Great songs, timeless story make THE SONG a film for everybody
THE SONG has something for everybody, says Christian Cinema. It's a love story, it's a tribute to music (featuring ten original songs) and it's a modern twist on the love letters of King Solomon. The exciting new film, set for release on September 26, is the creation of Writer/Director Richard Ramsey and City on a Hill Studio.
THE SONG is a modern-day adaptation of the great, wise and wildly romantic ruler, reimagining a time-tested Bible story in a modern setting. Solomon had 1,000 wives and grew up in the shadow of Israel's greatest monarch, King David. The new Samuel Goldwyn Film "follows aspiring singer-songwriter Jed King (Alan Powell), who lives in the shadow of his country-music legend father.
"Attempting to make his own way, Jed accepts a gig at a local vineyard harvest festival where he falls in love with the vineyard owner’s daughter, Rose (Ali Faulkner). After a short romance, the two marry and Jed writes 'The Song' for his new bride. The song becomes an instant hit, thrusting Jed into the swirling world of stardom."
But the temptations that come with sudden success and instant fame, not to mention the allure of attractive fellow performer Shelby Bale (Caitlin Nicol-Thomas) spin Jed’s life and marriage out of control.
This is a Bible story? Yes, found in the Song of Solomon and Ecclesiastes, it will join recent films such as Seasons of Gray (a modern adaptation of Joseph’s story) and My Name is Paul (a futuristic version of the Apostle Paul).
“Richard Ramsey has created an incredibly touching and triumphant film about temptation, redemption and the power of forgiveness,” said Meyer Gottlieb, President of Samuel Goldwyn Films. "We wanted to make a film that was authentic and relatable… I think The Song is the kind of movie that will have people talking about things that really matter," said Ramsey.
