When the new film “Only God Can” opens nationwide March 3, its co-writer, Newport’s Colette Harrington Schwoeri, will not be able to make the premiere.
That is because she will be atDana Farbergetting a life-sustaining treatment. The hospital visit is a reminder of joy tinged with sorrow; during the same week she signed the contract to give her film idea to producers, she was diagnosed with an incurable form of blood cancer.
When the women in the movie “Only God Can” talk with each other, they say things like “Let me tell you, one Charleston Heart to another,” then go on to say whatever they wanted to share.
This is a faith-based movie about five women in their 40s who have been friends since their days at the College of Charleston. They call themselves the “Holy City Heartbreakers” and the film begins with them all coming together for a reunion at a splendid beach house not far from Charleston.
