Great questions!

Joel and Ethan Cohen tell wonderful conversion stories: Raising Arizona in particular; a case can also be made for Fargo, I think; and O Brother Where Art Thou

The Apostle (Robert Duvall)

The Jerk (Steve Martin)

I think that key is that the story cannot be tool of manipulation intended to convert viewers. It just has to be a story -- a kind of true testimony.
