THE GRACE CARD ½

(Encore on Comcast) A low-budget Christian indie that just clears the runway on the sincerity of its performances and inclusiveness of its message. Two cops —an upbeat part-time pastor (Michael Higgenbottom) and a racist jerk (Michael Joiner) — learn about forgiveness. Director David G. Evans leans on meat-and-potatoes melodrama rather than overt evangelizing. With Louis Gossett Jr. (PG-13; runs through Nov. 15)

(R; runs through Nov. 15)
