Striking. With an attention-grabbing hook and two riveting central performances, Jennifer Gerber’s feature directorial debut The Revival holds you in its grip.
— Jon Frosch, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

OFFICIAL SELECTION: Outfest Los Angeles

In local filmmaker Jennifer Gerber’s Southern Gothic debut, a rugged stranger comes to town, inflaming the repressed desires of a handsome, sensitive church pastor.  Evoking Flannery O’Connor and the Coen Brothers, Gerber’s film is both darkly funny and dead-serious: it’s an intense, romantic passion play set in a world of of casseroles, gossipy church ladies, home-cooked drugs, and kissin’ cousins.  Handsomely photographed and boldly acted by its two leads, The Revival is a brave, compelling addition to Central Arkansas’ growing list of home-grown films. ~ Mark Thiedeman
