Redeeming Love (2022)
Filmed in Cape Town, Redeeming Love is a Christian romantic drama based on Francine Rivers’ bestselling novel of the same name, which was in turn inspired by the Biblical story of Hosea.
Set against the backdrop of the California Gold Rush in the Old West, the story follows Angel, a beautiful but brutalised sex worker in the town of Pair-a-Dice, and Michael, a farmer who has asked God to send him a wife. Sold into prostitution as a child, Angel knows nothing but abuse and betrayal. Can her heart ever be mended?
Abigail Cowen (Bloom in Fate: The Winx Saga, and Dorcas in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) stars as Angel, with Tom Lewis (Gentleman Jack’s Thomas Sowden) as Michael.
The film is rated 16 for mature themes, violence and sexual content, and the author’s profits from the film are donated to organisations working to prevent trafficking and support survivors of sex trafficking and abuse.
