Synopsis

A well-known minister is on his deathbed. His family must grapple with the realities of their dysfunction, and find peace.

Dove Review

The Pastor’s Daughters immediately thrusts us into the pain and anguish of life on the verge of loss. Yet the life in question, a prominent pastor, husband, and father, does not take center stage. The film takes place almost like a theatrical play—in a hospital where a family awaits good news of the pastor’s health. These characters include his wife, three daughters, an aunt, and two men with nearly questionable motives. Together, they concoct a stew of past and present pain that is challenged all at once on the pastor’s deathbed.

The film fearlessly juggles issues of faith and biblical living during just about every moment of its 74-minute runtime. If the film feels claustrophobic or challenging to watch at times, it is because there is a raw truth to be found here. For fans of faith-based films, this is a great and intense choice.

Due to some mature thematic content, Dove is, all the same, proud to award the film its approval for Ages 12+.
