The filmmakers behind the critically acclaimed movie “Jesus Revolution” have announced their next project titled “Ordinary Angels.” The upcoming movie is set to star Academy Award-winning actress Hilary Swank and will explore the lives of everyday people who perform extraordinary acts of kindness and compassion.
“Ordinary Angels” is a passion project for the filmmakers, who were inspired by the real-life stories of individuals who selflessly serve their communities without expecting any recognition or reward. The movie will showcase the incredible impact that small acts of kindness can have on individuals and communities, and how they can change lives forever.
The project will tell the story of Sharon Stevens (Swank), a “fierce but struggling hairdresser in small-town Kentucky who discovers a renewed sense of purpose when she meets Ed Schmitt (Ritchson), a widower working hard to make ends meet for his two daughters.”
“With his youngest daughter waiting for a liver transplant, Sharon sets her mind to helping the family and will move mountains to do it. What unfolds is the inspiring tale of faith, everyday miracles, and ordinary angels,” reads an overview by Kingdom Story Company.
According to a post on the official Twitter page of the Jesus Revolution Movie, “Ordinary Angels” is to be released on 13 October.

Swank, who is a two-time Academy Award winner for her performances in “Boys Don’t Cry” and “Million Dollar Baby,” said she was excited to be part of the project. In a statement, Swank said she was drawn to the story “because it’s such a powerful reminder that angels reside everywhere among us.”
“And that faith, hope, grit and positivity are all powerful fuel for miracles,” she said. “It’s also a story about the power of organ donation — something incredibly near and dear to my heart. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of this story and message.”
The filmmakers behind “Jesus Revolution” have built a reputation for producing films that explore themes of faith, hope, and redemption. The movie, which was released last month, tells the story of a group of young people who experience a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ during the Jesus Movement of the 1970s. “Ordinary Angels” is expected to be another powerful film that resonates with audiences of all backgrounds and beliefs. With Hilary Swank on board, the project has already generated significant buzz among movie fans and industry insiders alike.
The release date for “Ordinary Angels” has been announced to be October 13, and fans are eagerly anticipating its arrival. With its inspiring message and top-notch cast, this film is sure to be a must-see for moviegoers everywhere.
