    When Hollywood produces a film about Italian-Americans, it usually is of a certain vintage, and the purveyors of such art are usually their descendants. In a change of pace, enter the talented duo of director Alejandro Monteverde and screenwriter Rod Barr, who collaborated last year on the highly acclaimed Sound of Freedom, one of the most successful independent films ever. That’s a feat difficult to match, let alone top, but their film Cabrini is poised to do just that, opening in over 3,000 theaters nationwide next week. When Barr was pitched by the film’s producers to write the screenplay of...

    Tim Ballard’s exit from Operation Underground Railroad earlier this year followed an investigation into claims of sexual misconduct involving seven women, according to sources with direct knowledge of the organization. Sources familiar with the situation said that the self-styled anti-slavery activist, who appears to be preparing for a Senate run, invited women to act as his “wife” on undercover overseas missions ostensibly aimed at rescuing victims of sex trafficking. He would then allegedly coerce those women into sharing a bed or showering together, claiming that it was necessary to fool traffickers. Ballard, who was played by Jim Caviezel in the...

    Tim Ballard, the former Homeland Security agent whose experience rescuing child sex trafficking victims inspired the film "Sound of Freedom," accused the U.S. government of helping to facilitate cartel-led child trafficking rings in the United States by releasing young migrants who crossed the southern border into their care. "It is shameful that I have to say this, but I spent 12 years working for the U.S. government to rescue children. Now, thanks to these policies, I have to rescue children from the U.S. Government," Ballard said Tuesday on "The Story." "This is dangerous," he warned. "This is a crisis." Moments...

    Critics, like filmmakers, know all about negative feedback.For every director who hears, “you stink!” there’s a critic who gets similarly attacked. It comes with the territory.This critic spent days reading the negative Twitter reactions to his “Barbie” film review, much of it written before the film opened. How did they know the review was “wrong” when they hadn’t seen the movie in question?It didn’t matter. “Barbie” was a cultural event with or without the actual film. The marketing team made sure of that. And then it became something else.A culture war totem, like a COVID-19 mask or Ukraine flag pin.And,...

    The liberal media won’t be happy with NFL quarterback “Tua” Tagovailoa of the Miami Dolphins who took a bold stance against sex trafficking in support of the popular film “Sound of Freedom.” The film is a true-life story about child sex trafficking and modern-day child slavery. With a smaller film budget of $14.5 million, the film has earned at least $174 million in the US alone at the time of this report. Left-leaning outlets like the Washington Post, Rolling Stone, and CNN have criticized “Sound of Freedom” and its star actor Jim Caviezel for allegedly having ties to QAnon conspiracy...

    (Photo by Alexandra Gorn on Unsplash) It’s shocking, though in no way overstated, to conclude that Americans today are living through a time of total spiritual warfare, when virtually all of the most contentious and consequential issues are neither political, ideological nor psychological. They are flat-out spiritual – good versus evil. There’s the early sexualization of innocent children in the nation’s public schools. And the mass-hysteria transgender craze that seduces mentally fragile teenagers into undergoing mutilating and irreversible surgeries. And the love affair with killing human babies in their mother’s womb. And the massive foreign invasion of America, purposefully engineered...

    As someone who has dealt with the back end of trafficking, namely the people who make it to the United States and are able to somehow find a lawyer to help them seek asylum and protection, I can confirm that many of the scenes depicted in “Sound of Freedom” echo what people have told me in the past about how they made their way to the U.S. So many of these people, both old clients and acquaintances, have talked about the subterfuge used to lure people into the sex trades, the random violence and brutality of the human traffickers, and...
