    Estevez, who directed the film and also stars in it, said it isn't your typical Hollywood movie.

    "It’s sort of an anti-Hollywood film.  It celebrates faith and family and community and our humanity and not the sort of movies Hollywood is interested in making these days," he said.

    Sheen said it's the best movie he's done in 30 years.

    The Heartland Film Festival runs through Oct. 22.
