Best movie for children of all ages
28 April 2005 | by (New Haven, Connecticut) – See all my reviews

Best movie I have ever seen. Ever. The book is even better, but only slightly. The movie is true to form, and like the book, does not mince words (or graphic images) of poverty, despair, aristocracy, etc. I was shown this in Catecism class in 1983, and it has always stayed with me. I recently found it through my local library, and introduced it to my daughter. We then read the book together. Needless to say, I cried and cried. The main messages are that charity and compassion are good things, and that sacrifice is not always a bad thing. Also, the picture of heaven and God's rewarding them with verbal praise will underscore your faith. I felt like it reassured my entire belief system. If you like this, you should also try "What Dreams May Come" and "The Five Things You Learn in Heaven".
