Film: Unsung Hero debuts in UK and Ireland




With advance sales of 2.3 million tickets in the USA, Unsung Hero will debut in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on June 14th 2024. Produced by Kingdom Story Company. Co-Director Joel Smallbone said: “We are thrilled to bring Unsung Hero to audiences in the UK and Ireland. This project is a testament to the power of storytelling and the impact it can have on people’s lives. We hope that audiences will be inspired by the characters’ journeys.”

Set against the backdrop of Nashville in the early 1990s, Unsung Hero follows the journey of David Smallbone (pictured above) as he moves his family from Australia to the United States, searching for a brighter future. With their six children and nothing more than suitcases, and their love of music, David (For King & Country’s Joel Smallbone) and his pregnant wife Helen (Daisy Betts) set out to rebuild their lives. David and Helen begin to realise the musical prowess in their children, who would go on to become two of the most successful acts in inspirational music history: five-time Grammy Award®-winning artists For King & Country and Rebecca St. James.

The cast includes Joel Smallbone and Daisy Betts, alongside Jonathan Jackson, Candace Cameron Bure, Kirrilee Berge and Lucas Black. Some US Film Critics say that Unsung Hero delivers captivating performances which will resonate with audiences and invite viewers to reflect on the true meaning of hope and sacrifice. On this side of the pond we’ve got Sorted Magazine’s resident film buff, Andy Godfrey, on the case, so please do stand by for the benefit of his expert insights.
