Praise for The Song:
"Captivating, gritty, and tenderThe Song is a powerful faith-based movie about redeeming love. The foolishness and wisdom of Solomon is woven throughout each scene. Masterful acting portrays the messiness of real life temptations gone awry when greed and selfishness prevail and focus on faith in God is lost. The Song is guaranteed to impact lives.”
- Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, EWTN Host, Author
“This movie, based on the‘Song of Songs,’ leads the viewer to yearn for a faithful love of such deep and lasting beauty, and helps us appreciate the sacrifices such a love requires. Our world needs such a compelling witness, which is too often missed in the glitter of today’s fast-paced culture of impulsive and shallow relationships.”
- Most Reverend Joseph Kurtz, D.D., Archbishop of Louisville
"The Song is like a beautiful song we can't get out of our heads or a fine wine we can't wait to share with a loved one. Tender, challenging and packed with amazing music, this film has the potential to change hearts and lives. See it, sing along, and know that you are forever and unconditionally loved."

"The Song is a 'masterpiece of the reality.' It is a movie that demonstrates not only the devastation that researchers say that 30-60% of married couples experience, but it also shows the redemption that can be achieved when infidelity is experienced in a marriage. "
