We all have a variety of different ways that we deal with trauma. Some healthy and some unhealthy. One thing that a lot of people turn to in these situations is their faith. Their belief that a higher power can help them persevere and fill them with a sense of purpose. This is one of the themes in the upcoming, uplifting new film Walking With Herb from Optimism Entertainment and Rio Road Entertainment. This is film is based on the book that goes by the same name by Joe S. Bullock.
With its release in late April of this year, they have released a trailer for Walking With Herb. You can check it out below!
Here is the synopsis for Walking With Herb:
Joe Amable-Amo is a bank executive and former amateur golfer struggling with his faith after an unexpected tragedy. Faced with doubts about himself, his purpose and his belief in God, Joe is stunned when God tells him that he’s been chosen to inspire the world and play in a world championship golf tournament. Guided by God’s eccentric personal messenger, Herb, Joe learns that the seemingly impossible is possible…through faith, family and second chances.
The film stars one of the biggest Latin actors of our time, Edward James Olmos, and comedy legend George Lopez. Along with Kathleen Quinlan and Billy Boyd. It is directed by Ross Kagen and written by Mark Medoff. Its executive producers are Olmos, Lopez, Bullock, and William Blaylock. Producers are Brian Espinosa, Ross Kagen Marks, and Medoff.
“It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had working on a film,” said Olmos. “An amazing script and an excellent cast combine for a heart-warming, funny story about golf, belief and second chances.”
I am a huge sucker for sports films. This one looks to have a lot of heart and an overall positive message. Something that we can all use right now. What did you think of the trailer? Let us know in the comment section down below!
