Boasting several well-known actors, including former U.S. Sen. Fred Dalton Thompson, "Persecuted" plays off potential restrictions to First Amendment freedoms to weave a taut thriller with a timely message.
Eight-year-old James Higgins of Southeast was wearing white-but-grass-stained baseball pants and a dusty Boston Red Sox jersey when he mapped out his future — combining an aspiration typical of a boy his age with a more unusual goal:
"This film has much better cinematography than other Christian-based movies," Higgins said in a telephone interview. "The music is much better, (and) the acting is much better."
Higgins, who admits when he was 20 he set a "bucket list" goal of appearing in a motion picture with a speaking part, said the script’s appeal beyond traditional "Christian" elements of a personal fall and redemption also appealed to him.
