He was touched by the power and filled with the spirit. A man of faith. A man of the flesh. A man plagued by the darker side of human desire, and rage. In this Academy Award-nominated performance, Robert Duvall (The Godfather I & II, Apocalypse Now) is Sonny, a gifted Southern preacher loved by his community. When Sonny loses control and commits a crime of passion, he is forced to run from the law. Hiding out in a small town of Bay Boutte, Sonny adopts a new identity and sets out on a new mission to find the road to redemption. Featuring powerful supporting performances from Billy Bob Thornton, Farrah Fawcett and Miranda Richardson.
