I Can Only Imagine is a 2018 American biographical Christian drama film directed by the Erwin Brothers and written by Alex Cramer, Jon Erwin, and Brent McCorkle, based on the story behind the MercyMe song of the same name, the most played Christian radio single ever. The film stars J. Michael Finley as Bart Millard, the lead singer who wrote the song about his relationship with his father (played by Dennis Quaid). Madeline Carroll, Priscilla Shirer, Cloris Leachman, and Trace Adkins also star.
I Can Only Imagine was released on March 16, 2018 in the United States and has grossed over $38 million worldwide. Some critics praised it as inspiring and noted it as an improvement compared to other faith-based films, while others called it flat and by-the-numbers.
