Inspired by a true story, Deadline is a powerful movie that viewers most often say reminds them of To Kill a Mockingbird.

" Deadline is a powerful movie with a very strong Christian, redemptive worldview about the search for truth and justice...Matt and Bullock’s adventures in solving this case take them into the communities, homes and hearts of both whites and blacks."
~ Renee Green, Movie Guide

“Deadline is an important, terrific movie, with the kind of compelling story and fascinating characters that made The Help so engaging. Beautifully acted and directed.”
