Michael Ealy, who appears in films like Think Like A Man and Barbershop, stars in the upcoming Christian/Faith based film, Unconditional. Ealy plays Joe, a childhood friend of the main character, Samantha, played by Lynn Collins.
In the movie Samantha’s life is a storybook life. She’s happily married, she lives on a ranch where she keeps her beloved horse, and the stories she’s told and illustrated since childhood have become published books. When her husband Billy is killed in a senseless act of violence, Sam loses her faith and her will to live.
However, a death-defying encounter with two children leads to a reunion with Joe. As Samantha watches Joe care for and love the kids in his under-resourced neighborhood, she begins to realize that no matter life’s circumstances, the love of God is always reaching out to us.
The film’s intent is not merely to entertain, but also to raise awareness of people and organizations committed to making a difference to those in desperate need. The producers hope Unconditional will encourage viewers to make a difference in their own community.
The movie is scheduled to premiere in theaters on September 21, 2012.
