Salvation Boulevard Movie Synopsis & Plot
Based on the book by Larry Beinhart ("Wag the Dog"). The comedic thriller is set in the world of mega-churches in which a former Deadhead-turned-born again-Christian finds himself on the run from fundamentalist members of his mega-church who will do anything to protect their larger-than-life pastor.
Of all the movies I watched at the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) this year, none was more rewarding than Salvation Boulevard
, the agnostic comedy starring Greg Kinnear, Pierce Brsonan, Marisa Tomei, Jennifer Connelly and Ed Harris. A lighthearted, offbeat laugh fest, the movie wasn't as awarding as the experience, that of being crammed into a theater full of atheists who relate all too well to the jokes on display.
