The Masked Saint will screen at 7:00 pm at SilverCity Sudbury. There will be a catered reception following the film at Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel. The Masked Saint [Warren P. Sonoda, Canada, 2014]
The Masked Saint revolves around the life of Chris Samuels (Brett Granstaff), a professional wrestler and family man who realizes he needs something more. His calling to become a pastor prompts him to retire from wrestling and move with his wife (Lara-Jean Chorostecki) and daughter (T.J. McGibbon) to a small town. Yet the battles he faced in the ring are minor compared to the challenges he
must overcome at his new church. From an overbearing congregant (Patrick McKenna) and failing attendance to mounting bills for church
repairs, Samuels has his hands full. When Samuels stumbles onto a fight on the seedy side of town, his wrestling skills take down the assailant and a masked vigilante is born. His talent, as well as his violent secret identity, begins to overshadow his calling as a Pastor and it takes his faith and family to remind him about grace, goodness and the truth.
The Masked Saint was filmed in Sault Ste. Marie.
