About the Movie
It's the song that brings ultimate hope to so many…often in the midst of life's most challenging moments. Amazingly, the song was written by MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard. In reality, those lyrics took a lifetime to craft. Although he found faith at a young age, life wasn't easy for Bart. He leaned into an active imagination and his love of music as escapes from a troubled home life. As he grew older, Bart turned to football in hopes of somehow connecting with his abusive father. But a career-ending injury-combined with the vision of a teacher who saw unlimited potential-set Bart on a musical pathway. Chasing a dream while running from broken relationships with his father and Shannon, his childhood sweetheart, Bart hits the road in an old, decrepit tour bus with his new band MercyMe-named for his grandmother's favorite expression. With the guidance of a grizzled music-industry insider, the band begins a journey none of them could ever have imagined. A gripping reminder of the power of forgiveness, I Can Only Imagine, beautifully illustrates that no one is ever too far from God's love-or from an eternal home in Heaven.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The movie works for the same reason the song does: It lightens the burden of the pain people are shouldering today, and gives them something to look forward to.
Rotten: Like so many faith-based efforts, I Can Only Imagine suffers from a terminal case of self-importance.
Amazing and there’s no need to imagine...
I have felt His presence listening to the song and I felt it even more during the show. It’s better than good.
Wow so much better than I thought!!!
Thank you for your story and gifts!
God bless -
Amy Grant! Wow!!!! That’s what Christianity is all about!
I saw this movie at the theatre today and it was really good! It really shows how God can change things so much even though you think even He isn’t capable of it. I recommend you should be at least 10 years old to see this movie because the father of Bart is both verbally and physically abusive to his son.
Spoiler: Watch out for the moment when Bart gets a plate smashed on his head. It startles you.
Anyway, this movie is great!
