Fayette actor featured in upcoming faith-based movie


Fayette County resident and actor Dennis Loewer will be featured in a faith-based film, “The Order of Rights,” set to stream on Amazon Prime beginning Oct. 2.

The “Order of Rights” is a faith-based film. The story centers around Emma Stein, a pregnant single girl who has been advised by her mother to have an abortion. Despite the objection of the child’s father, Ethan Carpenter, and his promise to help her, she decides to go ahead with the procedure, Loewer explained.

When Ethan and his family file a lawsuit on behalf of the child’s right to life, the drama escalates as Emma’s mother contacts a friend with the Associated Press. Before long, the case is mired in a media frenzy. The court has to decide whether the child in Emma’s womb is a person or not, and if so, if it is endowed with the unalienable rights as enumerated in the Declaration of Independence, Loewer said.

Loewer said the title “Order of Rights” refers to the order in which the categories of rights are deliberately listed in the document: Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness.

Loewer said the film stars Ben Davies (“Courageous, I’m Not Ashamed”), Shannen Fields (“Facing the Giants”), Emma Elle Roberts (“I’m Not Ashamed”), Richard Cutting (“National Treasure: Book of Secrets”) and Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Loewer noted that the film was originally scheduled to premiere in theaters on Sept. 17. However, like many feature films, the film has been pushed back into a digital streaming format and distribution because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This film is scheduled to stream on Amazon Prime beginning Oct. 2.

It was in 2015, at a film festival in Atlanta where his own written short film which he produced was a nominee, that Loewer met a production group working on “The Order of Rights” project. The group considered him for a number of different roles in the film, eventually settling on the role of Dr. Reynolds, said Loewer.

Prior to this project, Loewer has been cast in various roles such as a judge, coroner, sheriff, dentist and a Texas gambler.

Loewer, among his other activities, works with the nonprofit Eden Project, an organization supporting veterans.

Loewer is a veteran who served in the Persian Gulf War, and is a member of Harp’s Crossing Baptist Church.
