NASHVILLE, TN (December 14, 2009) – Carman, the widely recognized Christian recording artist turned actor, is making his return to film after an eight-year hiatus from the big screen. The man who starred as Orlando Leone in the 2001 family hit, The Champion, is playing the lead role in the latest family release from Pure Flix Entertainment. The Book of Ruth will release nationally on DVD December 15 and is being distributed through EMI CMG.
The film, which shares the message of a triumphant love story in the face of adversity, chronicles the selfless journey of love and devotion seen through the eyes of a young widow named Ruth. Choosing to leave her homeland of Moab, she follows her mother-in-law Naomi to Israel after the death of her husband. Upon reaching Bethlehem, she meets and marries a man named Boaz, who is of the Royal House of Judah. In time, this chain of seemingly unrelated events sets the stage for the future of kings of the nation of Israel, and ultimately, the glorious coming of the Messiah.
Carman, who stars as Boaz in the film, had this to say about his most recent role.
“To work on a film that takes an in-depth look at conflicting relationship issues has been a great experience. From an acting perspective, it required each of us to take our performances to a new level, and artistically challenge anything we’ve done before. I believe everyone involved did just that. This film will be around for a long time."
The Book of Ruth is a Biblical Cinderella story from the archives of the royal Jewish bloodline, masterfully revealing the redemption of inheritance through the child Obed, who was the great grandfather of King David.
The film also stars Eleese Lester (Friday Night Lights) and newcomer Sherry Morris.
The DVD, which includes bonus featurettes including “The Making Of,” “Trailers,” and “Commentary,” will be available at all major Christian stores December 15.
