At the End of the Day is a feature-length comedy written and directed by Kevin O’Brien.
After losing his wife and counseling practice, the only thing 42 dear old Dave Hopper has going for himself a part-time professorship at his alma mater, a growing Christian college. And the only reason he even got that job was because his previous professor, now ambitious dean, pulled a few strings.
The Dean’s plans for growth hit a snag when the property he wants to develop has been promised to a local gay support group – which has plans to open an LGBT homeless teen shelter if they can raise the money in time. The Dean is forced to take drastic measures. Dean offers Dave his dream job, but he only gets it if he goes undercover in the group as a gay man – the abomination he counsels against – and stops them from raising the funds needed to buy the property.
Dave reluctantly agrees, and for the first time, is met face-to-face with the community he has been battling his entire career. The awkward and emotional experiences that follow lead Dave on a journey of truth, revealing that, at the end of the day, life and love are not as black and white as he first thought.
I laughed, I cried, I was taken on a journey seeing faces of people I knew, reflections of me past and present, and a vision for what could be.
This was excellent. Laughed, cried and cringed...wonderful!
...a story that for some will be comforting, others courageous, others confrontational. But full of truth and love honesty and humility.
