The first Christian film of 2019 looks very promising. The Least of These is based on the true story of Graham Staines. The release date will mark the 20th anniversary of the missionary’s martyrdom.
Here is the film review from The Christian Post:
The Least of These,” centers on the life of Graham Staines, who along with his two sons was killed in India while ministering to lepers.
Skypass Entertainment, which is overseeing the production of the film, announced that the movie will be released to mark 20 years since Staines’ martyrdom.
Victor Abraham, head of Skypass and the executive producer for the film, said in a statement that the movie “beautifully illustrates the power of love, hope, and forgiveness to overcome hate.”
“It is the very edict of the commandment to love your neighbor as you love yourself,” he added.
Originally titled “Staines,” the film was shot on location near Hyderabad and told the story of the missionary through the perspective of a fictional young journalist named Manav Banerjee.
“When speculation mounts that Graham Staines (Stephen Baldwin) is illegally proselytizing leprosy patients, Manav agrees to investigate undercover for the newspaper,” Skypass says about the film.
“What Manav finds is a series of revelations that are difficult to fathom and even harder to explain, forcing him to make a choice between his own ambition and the truth.”
The film stars Baldwin as Staines, Bollywood star Sharman Joshi as Banerjee, with Aneesh Daniel as director and with a soundtrack that includes Michael W. Smith, Nicole C. Mullen, and TobyMac.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Baldwin explained that he believed that God called him to do the movie, adding that it was an answer to prayer and “empowered by the Holy Spirit.
