About the Movie
A heart-warming story about the transformative power of love and redemption, I’m In Love With A Church Girl debuts on DVD, Blu-ray, VOD and digital January 14 from Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM), following its successful theatrical release this fall. Based on the real-life events of executive producer Galley Molina, the film stars Jeff “Ja Rule” Atkins (Once Upon A Time In Brooklyn), Adrienne Bailon (The Coalition, The Cheetah Girls), Stephen Baldwin (The Usual Suspects), Vincent Pastore (“The Sopranos”) and Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs). The film, the first from RGM-NewBreed, received the coveted Dove Foundation “Family Approved” seal of approval, including a review that reads in part, “this one should not be missed.” The film was executive-produced by RGM-NewBreed founder and CEO Galley Molina along with vice president and Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Israel Houghton, known around the world as worship leader for Pastor Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church, America’s largest congregation.

Miles Montego (Atkins) is a retired high-level drug trafficker who has gone legitimate—though he has not yet left his old friends and his old lifestyle behind. When he meets Vanessa (Bailon), a “church girl” in every sense of the word, he is drawn to her spirituality even though she’s nothing like the girls he’s used to dating. As Miles struggles to stay on the right side of the law, both he and Vanessa find that their faith in God— and each other—is tested to its limits.

An inspiring story about God’s power, the I’m In Love With A Church Girl Blu-ray and DVD include a “making of” featurette, deleted scenes and an inside look at the life and story of - the real Miles Montego.

My Take on the Movie
This movie was inspired by a true story. The story is about the life of Miles Montego.

Miles Montego is being watched by the police. He has an expensive car, lives in a mansion, and doesn't appear to have employment that would bring in that kind of money. This is a movie that is quite emotional, spiritual, and shows the value of family and friends. It illustrates the power of prayer during a time when a miracle needed to occur. It is a story of redemption, forgiveness, love , understanding, and a man's journey to find God and a faith based life. It is a story about letting go so God can make things happen in your life.

Vanessa was the catalyst for Miles to have his life changing experiences and opportunities. Miles makes an amazing transformation in his life. Vanessa and Miles were tested along the way in their relationship but their love and commitment to each other and God kept them together.

I believer that you will enjoy this movie and the message about life.
