Pastor Brown is a 2009 American film. It was written by Rhonda Baraka and directed by Rockmond Dunbar. The film was shot in Atlanta, Georgia. Pastor Brown stars Salli Richardson, Nicole Ari Parker, Michael Beach, Monica, and Keith David. This film was the debut of R&B singer Grammy-winner India.Arie as an actress.
When her father unexpectedly becomes terminally ill, Jessica ("Jesse"), an exotic dancer, returns home for the first time in over a decade. As her father's dying wish, he asks her to take over as head of Mount Olive Baptist Church. The news turns her and her family's life upside down. Jesse accepts her father's commission, thereby pitting herself against her sister and most of the leadership at Mount Olive who know her secret past.
Through accepting her father's request, Jesse embarks upon a course that changes her world forever. Not only does she reconnect with her family and her teenage son, but she also finds the dignity and self-love she lost so long ago.
