The Holy Roller

Kiwi comedy-drama about a rural pastor who attempts to convert an inner-city nightclub into a church.

"A shepherd without a flock, Pastor Luke (ANgus Benfield) struggles to attract a single congregant to his rural services. Moving to the city in search of work, he meets feisty musician, Kate (Victoria Abbott), and her brother, Simon (Jeremy Brennan), a debt-ridden nightclub owner whom he revives from a near-fatal overdose. Inspired by this ‘miracle’, Simon wants to transform his nightclub into a church, using Luke as its preacher. But the city's criminals are not so pleased with the dwindling levels of vice on the streets. Bowing to underworld pressure, Simon betrays Luke, delivering him into the hands of arch-crime boss, Mr Rothschild." (Official Synopsis)

...the real stars of this genial crowdpleaser are Benfield's bumbling, bumpkin Bible-basher and the multi-talented Abbott. From him taking confessions in the nightclub toilets to her Britney Spears-esque debut video, there are plenty of lightly comic highlights to enjoy.
