(2022) (Abigail Cowen, Tom Lewis) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- 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.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- The faith-based angle might draw some, but the storyline is too mature for younger kids.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For mature thematic content, sexual content, partial nudity, and strong violent content.
