Wait Your Turn

Another new Christian movie, Wait Your Turn, has just premiered its trailer!  

From screenwriter Maude von Ehnrekrook(awesome name!) and director Ron Newcomb, this film tells the story of "Eve Cassidy... young, single and disappointed by the dating scene until an old friend from college, Thad, comes suddenly back into her life.  Eve rediscovers the joys that chastity brings as she and Thad grow ever closer, but can it last?  Thad's shadowy past has broken her heart before.  To solve that question, both must decide if the other is someone worth keeping..."

Sounds like a pretty awful romance-tearjerker, but the trailer is actually really good.  The acting looks top notch, and the films looks like it could be interesting.  The only gripe I have is that the video quality is all over the place in the trailer, ranging from looking great to looking awful.  Not sure if that is the fault of the trailer being put online poorly, or if the film has visual issues.  Also, the trailer doesn't hint at what Thad's "shadowy past" might be, but I'd wager that its not all that shadowy.  Be sure to check out the trailer at the film's official website.  

The only bad news is that there is no set release date for this film yet, so who knows when we'll get a chance to see it.

I find it interesting that this is the second Christian romance movie of 2008 that has a theme of Christian singles(or divorcees) re-connecting with that "first love" from their youth.  The other film that I'm talking about is Me & You, Us, Forever(due out on DVD Sept. 9).  Interesting that this seems such a strong theme, but I guess first loves are always something that you remember for the rest of your life.  High Fidelity taught us all about that.  We really need a Christian High Fidelity, preferably directed by Stephen Frears and starring John Cusack.  Maybe more Christian writers just need to read Nick Hornby for inspiration.  

Anyway, check out Wait Your Turn's website, where you can read some cast and crew blogs(which haven't been updated since filming wrapped, unfortunatly), as well as read about the usual cast & crew info.
