HAVE A LITTLE FAITH - ABC VIDEO: Hallmark Hall of Fame Movie Trailer - Sunday, November 27, 2011 at 9/8C

Henry Covington (Laurence Fishburne) was a Detroit preacher who overcame – along with his wife, Annette, played by Tony Award winner Anika Noni Rose ("Dreamgirls," "Caroline, Or Change") – a life mired in drugs and crime. Mitch Albom, portrayed in the movie by Bradley Whitford ("The West Wing," "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip"), met the reverend-in-recovery when he wrote newspaper columns about homeless people and homeless shelters. Covington's I Am My Brother's Keeper Church provided food and a place -- on the church floor -- where homeless people could sleep.

The other central character in Albom's book and movie is New Jersey Rabbi Albert Lewis, played by Academy Award winner Martin Landau ("Ed Wood," "Entourage"). "The Reb," as Albom calls him, asks Albom – who had briefly attended the rabbi's synagogue as a child -- to write his eulogy.

On the surface, these two larger-than-life characters, the charismatic African-American preacher and the feisty, funny rabbi, could hardly be more different. But they each in their own way profoundly affect the writer. It's a story about life's purpose – losing belief and finding it again – and about the divine spark inside all of us. One man's journey is really everyone's story.

Cast includes Laurence Fishburne, Bradley Whitford, Martin Landau, Anika Noni Rose, Mykelti Williamson, Melinda McGraw, Deanna Dunagan and Bryce Clyde Jenkins.
