Forgiving the Franklins is a unique parable about shame, inhibition, and religious intolerance. In the film, three members of a fundamentalist Christian family die in a car wreck and meet Jesus, who removes their original sin and sense of shame and sends them back to their bodies to live again free of inhibition. Cinematical had the opportunity to sit down with the cast of the film for an interview. Cast members interviewed were:
Teresa Willis – Betty Franklin
Robinson Dean – Frank Franklin
Vince Pavia – Brian Franklin
Aviva – Caroline Franklin
Mari Blackwell – Peggy
Andy Forrest – Preacher
We all sat down for a roundtable discussion to talk about the film, their parts in it, and the message the film has about shame, inhibition and religion.
