Watch Have a Little Faith (TV Movie 2011) - Alternative Versions.
At age 82, Mitch Albom's former rabbi Albert Lewis wants the famous
Detroit sportswriter to give his eulogy when the time comes. Albom
makes a visit to his former home town in New Jersey, where Rabbi Lewis
has served a congregation for about 50 years. Albom doesn't feel
worthy, especially since he is no longer a practicing Jew and, in fact,
he has married a Christian (who apparently isn't active either).
Nevertheless, Rabbi Lewis says he is the one to do the job, and over
the next eight years, Albom makes several visits back home and even
attends some Sabbath services, where the good rabbi is determined to
continue working and inspiring his flock even as his health declines.
In flashbacks, Henry is a young boy with six brothers and sisters in
Brooklyn in the early 60s. He witnesses his mother shoot his father (we
don't actually see what happens, but we hear the shot and see the
mother carrying the gun). In jail, Henry's mom tells him to continue
going to church and to one day become a minister. Henry's dad, who is
at home recovering, has the greater influence on his son. He has spent
his whole life hustling, meaning making his living on the wrong side of
the law, and not apologizing for it. Now he describes himself as "a
cripple". We don't see what happens from there, but many years later,
Henry too is hustling to get by.
After time in prison, Henry gets out and works as an exterminator, but
it is not enough for him and his wife, especially when the wife becomes
pregnant. So he turns to illegal activities, with Donnie acting as his
supplier. He is selling these white bricks, the nature of which we are
not told, but with his friends one night, he realizes they smoked all
his stuff, and Donnie won't be happy when he doesn't get his money. So
Henry has to turn to robbing people.
Eventually, Henry realizes he will die without divine intervention. He
pleads with God to rescue him, and if He does, Henry will serve Him.
One day Albom discovers the I Am My Brother's Keeper, in what used to
be the largest Presbyterian church not only in Detroit but also the
entire Midwest. The church is falling apart, but Henry, the pastor, and
the members are happy and determined to keep moving forward despite all
their obstacles. Albom sees an inspiring story that he can tell his
readers, and an opportunity to move forward in his faith journey.
I fully expect Martin Landau as the rabbi and especially Laurence
Fishburne as Henry to be nominated for some sort of award. There won't
be room for both at Emmy time, I'm sure, but one of them has to be
nominated. Rabbi Lewis is not only funny and friendly but an
inspirational leader who is determined to make Albom see what he is
capable of. And Fishburne shows us a wide range. He is quite convincing
when preaching sermons at his church, and yet he is good at being bad.
Bradley Whitford doesn't make me forget he is Bradley Whitford, but
that's because I know him from several roles. He is quite good as
Another standout performer is Anthony Castelow as Cass, a leader in the
Detroit church who has a disability but doesn't let that stop him.
For the most part, this is a family-friendly movie like other Hallmark
Hall of Fame productions. But I question the decision to show so much
of Henry's life before he found redemption. It is helpful to his
ministry that he knows the life so many who turn to him have led. But
did we really need to see so much detail? It is finally mentioned that
he sold drugs, and crack cocaine is also mentioned, although it is
never stated what he is doing when the "product" is on screen. I can't
honestly recommend the whole movie to younger kids.
But the inspiring story does make the whole movie worthwhile.
