This movie is very deep...you have to really pay attention in order to get the seriousness of the underlying message. If you pay attention and apply the lessons to your own life you may be able to identify people like the character that Danny Glover portrayed. It has a very deeply religious appreciation for the fact that love covers a multitude of sin. The mother's love brought her family back together and her husband back to life. The garden died and the man of the house fell ill after Danny Glover's character arrived uninvited, unannounced and undermining everything that the family's values were based upon. The mother was a God fearing woman, but she turned to old wives tales remedies rather than standing firmly on her faith in God. Until she remembered that God was the only one that could help her she suffered from lack of faith not knowledge. The man of the house was the spiritual gate keeper for the family, but he allowed his guard down due to misplaced loyalty to an old friend...or at least what he thought was an old friend. He nearly lost his life and his family behind the thoughtless decision to allow a stranger to stay in his home. Danny Glover's character explained to the woman of the house that just as she has a purpose in life he did as well, regardless to the fact that their purposes were in direct opposition to one another. A lesson in life to choose your friends carefully and always know who and what you are dealing with. Pay close attention to the movie and even closer attention to your acquaintances and your surroundings.
