Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Love and faith are put to the ultimate test in this stirring romantic drama set against the landmark Scopes "Monkey Trial" of 1925. Charles Anderson (Nathan West, "Miracle") is a talented young reporter engaged to Rose (Ashley Johnson, "The Help"), who works with him at the Tennessee small town newspaper his late father founded. The "Trial of the Century" brings brilliant adversaries William Jennings Bryan (Fred Thompson, "The Genesis Code") and Clarence Darrow (Brian Dennehy, "Cocoon") to Charles' hometown. But as the trial unfolds, Charles is caught up in the media circus and becomes torn between his journalistic integrity and impressing his mentor, the colorful Baltimore Sun editor H. L. Menken (Colm Meaney, "Star Trek: The Next Generation"), who presses him to "make a story" instead of report one.

Discussion guide included for church and home group study.

Rated 4.7 out of 5★ by 3reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 Awesome Awesome,my wife and I loved it. Need more movies like this. 11/29/2011
Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent movie on the Trial of the Century The OJ trial was not the trial of the century, the Scopes monkey trial was. This movie was exceptionally well produced and acted, and unlike the "Inherit the Wind" play and movie, this one portrays a historically accurate account of the events that transpired during that moment in history. I believe only the love story within the film is fictional.This movie is a must see, both for its entertainment value, and for its educational value given its historically accurate portrayal of the events during and surrounding the trial. 12/01/2011
Rated 4 out of 5★ by So, so Our family couldn't wait to see this. The content and era really interested us. It was nicely made and the content was pretty good, but it was a little on the boring side. Mabye becasue they turned into a love story along with the trail. Not sure. I would still reccomend it. 01/10/2012
