Eureka Springs, Arkansas is an unlikely haven for both god-fearing Christians and karaoke-loving drag queens. Narrated with observational wit by Mx Justin Vivian Bond, this vibrant, uplifting documentary cuts back and forth between preparations for the town’s epic Passion Play, which reenacts the crucifixion each summer, and lively nights at the local gay bar dubbed “a hillbilly Studio 54.” With verve, humor, and unfailing compassion, Donal Mosher and Michael Palmieri’s film builds unexpected bridges between religious faith and sexual orientation. A Kino Lorber release
