s flagship production stars Kelly Greyson, of Return To The Hiding Place, with with Jenn Gotzon, of God’s Country, and actor/musical artist Clay Walker, of Jesse James.
Last fall the movie was shown at 11 select U.S. cities as part of a “sneak peek” week-long release. The Christian audience’s enthusiastic reception helped rank Alone Yet Not Alone as one of the highest per screen average independently released faith-based films to date with a $11,434 per screen average in its limited release, according to the Enthuse Entertainment.
“Previous success has sparked a heightened interest about the film and we are excited to now introduce Alone Yet Not Alone to a wider audience this June,” says Executive Producer, Ken Wales, who worked on Amazing Grace, and the “Christy” TV Series.
A historical Journey of faith
Depicting a family at a critical juncture in America’s history, the film is designed to encourage and uplift families in difficult times, through sharing the inspiring story of Barbara and Regina Leininger and their journey of faith and survival during the French & Indian war in 1755. Captured by the Delaware Indians after raiding their home, and transported over 300 miles of wilderness to Ohio, the sisters are sustained only by their abiding trust in God, and their hope of escape against all odds to be reunited with their family.
Alone Yet Not Alone is a movie filled with action, drama and suspense shot on location at historical sites in Tennessee, Virginia, Pennsylvania and North Carolina to allow audiences to take the journey with the characters. Filmmakers realized that in order to tell the story authentically, they would need to shoot where the events actually occurred or those similar in terrain.
Highlighting themes of endurance, perseverance and faith with positive values and entertaining action sequences that make it safe viewing for families, the film also garnered the “Family-Friendly Seal” (12+ years) with a five Dove rating from the prestigious Dove Foundation, an organization that provides online family movie and video reviews and ratings.
Recommending the film, Dr. James Dobson, founder and president of Family Talk, said, “The technical quality, the beauty of the acting, and most importantly the inspiration of the story will get to your heart and elevate your spirit.”
The film will release through the movie ticket reservation platform and new film distribution company Seatzy, which allows moviegoers to support the films they love by getting ticket reservations in early and bringing movies to a theater closest to them. Local theaters participating in this showing at the time of publication include Cinemark Palace 20, 3200 Airport Rd., Boca Raton, and Regal Kendall Village Stadium 16, 8595 S.W. 124 Ave., Miami.
