‘Ordinary Angels’ Trailer: Hilary Swank Is A Miracle To Alan Ritchson In New Faith-Based Drama

Hilary Swank is just full of miracles and she’s going to use them to help Alan Ritchson in the new trailer for Ordinary Angels. The latest faith-based film by director Jon Gunn follows a hairdresser who befriends a single father of two daughters in desperate need of help when one is in need of a liver transplant.

The screenplay is by Kelly Fremon Craig, who recently wrote Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. Gunn is known for directing The Case for Christ and for penning Jesus Revolution, which was a hit earlier this year.

Swank is a two-time Oscar winner for Boys Don’t Cry and Million Dollar Baby. Ritchson flexes his muscles in the Prime Video series Reacher.

Others in the cast are Nancy Travis, Tamala Jones, Amy Acker, Drew Powell, Skywalker Hughes, and Emily Mitchell.

Here’s the synopsis: “Based on a remarkable true story, “Ordinary Angels” centers on Sharon (Hilary Swank), a fierce but struggling hairdresser in small-town Kentucky who discovers a renewed sense of purpose when she meets Ed (Alan Ritchson), a widower working hard to make ends meet for his two daughters. With his youngest daughter waiting for a liver transplant, Sharon sets her mind to helping the family and will move mountains to do it. What unfolds is the inspiring tale of faith, everyday miracles, and ordinary angels.”

Ordinary Angels opens in theaters on October 13th.
