Drama: Believing it's God's will, a mid-19th century farmer plans to free a prostitute from her line of work and marry her.

It's the mid-1800s and Angel (ABIGAIL COWEN) is the most in-demand prostitute working for the Duchess (FAMKE JANSSEN) in the gold-mining town of Paradise. Having been forced into prostitution at a young age by Duke (ERIC DANE) following her mother's death, Angel's services result in long lines of men waiting their turn with her. Not among them -- at least in the carnal sense -- is Michael Hosea (TOM LEWIS), a farmer who works and lives twenty miles outside of town. A highly religious man, Michael has asked God to grant him a woman to share his life with, and it's love at first sight when he first lays eyes on Angel.

Notwithstanding her line of work and how that contrasts with his lifestyle and beliefs, Michael believes he's destined to marry Angel, something he tells her after paying just to talk to her. Having been taken advantage of her entire life and with a low opinion of God based on her bad luck and current circumstance, Angel laughs him off, but he persists.

When things go badly at the brothel for her, Michael rescues her by paying off her debt and takes her back to his farm. She still wants nothing to do with him, and things become more complicated when Michael's late sister's husband, Paul (LOGAN MARSHALL-GREEN) -- who owns land next to Michael -- returns home after trying his hand at mining gold. And the stakes are raised even higher when Duke reenters the picture, still upset about Angel fleeing his house of ill repute many years ago across the country.

The faith-based angle might draw some, but the storyline is too mature for younger kids.
For mature thematic content, sexual content, partial nudity, and strong violent content.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
