Jonas Nightengale is a slick-as-oil flimflam man who'll trade salvation for a donation to his touring ministry. Jonas knows how to work a crowd and a con, but his words of wonder are done with mirrors and smoke. When his tour bus breaks down, Jonas pitches his tents in impoverished Rustwater, Kansas. While his alluring manager tries to persuade the local sheriff not to close the show, Jonas sets his sights on a beautiful skeptic named Marva. But making a believer out of Marva is going to take a real miracle.

Steve Martin, Debra Winger, Liam Neesan, Lucas Haas and Lolita Davidovich (who plays the sister of Lucas Haas's character) all interact wonderfully in this story and have made it one of my favorite movies. I feel it works on all levels.

The musical numbers are beautiful produced and the story is well thought out and entertaining.

No car chases; no shoot ém up scenes nor dangling from sky scrapers, but a lot of insightful observations as well as humor permeates Leap of Faith.
