I Can Only Imagine tells the touching true story behind the best-selling Christian song of all time. Before he was writing hit singles as the front man for the award-winning Christian band MercyMe, Bart Millard (J. Michael Finley) was a young man with a turbulent relationship with his abusive father (Dennis Quaid). Years of pain and secrets drove them apart, until his father’s cancer diagnosis inspires change in both their lives. Can they finally reconcile and forge the kind of bond that had always eluded them? “I Can Only Imagine” brought hope to millions of listeners, but it was inspired by a very personal tale of forgiveness and faith.

Thanks for sharing the purpose in your pain. Bravo.
Like so many faith-based efforts, I Can Only Imagine suffers from a terminal case of self-importance.
The movie has too much on its plate in selling its paint-by-numbers uplift.
It’s a drab, emotionally flat film.
