At the Movies: I Can Only Imagine

"I Can Only Imagine" is the surprise hit film about the writing of the hit Christian rock song by the band, MercyMe. With 2.5 million copies sold, "I Can Only Imagine" is said to be the best-selling Christian pop music single ever. The movie tells the story of MercyMe lead vocalist Bart Millard. The song was inspired by the death of Millard's father. Millard and his father had a contentious relationship. The movie is anchored by a strong performance by Dennis Quaid, who plays Millard's father. J. Michael Finley, a Broadway actor in his big-screen feature-film debut, is excellent at Bart, the songwriter and son.

Paul Willistein of the Lehigh Valley Press reviews the family drama.
