Eulis ‘Sonny’ Dewey is a preacher from Texas living a happy life with his beautiful wife Jessie. Suddenly his stable world crumbles: Jessie is having an affair with young minister Horace. Sonny gets enraged and hits Horace with a softball bat, putting him into a coma. After that he leaves town, takes a new name, ‘Apostle E.F.’ and goes to Louisiana. There he starts to work as a mechanic for local radio station owner Elmo, and Elmo lets him preach on the radio. E.F. starts to preach everywhere: on the radio, on the streets, and with his new friend, Reverend Blackwell he starts a campaign to renovate an old church.

Film Review

This is the only film I have given a 10 on this site. I find this movie fascinating and brilliantly portrayed by Mr. Duvall. He deserved an Oscar for this performance. Living in Texas (where the first part of the film is set) I know that the preaching he does in this movie seems as real as a Texas outdoor revival! He is a troubled man to be sure, but his character lifts all of us up with each step of the way in the movie. Farrah Fawcett plays a good part opposite him as his wife and the movie seems to split apart in the middle then pulls itself right back together again as Duvall commands the part. I can watch this over and over and still find parts which I love. It is like reading a spiritual book over and over and finding something better about it. I have recommended this to my friends to watch as I have only seen it this year (2006). A fine character study of a flawed man and his obsession with religion at any cost. Be sure to catch it.

When I saw the film with my lover he said, "Who knew he could preach!" when Duval performed his final sermon. It is an awe-inspiring performance. I am a pastor's kid and my father was good, Duval shows greatness. In the film Duval's character is deeply flawed but also deeply faithful. What makes this film great is a clear view of evil to redemption to punishment to resolution. In 97 there were only two truly moral flms. Very different films. Boogie Nights for family values and loyalty, and The Apostle about redemption. What and incredible year with two profound films in the same year.

The Apostle – Robert Duvall plays a cuckold preacher on the run in this film that Duvall also wrote and directed.This is a riveting movie from the git-go- Duvall nails Sonny or the apostle EF perfectly in this flick- as a matter fact the whole movie plays note perfect- you get a real sense of what religion adds to the lives of many who have not much else to latch onto- Duvall's character is a combination of saint and sinner- he lives to preach but he is not able to turn the other cheek.Farah Fawcett,Billy Bob Thornton,June Carter Cash,Walter Goggins and others round out the cast- but this is Duvall's show and he is excellent.
