Released by the AFA division American Family Studios and co-written and co-directed by brother-and-sister team Jeremy White and Kendra White, “Summer Snow” saw a successful multi-weekend run this summer in Tupelo, Miss., where AFA is headquartered, and Lexington, Ky., where the movie was filmed.
The movie has been called “wonderful,” “inspiring,” “exceptional,” “amazing” and “uplifting.” Providing a wonderful opportunity for families and small groups to gather and discuss issues of family and faith, it serves as a perfect gift opportunity for friends and family members of all ages.
Starring David Chisum, Cameron Goodman, Garrett Backstrom, Brett Rice and Rachel Eggleston, “Summer Snow” tells the story of 8-year-old Hallie Benson (Eggleston), a small girl with a very big heart. Whether baking cookies for a grumpy neighbor or selling toothbrushes to help a friend, Hallie always thinks of others. Unfortunately, her “creative” ways of helping people often leave her father, Dan (Chisum), with a mess to clean up. Dan struggles to keep it all together after his wife’s death. He doesn’t cook, do hair or know how to help his three children without his beautiful wife and her unshakeable faith in God.
“Summer Snow’s” successful television debut on UPTV in August set network records, becoming the second-most-popular movie in the history of the network and also the No. 1 movie premiere thus far in 2014 among women ages 25-54. “Summer Snow” continues to air on UPTV.
