Film – Gwen Shamblin: Starving for Salvation
Produced by Lifetime (HBO)
Jennifer Grey and Vincent Walsh star in the new Lifetime “Ripped from the Headlines” original movie, Gwen Shamblin: Starving for Salvation. Based on a true story, the movie centers on the controversial religious leader and faith-based diet creator who positioned herself as God’s prophet and preached the virtues of being thin. Shamblin’s story came to a tragic end in May 2021, when the plane that her husband Joe Lara (played by Walsh) was flying crashed shortly after takeoff, killing Gwen, Joe, their son-in-law, and four other Church leaders.
