Unforgettable true tragedy, and it happened again in 2012
At UCLA film school I was taught that there are two kinds of movies: good ones and bad ones. This is a good one. It is good because it does compel the viewer to watch it all the way through, and because once you have seen it, though you may forget the title years later, you will never forget the story, nor the actors who portrayed these parents. The facts surrounding their decision are shocking. If you have any empathy at all, you cannot stop thinking about what happened to this boy's siblings and parents as a result of being influenced by wolves in sheep's clothing. It is very sad, and indeed, as I looked for this title again today to tell someone about this movie, which I saw many years ago, I was shocked to see news in May 2012 of another case in Oklahoma of a diabetic child deprived of insulin because the mother believed God would heal him. Shaking my head.
This is an important film, a must-see in religious studies classrooms everywhere.
