Im With Phil


When a New Yorker named Phil Campbell discovers a rural town in Alabama that shares his name, he invites Phil Campbells from all over the world to join him there. When a deadly disaster strikes the town, Phil’s stunt takes on an entirely different tone.

Dove Review

This is a moving film which touches the heart. Phil Campbell is a town in Alabama which draws Phil Campbells from all over the United States and also from the U.K. They hold their own “Phil Campbell” convention. When a devastating tornado lays flat much of the town, the Phil Campbells of the world, led by Phil Campbell of Brooklyn, New York, pull together to help bring relief-and hope-to the town.

The loss of loved ones, the destruction of Mountain View Baptist Church, and the tears are all very real but hope is kindled by the town pulling together. Andrew Reed has put together an awesome documentary which features the history of Phil Campbell as the viewer learns the town was named after an Englishman who built a depot in the community. Although not intended for young children, this DVD is a wholesome look at a town that pulls together to help heal the pain of the people. We are happy to award “I’m with Phil” our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages. This is a powerful and dramatic film.
