God's Army 2: States of Grace
Two men of faith face different trials as they try to serve God while dealing with the realities of urban life in this drama. Elder Lozano (Ignacio Serricchio) and Elder Farrell (Lucas Fleischer) are a pair of Mormon missionaries trying to spread the word about the Church of Latter Day Saints along the rougher side of Santa Monica, CA. Lozano and Farrell don't have much in common on the surface -- Lozano is a Latino and a former gang member who has less than a week left in his mission, while Farrell is a na´ve young man from Utah who is still fired up about doing the Lord's work.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This upright and thoughtful film boasts a level of quality and noble purpose that Hollywood has all but abandoned."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"Dutcher believes that forgiveness is one of the highest manifestations of divine love. That kind of message goes a long way toward pardoning many a cinematic sin."
‑ Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News
"A landmark film.."Crash" for Mormons."
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
"By far, the best of it's kind; and still rivaling the quality of any film in any genre."
‑ Audrey Rock-Richardson, Tooele Transcript-Bulletin (Utah)
"Might feel like a Hollywood movie but it's clearly not. Dutcher, who also wrote the screenplay, does his share of sermonizing and clobbers the audience over the head with a spiritual ending."
‑ Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
"'Mormonz N the Hood' would have been a fitting title."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
"Director-writer-editor Richard Dutcher breaks all the rules of the Mormon Cinema genre he singlehandedly launched five years ago."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"To say that States of Grace takes some unexpected turns is to understate. But it also provides a lot of food for thought."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"An uncompromising, disconsolate pic about crises of faith."
‑ Scott Foundas, Variety
"... the movie's compassionate message gives it a measure of grace ... but good intentions don't always make for a good movie."
‑ Carol Cling, Las Vegas Review-Journal
"An epic of spiritual drama in which every character is well-drawn and well-played."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
