syrupy sweet but fab
13 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie on TV and it inspired me to remember human flaws and strength. Despite the fact that this movie is undeniably as sweet as a Starbucks Chantico I felt that the acting was strong enough to pull this movie through. It had a strong foundation in the morality story genre but still allowed human flaws to play an important role. It's a fantastic movie for children in grade 7 and up. Any earlier than that and they may not understand the biblical references and certain scenes may not be appropriate. Fabulous movie for an easy watch or to teach children a few good morals. Personally it came at a time where I could appreciate the text as well as the acting. Congratulations on a great movie! Now if only I could find it again!
