A Documentary on Paul - "A Polite Bribe"

Today, I noticed a trailer being posted on other sites called, "A Polite Bribe".  Here is Bird's comment:
The documentary by Robert Olando, A Polite Bribe, about Paul’s collection for the Jerusalem church, featuring John Dominic Crossan, Richard Horsley, Douglas Campbell, N.T. Wright, Ben Witherington, and others.

Though, of course, I have not seen the movie, it is unfair to comment and is difficult to be as objective as I may otherwise, but when I hear in the trailer, "Now for the first time, the true story is told" and moments earlier hearing 100+ year old T├╝bingen school hypotheses, namely, "Luke's agenda was to show that all the early Christians were on the same page", one should be a bit doubtful.  Hopefully Ben and Tom, et. al., can hold the fort down and show that there is indeed scandal in the biblical narrative, though not from man, but from God!
