Movie Info

Set in the distinctive world of storefront churches, based on actual events, Free in Deed depicts one man's attempts to perform a miracle. When a single mother brings her young son to church for healing, this lonely Pentecostal minister is forced to confront the seemingly incurable illness of the child and his own demons as well. The more he prays, the more things seem to spiral out of his control.

Critic Reviews for Free in Deed

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6)

An achingly raw and tender portrait of two spiritually isolated individuals for whom the laying on of hands is a surrogate for some desperately needed human contact.

Superb, skin-prickling performances by the three principals contribute invaluably to the pic's stern believability.

Top Critic

Mahaffy's uncompromising approach, and the quality of its performances, make [Free in Deed] a rare and valuable testament: to the terrible danger of believing in miracles, and to the cruelty of a world that might make such belief necessary.

There's a lot to like in Free in Deed, a well-acted, unrelentingly dour experiment in atmosphere, setting and sound that will captivate you throughout.

September 5, 2017 | Full Review…

An unforgettable collision of hope, faith and desperation.

The results occasionally feel coy, but each time the movie edges into mannerism Mr. Harewood and Ms. Dickerson pull you close enough to make it hurt.
