“The film was made specifically for and about Christian women and is meant to be a beacon of light that encourages viewers to exemplify Christ's love and commitment in their lives.” - The Christian Post
“Only God Can”
Set in Charleston, S.C., “Only God Can” is the story of five women who were once sorority sisters at the College of Charleston. Featuring an all-star cast, the lifelong friends, now middle-aged, are played by five mainstream actors: Lisa Sheridan, ("Sandal" and "CSI"), Vanessa Evigan ("How I Met Your Mother"), Robbi Chong ("ER"), Donna D'Errico ("Austin Powers" and "Reno 911"), and Debra Capps (“The First Five Years”).
Each year, the friends have a reunion weekend that proves to be a struggle for the Christians in the group, Sara and Grace. Sara and Grace’s friends continually misunderstand their love for God, until a tragedy occurs, and each woman is forced to seek the deeper meaning of life.
“Only God Can” was made by Inspire You Entertainment, a production company that “produces and distributes faith based films that provide viewers with inspiration and encouragement as they navigate through life’s everyday challenges.”
Inspire You Entertainment certainly achieved their mission in “Only God Can.” Through the everyday challenges of five relatable women, the film explores some powerful themes, including faith, overcoming addictions, single-parenting, second chances in love, persecution of the faith, and freedom in forgiveness. However, the biggest theme of the film is the importance of friendship and its power to bring others to God.
