With awesome sympathy and aggregate regard, essayist and chief Robert Duvall has made a profoundly captivating dramatization about the fall and reclamation of a Pentecostal evangelist from Texas. Dissimilar to other screen exaggerations of restoration evangelists, The Evangelist catches the man in full with both his defects and his better focuses.
After his significant other (Farrah Fawcett) takes his gathering from him and abandons him for a more youthful pastor, “Sonny” Dewey (Robert Duvall) strikes the man in the head with a baseball cap and escapes town. Deserting his dearest mother (June Carter Cash) and his two youngsters, Sonny changes himself into the Apostle. He persuades a resigned dark clergyman to begin “The One Way Road to Heaven” Holiness Temple.
