The faith-based family film "Yellow Day" held its own on opening weekend and will now open in 80 additional theaters nationwide on Jan. 8.

On this day, the young man witnesses astonishing miracles, each one teaching a lesson in faith, hope, or love. This man must learn from these miracles and confront his fears, if he is to complete his journey and be reunited with his lost love. more >>
