Virtuous is based on the concept of a virtuous woman in Proverbs 31. This film shows not only the plights of several women but also their faith and perseverance. Simone Burner (Brandy Allison who is a Christian singer) is accused of murdering Patrick Walters (Ben Davies) who was a local millionaire's grandson and a playboy. She seeks help from a kind attorney Jack Evans (Erik Estrada) to prove that she acted out of self-defense. Simone has a troubled past. But she learns that her past does not define her. She and many women in the movie learn that once they give their lives to Christ, they become daughters of the King of kings. Besides Simone (the main character), you will meet a young woman who's captured as a prisoner of war in Afghanistan, an ambitious TV news reporter (Vanessa Ore), a judge (Bonnie Johnson) who has an abusive husband, a lonely nurse (Kelly Bowling), a cop (Angelita Nelson) whose husband cheated on her, a hard-working single mom (Melissa Barron), and a few other women at Potter's House (a drug recovery center).
Virtuous is an inspiring faith-based film about hope, strength, grace, and forgiveness. The movie aims to empower women to live out the principles of Proverbs 31, which include faith, wisdom, compassion, and integrity, even in the midst of adversity and trials. It's a beautiful story demonstrating the transforming power of God's unconditional love. When we give God all the broken pieces of our lives, He makes magnificent mosaics that reflect the light and beauty of His goodness, faithfulness, grace, and mercy. The DVD also includes a behind the scenes look with the cast and crew.
