DIVINE ACCESS

“…subtle and insightful humor, Divine Access is a quiet gem.” 
“A sharp and funny satire…”
-Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter

 

 

SYNOPSIS

DIVINE ACCESS is equal parts comedy and drama.  Set in the south, it’s a road movie, a buddy picture and an often sweet, thought-provoking story of redemption. 

Jack Harriman (Billy Burke) has seen it all.  Keenly aware of Jack’s penchant for discrediting religious zealots, Jack is asked to join a cable access television show produced by his friend Bob McCord (Patrick Warburton).   After humiliating the current host of the show, the Reverend Guy Roy Davis (Gary Cole), Jack’s popularity turns him into a spiritual celebrity and he takes to the road on a multi-city speaking tour accompanied by Nigel a self-proclaimed “catcher” (Joel David Moore).   Along the way Jack and Nigel are joined by Amber (Dora Madison), a down on her luck call-girl, and Marian (Sarah Shahi), an enigmatic beauty who challenges Jack’s beliefs and questions whether he has some deeper calling. 

Forces both natural and supernatural lead Jack on a journey to discover his own spiritual truth, culminating in a final showdown with Guy Roy.  Ultimately, DIVINE ACCESS is a story of family, friendship and faith.

Our Best Bets for the 9th Annual Dallas International Film Festival...
"The premise reminds me a little of Steve Martin's Leap of Faith but Divine Access had me at Patrick Warburton and Gary Cole. Both of these actors can make anything hilarious. If we could get them working together more often, that would be just great."
