The Resurrection of Gavin Stone is a heartfelt comedy-drama from 2017 about a former child star, Gavin Stone (Brett Dalton), who finds himself in a bit of a rut. When he gets arrested for his wild behavior, Gavin is sentenced to community service at a local church in his hometown. This is where his life takes an unexpected turn. Gavin assumes he will be spending his time cleaning floors, but much to his surprise, he is cast in the church's upcoming Easter production of Jesus Christ Superstar. Though initially hesitant, Gavin quickly realizes that this might be his chance to reignite his career and get back into the acting game.

Despite his initial intentions to use the play as a way to further his own career, Gavin soon finds himself becoming more invested in the project and the community it creates. Along the way, he gets to know some of the other people involved in the production, including the director, Kelly (Anjelah Johnson-Reyes), and the pastor of the church, Allen Richardson (Neil Flynn). As he spends more time with the group, Gavin begins to rediscover his own faith and the importance of community.

The Resurrection of Gavin Stone is a story of redemption and second chances. As Gavin strives to remake his image and career, he discovers that there is much more to life than just fame and fortune. The film explores themes of forgiveness, self-discovery, and the true meaning of family.

Brett Dalton's performance as Gavin Stone is excellent. He effectively captures the vulnerability and desperation of a former child star trying to regain his footing in the entertainment industry. Anjelah Johnson-Reyes is equally compelling as the driven director, Kelly. Neil Flynn provides some comic relief as the quirky pastor, but also delivers some of the film's most heartfelt moments.

The production of Jesus Christ Superstar provides a unique backdrop for the film. The play is an excellent metaphor for Gavin's own journey of redemption and his eventual realization that there is more to life than just fame and fortune. The scenes from the play are well-staged, and the catchy music will stick with viewers long after the film has ended.

The Resurrection of Gavin Stone is a feel-good movie that will leave viewers with a renewed sense of faith and hope. While there are some predictable moments, the film is still enjoyable and the characters are easy to root for.
