Peeking into organized religion is always risky business, but writer-director adamma ebosatirical comedy, Sound the horn for Jesus. Save your soul. take a hit anyway… and score. The film, which was released in 2022 Sundance Film Festival to critical acclaim, it chronicles the desperate attempt of a Southern Baptist megachurch power couple to make a comeback after a spectacular fall from grace.
After a sex scandal triggered a mass exodus of his followers, Baptist pastor Lee-Curtis Childs (sterling k. Brown) and her First Lady Trinitie (Regina Hall) try everything to get their flock back as a documentary crew chronicles what they hope will be their arc of redemption. Instead, the documentary captures Lee-Curtis’s high-energy narcissism and the pent-up fury of her wife, who finds herself increasingly unable to help her incorrigible husband. The protagonists of the film have made it quite clear that the objective of the film is not to tear down the church but to criticize it from love. Critics have praised Hall’s portrayal of the wife who needs to help her husband but can’t take it anymore. She’s a rage that she can’t wear Prada or hide under her thousand dollar hats. Her smile grows more and more fake and, after a moment, her face is no longer cooperative with the cameras. Hall and Brown are delightful to watch in this darkly funny movie.
Here’s everything we know about Sound the horn for Jesus. Save your soul.
What is honking the horn for Jesus. Does it save your soul?
The official synopsis from Focus Features reads:
Sound the horn for Jesus. Save your soul. is a satirical comedy starring Regina Hall as Trinitie Childs, the proud first lady of a Southern Baptist megachurch who, along with her husband, Pastor Lee-Curtis Childs (Sterling K. Brown), once served a congregation of tens of thousands. But after a scandal forces her church to temporarily close, Trinitie and Lee-Curtis must reopen their church and rebuild their congregation to make the biggest comeback commodified religion has ever seen.
Focus Features released the official trailer on July 7, 2022. In the two-and-a-half-minute trailer, the documentarians chronicle Hall’s Trinitie and Brown’s Lee-Curtis as they try to recover from a sex scandal that cost them their lives. large congregation and luxurious lifestyle. Hilariously deaf, the two sit on royal thrones in their church as they try to fool the documentarian and the audience. “Lee-Curtis and I are going to get to the other side,” says Trinitie. Her husband, even more delirious, proclaims: “I am a sinner, but I am not a criminal” and “This will be the chronicle of the last return”.
As Lee-Curtis channels Rocky Balboa, Trinitie suffers the humiliation of having to stand in the street holding a sign that reads “Honk for Jesus” to rally support for her disgraced church. When the drivers ignore them, Lee-Curtis tells Trinitie, “You’re really not hearing that many beeps, honey. Shake it for the Lord! Get my honks to the Lord!”
Trinitie actually shakes it off, dancing while holding her pathetic Honk for Jesus sign. How low will she go to get back up? “All those people who are going to see this, I want them to know that I did what I was supposed to do.”
