Sherwood movie goes national

July 22, 2006

Albany - - Sherwood Baptist Church's movie "Facing the Giants" is getting national distribution.

The inspirational film about a losing high school football team is making its way to 400 theatres across the country.

This despite a dispute over what rating the movie should receive.

Members of Sherwood donated money for the $100,000 movie.

Facing the Giants will be released in September.

In 2003, the church made a movie called "Flywheel" which played locally.
