Enjoyed God's Country, was an entertaining watch. Good message. Great opening set up. Lead, Jenn Gotzon has some nice comedic moments and is a strong presence.. Moving scene later on when she opens to a realization of who she has become and the presence of something more than herself. AND THANK YOU FOR NOT HAVING A MONOLOGUE TO EXPLAIN WHAT WAS HAPPENING. Her emotional journey of that scene was moving and really well done. Chris Armstrong directs with a nice pace. The supporting cast were all strong and believable. Good editing. For a first feature - and hello, 16 day filming schedule and less than 100K! Great work.

While a lot of faith-based films are truly cringe-worthy to watch, Director Chris Armstrong has done an amazing job elevating this film far above its budget and source material. The direction, editing, sound and cinematography are all exceptional. Strong performances all around from the excellent ensemble cast but it is Jenn Gotzen who shines as Meghan Doherty, an ambitious real estate executive sent to oversee the foreclosure of “God’s Country.” She arrives at the Christian retreat, tucked away in the Mohave Desert, with the intent to seal the deal and move on but the owner refuses to sign her offer sheet until she has experienced life on the retreat. What follows is a great, fun fish-out-of-water story the entire family can enjoy as Meghan Doherty tries to navigate her way through six days in God’s Country. A well-crafted movie that is fun to watch.

This film more than exceeded my hopes. Jenn Gotzon was fabulous in the lead role and watching her character's transformation throughout the film was a joy to watch. She was very believable in the dramatic moments and her comic timing was fabulous! The rest of the cast were equally as good and had wonderful chemistry. Gib Gerard was an excellent foil and love interest to Jenn's character and you know that Michael Toland and Daniel Hugh Kelly are seasoned actors who had superb performances. The exuberance of Lenny (Kelvin Brown) and the sweet, idealistic Geri (Stephanie Barnes) really stood out to me and I also loved Meghan's mom (Suzanne Ford). Well done to all of the cast! I also want to say how impressed I was with director Chris Armstrong. Some of the scenes he captured were absolutely stunning, and the entire film was outstanding. This was a fun film that had a message of faith, but filled with characters you knew would stand firm in their trust in God no matter what.
