rebelling against low expectations

The Widow’s Might: In Theaters Starting April 13th



Some exciting news — and a call to action! John Robert Moore, a 19-year-old rebelutionary from Texas — whose film The Widow’s Might beat out Fireproof and Expelled for the Best of Festival and Audience Choice Award at the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival in January — passes on this update: The Widow’s Might is getting a limited theatrical release across the country, starting April 13th — just about two weeks from today.

If you want to help spread the message that young people are capable of far more than what society expects, this is a terrific opportunity to support a long-time rebelutionary who is making some waves. As with any theatrical release (and even more so for limited runs) the first week is critical.

We’re encouraging you to do hard things — make sure you and your family (and your friends) make it to the nearest screening. What’s more, we encourage you to champion this effort by spreading the word. You can find a list of theaters and times by clicking on the above image (or just click here). Catch the movie trailer below, which can be imbedded on your blog as well.

UPDATE: Even if there are no showings in your area, check out the location listings and alert friends or relatives in areas where it is. Every bit helps!

For more background, read this letter John wrote to rebelutionaries last year.

  • Darn, It would have been nice to get it out here in Italy. I heard this story, and was impressed. Hope it does well in the box office, and that it gets lots of attention in the media.

  • Chris, i’m sure that someone will record it and put it on youtube or hulu. I can’t becuase i dont know how, but i’m sure someone else will.

    I really want to see this movie. I’m going to look for it near me. Thanks for posting about it.

  • What an oppurtunity!! I love the movie.

    Forgive me for doubting you but is this an April fools joke? It is April 1st so I’m wary of everything right now….

  • Wow, I was surprised to not see Phoenix, Arizona on the list (that’s where I live). We’re such a huge city we usually get everything!
    Is there a way I could help bring A Widow’s Might to Phoenix?

  • Aw, sad, it’s nowhere near me! But, that’s probably because I live in the middle of nowhere. 🙂 I hope it does really well!

  • How exciting! 😀 And what a great example of doing hard things. I will be praying that his film has a great impact on people. I’m definitely going to try to go see it. 😉

  • Rats! It’s nowhere near where I live. Despite that fact,I will pray for its success. Does anyone know if the commercial is on youtube? I could put it up on my channel and promote it that way.Thanks!

  • I wish that I could go suport this film but sadly it is not playing near where I live. I am praying for it’s success.

  • I just have to say, my family bought the movie and I think it’s great! I would encourage everyone who can to go see it!

  • awww man! The closest location to me is about 3 hours away 🙁 But that is really awesome that it’s going to be in theatres for awhile! 🙂

  • I echo Becky Lynn. I don’t live in Arizona, but am wondering if there is anyway to get the movie in whatever city we’re in (or one nearby)? Any thoughts?

  • I APOLOGIZE FOR THE LAST COMMENT I LEFT ABOVE! I looked at the theatres wrong, there IS one near where I live. My advice to ALL rebelutionaries:print off the theatre listing, and use a ruler to read each and every line. Then, highlight the areas that are closest to where you live. God bless!

  • Hey guys, i’m reading your book now so far it’s awesome! are you guys going to tour in Canada this summer or in the future summers?

  • I am sooo excited for John and his crew, but also somewhat worried. I am afraid that the movie critics are going to make fun of him and homeschoolers. Don’t get me wrong, I watched “The Widow’s Might” and enjoyed it very much, but I was also looking at it already knowing that it was made by a small group in their beginning stages of filmmaking. But most people are just going to watch this movie and make fun of it. They will look at it and say “Is this the best homeschoolers can do?” not even taking into consideration that this is his first attempt.

  • By the way everyone- I just made a group on Facebook called “Prayer and Mutual Support for the crew of “A Widow’s Might”!” Please join if you would like to show your support there. =) I hope this was an ok place to announce this. =)

    Love in Christ,


  • There is not one in Dallas TX? That is very surprising. I will not be able to go unfortunately

  • Oh I hope it comes to D.C.! I will alert the troops and we will have to get some friends and family to go to see it if it comes to our area!

  • @Katie Nelson – Yes, it will be on DVD sometime in the future, I think they are planning on a summer DVD release, but it is all subject to change. 🙂

  • Praise God!

    I have this movie and it is excellent!

    May God continue to be glorified through The Widow’s Might.

  • I am going to try to get my family to go and see it. Also I will tell my friends. I’m from Texas too, and we like to support our felllow Texans.

  • I just got the DVD in the mail on Tuesday! I hope to watch it soon! It must be GOOD if it beat Fierproof!

  • I can’t wait to tell others about this! My mother downloaded the movie from and we all loved it!

  • Hi, i am reading your book and love it… It kind of inspired me to start my own blog just with my thoughts as a teenager looking at the stresses and other things teenagers have.. thanks for the inspiration,

  • This is fantastic! The movie looks top-notch and I’m eager to see it. Not quite close enough in a theater, but hopefully we can be a support by buying the DVD.

  • Well, even though it’s not close to me, 🙁 I gave some friends of mine a heads up, since it’ll be in their area. See, I’m not completely useless. 😉

  • Looks like a great movie! It isn’t playing anywhere in my state (NY) though:( When can I get it on DVD?

  • Sounds awesome! And it’s playing near me! I’m really REALLY going to try to go with some family and friends! Thanks for sharing!

  • Wow! I’ll definitely see it…once it’s screened on Mexico if ever that happens. Guess I’ll have to wait for the DVD. Good job, John!

  • A must-see movie, people! John Moore has done a FANTASTIC job with the cinematography in this movie and has provided a flick that EVERYONE in the family can watch with no worries. I had the opportunity this year to attend the San Antonio Independent Film Festival. There I watched Moore and co. receive the 101,000 dollar prize money for best film and an overwhelming majority of the audiences votes. Join me in supporting this god-honoring, epistomologically self-conscious movie; it will be worth the ten dollars!

  • Oh… I wish so badly that they could have it in San Anotnio! Does anyone know if there is a way for you to request a movie to come to your city???

  • I’m going to try to go see it on the 14th. Because of the distance I’ll have to travel and the show times and being in college, that’s the only showing I’ll have a chance of making. I hope this does really well and the message spreads! Young people can do big things!

  • wow!!! sounds like a great movie. im upset that its not showing anywhere around where i live. ( in ohio) we are pretty far away from everything lol. id really like to see it. i pray it does well!!!!! God bless!!!

  • Can’t wait to see it! I live in NC so I thankfully only have about an hour drive to one theater where it will be shown! Looks like it goes great with Do Hard Things!

  • Mr. Geoff Botkin (I believe) said this is a groundbreaking film in Christian filmmaking, and I agree with him. This is the best independent Christian film I have ever seen (although it ties with Fireproof). If you can go see this film, do try to go see it.


  • Are they going to put it out on film? It looks like such a good movie but it isn’t coming anywhere near where I live.

  • its not coming anywhere near me but, it sounds like a great movie i would love to see it!!! i hope it comes out on dvd!!!

  • i havent heard of this move, but it looks really good! They have not had any other commercials about it, is it from the people who made fireproof and facing the giants?

  • I’m hoping to convince my parents that it’s worthwhile setting foot in a movie theater for this. 🙂 In any case, I know we’ll be getting the DVD.

  • We just purchased the movie yesterday and sat down to watch tonight. It was incredible! The music and vocals were amazing and to think it was spearheaded by a 19 year old! Thumbs up to the film and all those that put so much effort into making it come about:-)
    God Bless!

  • I just went to see it! The singing was wonderful, the message was clear, the scenery was beautiful, the acting was top-rate!

    My only complaint was that the characters lacked diversity and development. If you heard someone say a sentence, you couldn’t attach it to exactly one individual from the film. You couldn’t say, “Oh, that’s Caroline” or “Only Bill would say something like that” They were all maybe a little too “like-minded”. They had no individual character traits, and they didn’t develop. No one changed, no one progressed, no one fell behind.

    But all that might have been cut out due to time restrictions. And none of it was so horrible to make me not recommend it highly to my friends an relatives! On the whole it was a wonderful movie and well worth investing in!

  • Hey, anyone know if it’s out in England? You’re saying you can buy it on DVD now as well? Cool, I’ve got fireproof and it’s prequel, facing the giants, on DVD ATM and they’re great 😀
