Blue Like Jazz is a 2012 American film based on the semi-autobiographical novel of the same name written by Donald Miller. Directed by the Christian musician, producer and film director Steve Taylor, Blue Like Jazz stars Marshall Allman as Don Miller, the film's central protagonist. Don Miller is a nineteen-year-old college student who has grown up firmly in Bible Belt Evangelicalism. He is a devout Christian but wants more from his spiritual life than what he has experienced in countless evangelical churches that all seem somehow just the same. Urged to get out of his comfort zone by his secular father, Don transfers from a conservative Texas Junior College to the extremely liberal Reed College in the Pacific Northwest. All Don's life he has heard how godless and anti-religious the Pacific Northwest is, and his initial impression is that Reed will be everything his mother and youth pastor back home told him he should fear. Suddenly the odd man out in a sea of students with alternative lifestyles, alternative haircuts and piercings who proudly boast that Reed is "the most godless campus on Earth," Don is forced to face every presupposition about humanity and God that his strict Baptist upbringing forced into him. Desperate to make friends and find himself in his new environment, Don joins an activist group on campus and begins the process of bridging his life in Texas with his new life in the Pacific Northwest. Along the way, he meets an eclectic group of students from backgrounds completely different than his own that force him to question everything and break out of his conservative evangelical shell. Exposed and vulnerable, Don connects with his spiritual life in new and refreshing ways and becomes an evangelical in a land that evangelicals fear to tread. Blue Like Jazz is rated PG-13 for mature themes, sexuality, drug and alcohol content and language.
