Exclusive Clip: A Basketball Player Finds His Faith in “Midrange”

posted by Nell Minow

I am delighted to have five copies of the new faith-based film “Midrange” to give away.  If you’d like to enter, send an email to moviemom@moviemom.com with “Midrange” in the subject line and tell me your favorite athlete.  Don’t forget your address!  (US addresses only.)  I’ll pick the winners at random on June 16.

Everyone deserves a second shot in the inspiring drama Midrange, available tomorrow, June 10, on DVD and Digital Platforms from Cinedigm.  Jason Fields wrote and stars in this touching film that follows a superstar athlete’s journey to finding faith and accepting God into his life. The film, centered on the power of belief and the importance of second chances, has garnered the support of multiple former and current professional athletes with a strong Christian background including Corey Maggette, Allan Houston, Anthony Tolliver, Kelenna Azubuike, Jerome Williams, Austin Daye, Roger Powell Jr., Greivis Vasquez, Romel Beck, Wayne Simien and Andre Brown.

Fields plays Damon Sharp, a college basketball player destined for the pros. With his college career at an end, Damon returns to his hometown to find his brother Darrin (Sean Douglas, “Days Of Our Lives”) consumed with drugs and alcohol and his mother (Susan Grace, You Don’t Mess With The Zohan) depressed and helpless. Seeking a better life for his family and himself, Damon is forced to decide between saving his brother and following his dream . As Damon reexamines his choices, and his relationship with his brother, he turns to faith to find a new understanding of perseverance, loyalty and love. The film addresses a secular struggle of balancing faith, family and career, and ultimately the critical choices that define a man’s character and reveal what’s most important in life. Here’s an exclusive clip.

The Woman in Gold
The very title is a form of theft. When Gustav Klimt painted the portrait that gives this film its name, he called it "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer."
