Inspired by a true story, Deadline is a powerful movie that viewers most often say reminds them of To Kill a Mockingbird.

" Deadline is a powerful movie with a very strong, Christian redemptive worldview about the search for truth and justice...Matt and Bullock’s adventures in solving this case take them into the communities, homes and hearts of both whites and blacks."

Renee Green, Movie Guide

Deadline is an important, terrific movie, with the kind of compelling story and fascinating characters that made The Help so engaging. Beautifully acted and directed.”
~ Dr. Linda Seger, Script Consultant on over 2,000 scripts and author of Making a Good Script Great

“I cannot wait to see Deadline again. It's been so much on my mind since the screening that I am hungry to see, hear, learn more about it. It's a wonderful movie, full of great stories and beautifully executed.”
~ Hank Klibanoff, Pulitzer Prize winner, Professor of Journalism, Emory University, Managing Editor, The Civil Rights Cold Case Project

"Curt Hahn has transformed Mark Ethridge’s story into a film that’s a larger heirloom of the American South. Deadline's greatest gift may be its ability to tap into the stains and fault lines of the South, but also into the region’s unfaltering resilience and ability to forgive and redeem."

~ Audra D. S. Burch, The Miami Herald

Deadline is a film about a murder mystery - grounded in fact, documented by journalistic credibility and dramatized in a way that is both entertaining and chilling.”

John Seigenthaler, Founder, The First Amendment Center

Deadline packs a powerful punch…a film that goes by quickly but has much to say while it does…appropriately economical when it comes to making its case without belaboring points, but it is not economical with the truth.”

~ Evans Donnell, Art Now Nashville

“I loved Deadline. It touched my heart. No, it touched my soul.”
~ Mike Pandey, Filmmaker and Chair of the steering committee for the International Film Festival of India

Deadline is a powerful movie with a conscience. Once in a while, a movie is made that affects social consciousness and creates a conduit for important change in one’s self, in one’s country. Deadline is one of these movies.”

~ Donna Peerce, Movie Blog

" 4 Doves! Deadline is a compelling and powerfully told film and we gladly award it our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for ages twelve plus. This film shines as a beacon in the dark cesspool of racism."

~ Edwin L. Carpenter, Dove Foundation
