When Eli begins preaching at his father’s old church, he is desperate to open the minds of the fire-and-brimstone congregation. His plans are quickly derailed when he strikes up a relationship with a fascinating drifter (played by Zachary Booth of Keep the Lights On, Damages and 2017's Centrepiece Gala After Louie). Tensions soon come to a head, with simmering resentments and repressed emotions all leading to a revival that will shake this sleepy Arkansas town to its core.
Please be advised that the film contains acts of violence.
"Showcasing a pair of deeply gifted leading men and a promising new talent behind the camera, [The Revival is an] unblinking look at the excruciating inner tug-of-war between one man's homosexuality and his religious devotion."
