What would Joshua do? You'll find out when the mysterious titular stranger (Tony Goldwyn) strolls into a modern-day small town in this well-meaning but flat parable. Let's see: He's an excellent woodworker, and when the suspicious local pastor (F. Murray Abraham) asks if he knows apostle Peter, you get the feeling he knows apostle Peter. Goldwyn helps to bring the community together by rebuilding a church and helping others rebuild their lives (even though he barely interacts with them).
By the time the predictable resurrection scene comes, the audience will be divided: Those looking for a Good Book-ish story will be sold; secular audiences will focus on the flick's low-budget production and trite stabs at humor. Only for the already devoted.
