Join us after the Oct. 20th screening for a special conversation with star Anna Margaret Hollyman about the process of creating the character of Sister Aimee. This discussion will be especially interesting to all actors and directors. Come ready to ask questions.

The semi-fictional misadventures of a wildly popular 1920s televangelist and faith healer named Sister Aimee Semple McPherson are the subject of this spirited modern comedy.

REVIEWS

SISTER AIMEE merrily serves up an inspirational, oddly amusing story with a compelling relationship at its center.” – Kate Erbland, IndieWire

“This is a lighthearted comedy about resourceful females far ahead of their time. It’s a frothy, beguiling, and utterly charming movie that celebrates the ingenious, albeit shady Sister Aimee McPherson in the most entertaining of ways.” – Norman Gidney, Film Threat
