Sister Aimee: The Aimee Semple McPherson Story

Famous L.A. evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson (Michaels), founder of the Foursquare Church, disappears from a beach one day in 1926. She reappears a month later, claiming to have been kidnapped, but her story is suspect and rumors fly that the married McPherson was having a tryst with a lover. Rossi then takes a sympathetic look at McPherson's complicated life, beginning with her growing up on a Canadian farm to her conversion and ministry and her problem-plagued personal life.

The Greatest of All Time. Four Stars out of Four! ****

Richard Rossi is well-deserving of the accolades and acclaim he's received for writing, directing, and acting in this low budget masterpiece about a healer who cannot heal herself. The International Guerrilla Film Association voted this the number one film on their top 100 and Rich Rossi was also a finalist for best feature at Milan, Italy film festival. Although shot on a $300 consumer camcorder, Rossi's genius is that he turned this into an advantage, giving the film a 1920's feel with sepia tones, jittery silent movie interludes, and drawing out of the entire cast strong performances across the board. Rich Rossi is hilarious and charismatic as Aimee's third husband, David Hutton, Mimi Michaels at the tender age of 20 portrays the miracle woman masterfully, Rance Howard is nuanced as Aimee's father, and Teres Byrne is a deft performer as Aimee's dragon-lady mother.
