Can an actor take on a role in a film if they don't share the beliefs or themes the movie is promoting? Australian Radha Mitchell didn't grow up with the Christian beliefs referenced in THE SHACK, but she still found it an intriguing project although her agent tried to talk her out of starring in a "religious film." In our interview with the actress, she discusses her decision to take the role that tackles the Christian faith.
After suffering a family tragedy, Mack Phillips spirals into a deep depression that causes him to question his innermost beliefs. Facing a crisis of faith, he receives a mysterious letter urging him to an abandoned shack in the Oregon wilderness. Despite his doubts, Mack journeys to the shack and encounters an enigmatic trio of strangers led by a woman named Papa. Through this meeting, Mack finds important truths that will transform his understanding of his tragedy and change his life forever.
THE SHACK is currently playing in movie theaters.
