Forgiving The FranklinsPosted in 2006, Feature Films
There’s More Than One Way To Be Born Again
Our premiere screening in 2006 was Jay Floyd’s masterpiece, Forgiving the Franklins. This crowd favorite at SunDance is wonderfully twisted, sexy, and more fun then you’ve had at the theater in a long time.
Forgiving The Franklins is the sometimes hilarious, sometimes tragic story of a repressed, God fearing southern family who undergo a radical spiritual change putting them at odds with the conservative values of their community
The Franklins are a stereotypical North Carolina Family: Frank is a lawyer, Betty is a homemaker, and the high school-age kids, Caroline and Brian, are a cheerleader and a football star, respecttively. An auto accident turns their world upsdie down. In a state somewhere between life and death, Frank, Betty, and Brian meet Christ who, for reasons known only to him, removes from them the burden of Origional Sin. Left out of the equation is Caroline who, in the throes of adolescence and real bodily pain from her injuries, must figure out why her family has suddenly and ravenously embraced their repressed sexuality.
Forgiving The Franklins may upset some, while the most adventurous will find it funny, sexy, and unforgettable.
