A new faith-based film shot in Winnipeg in 2022 will hit theatres early next year. 

Ordinary Angels, starring two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank and “Reacher” star Alan Ritchson, is based on a remarkable true story. 

The film centres on Sharon Stevens (Hilary Swank), a fierce but struggling hairdresser in small-town Kentucky who discovers a renewed sense of purpose when she meets Ed Schmitt (Alan Ritchson), a widower working hard to make ends meet for his two daughters. With his youngest daughter waiting for a liver transplant, Sharon sets her mind to helping the family and will move mountains to do it. What unfolds is the inspiring tale of faith, everyday miracles, and ordinary angels.

“The story of Sharon Stevens and the Schmitt family is a powerful reminder that helping others is how we heal ourselves. I can’t think of a message I’d rather share with the world right now, and I’m honoured to be telling it with such a fearless and talented cast,” said Director Jon Gunn.

Ordinary Angels is the highest-tested film in Kindom Company history.

"I was drawn to this beautiful true story because it’s such a powerful reminder that angels reside everywhere among us. And that faith, hope, grit and positivity are all powerful fuel for miracles. It’s also a story about the power of organ donation - something incredibly near and dear to my heart. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of this story and message,” said Hilary Swank.

This film comes on the heels of  Kingdom Story Company and Lionsgate's JESUS REVOLUTION, which was released on February 24 and has become a breakout hit for the companies, taking in more than $40 million at the box office. 

Ordinary Angels will hit theatres nationwide on February 23, 2024.
