Former Rams Cheerleader on the Silver Screen

By Joe Williams

amyhollandpenellramsSome hometown heroes are screening an ambitious movie this Sunday afternoon at the new Granite City cinemas. The inspirational drama “I Am” stars Granite City native Amy Holland Pennell, a former captain of the Rams cheerleaders, and was co-produced by former Cardinal Todd Zeile.

I’m guessing it’s no coincidence that the screening is on 10/10/10. The faith-based drama follows ten characters through a day in Los Angeles as they grapple with the consequences of violating the Ten Commandments. The website for the film (www.iamthemovie.com) calls the interconnected storyline “a faith-based ‘Crash’.”

“I Am” screens Sunday afternoon at 12:15 and 2 p.m. at the new Granite City tri-plex at 1243 Niedringhaus Avenue. The 2 p.m. screening is already sold out; but at 3:45, fans can meet some of the stars, including Pennell, who hosted sports shows on local TV before launching an acting career in Hollywood.

“I Am” (which features Katharine McPhee’s new song “Say Goodbye” on the soundtrack) will be screening at churches throughout the Bi-State area later this year.
