God opens a door and Dwight Hawkins' (Deitrick Haddon) eyes are opened. He wants something different in life; no more shackin' up, no more premarital sex. He wants to be a better man and he wants to use the gift God gave him. Dwight Hawkins is anointed to sing. Bishop Wright recognizes his gift and makes him Minister of Music of the church. Things are going along as well as can be expected, but then Dwight suffers a loss. He begins to struggle with his faith and makes bad choices. This gives the Bishop, who is jealous of Dwight's standing in the church by this time, just the ammunition he needs to get rid of him. Dwight works hard to get back on track for the Lord, but the word of his bad actions had spread, making his efforts seem worthless. But there is someone who still believes in him, so he isn't down for long.

I have two of Deitrick Haddon's' albums (Lost and Found/Crossroads) and I really enjoy listening to his modern gospel music. This is the reason why I purchased this DVD, but I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I'm sorry to say that some of the acting was over the top (not all, just some), but I'm glad to say that I am not referring to Deitrick's acting skills. He is a natural!! His performance and all of the music were what I liked about this movie; I was glad to see there were two music videos in the special features I could enjoy.

What didn't I like? The movie jumps around and some scenes seem incomplete or unexplained. And, I guess it was supposed to be for effect, but sometimes the camera would come in and out of focus and that happened too much, as well as too many close ups in certain parts. Blessed & Cursed is described as a modern twist on the biblical tale of David and Saul, but the plot wasn't clear. When the movie ended I was feeling dissatisfied, like I missed something.

Wow.. We viewed this movie on our movie night, as we have movie night, game night, devotion night etc..

This movie shows how humans can lose sight, and think that they are the ones running things. So many people do think that they have the control. This movie shows that in so many ways. This movie also shows what happens when you are not in your right position.

We liked the christian values that were in this movie, as faith based movies are finally getting the attention they deserve. We viewed this movie with our family and it was clean fun.

I read one review that talks about the club scene, how ever when we viewed the movie we did not see anything that was inappropriate. For us we are glad that the scene was shown because many christian do back slide, it only showed the truth.. You have church members that are up in the club and in the pews on Sunday morning. And if the truth hurts, then maybe it should, so that people can begin to be healed and delivered after seeing this movie.

Why should you continue to hide behind the mask of being the perfect church going person, christian, believer, etc.. Be truthful if you need help then get help from wise counsel, Godly counsel. Don't condemn this movie for showing reality. There is noting wrong with showing a person who really wants to live what they sing and preach about.. Lets get real and take off the fake skin, mask and fake church personality. Lets live right Monday through Sunday 24 hours a day and 365 days every year. Lets not judge others, lets use this movie as a tool to win souls and deliver souls.

This movie just shows what goes on behind the scenes in ministry and how much of a challenge ministry is.

Saw this powerful movie with my church family last week and purchased 4 copies for family and friends. The message is wonderful and humbling. All of the major players (Deitrick Haddon, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Karen Clark Sheard, etc.) are absolutely phenomenal; plus new comers, Ariana and Ryan Pierce, are sensational.

Blessed and Cursed is a "church movie". It is based on church ideas...namely baptist or methodist in origin. The aspect that I like is that they go just a little further to make this more than a "cookie cutter" film. No cursing or sex acts are in this film. But they hint on the fact that sexuality is a part of human life. Many spiritual films focus elsewhere. I applaud the filmmakers for taking the chance.

Music in this film is really good. I'd buy the soundtrack. Cinematography is good as well. The story is pretty similar to other movies that show power struggles in them.

I think that church members that don't like bad language and sex in movies will enjoy this film.

This one was good, but I enjoyed A Beautiful much more. But, this one also has an inspiring story.

I like D. Haddon's acting skills...I think he's a natural. However, I didnt see the modern day telling of David and Saul as clearly as I'd hoped. I actually thought it was a autobiography-type movie all the way through lol...the music was good and the outfits were interesting lol. Why did Karen Clarke or Mali Music not sing at all in this movie?!? That was more than disappointing for me :-/ otherwise, it was a decent movie to watch...but misleading with the modern day david storyline - they didnt go deep enough for that to happen!
