False Prophets

False Prophets

Movie: False Prophets
Director: Robert Kevin Townsend
Produced by: Tabula Rasa Films
Released By: Freestyle Releasing
MPAA Rating: R

Filmed independently under the title Gas Station Jesus, this contemporary parable stars Lori Heuring as Maggie Tate, who finds herself pregnant by “miraculous conception.” Miraculous or no, Maggie doesn’t want to have the baby, but is pressured to do so by a group of threatening-looking Christian fundamentalists. She ends up stranded at a remote gas station with an enigmatic old preacher named Isaiah and his equally strange son, who repeat the mantra that Maggie has absolutely no control over her future nor the future of her baby. A climactic chase and a second miracle provide any number of surprises for both our heroine and her pursuers. After a limited round of film-festival showings, Gas Station Jesus was brought to American cable television through the auspices of the Lifetime channel under the less provocative title Miracle Baby.
