What happened to Mary after Christ died? And how did Peter deal with being the rock Christ commissioned him to be?
This is precisely the story that is explored in "Full of Grace", the tender, contemplative and beautiful new film from writer/director Andrew Hyatt. The story focuses on Mary's final days on Earth before she is assumed into Heaven, and it intimately captures the relationship between her and her son's successor, Peter.
"Full of Grace" is a new kind of Christian film, one that deviates from the typical model of most Christian films. Described by Hyatt as a "cinematic prayer," the film is perhaps the first of its kind. The first 15 minutes of the film is intentionally paced slowly so as to prepare the audience and put them in the right mind set for viewing the film.
"Everything about the film is intentional," he said. "This experience requires something of the audience to put in front of the film. The film, like scripture, should speak to you wherever you're at in your life."
