I saw this film at the Edinburgh Film Fest, and although not the greatest film in the world, I can safely say that every person who was at the screening was deeply moved. The film deals primarily with two families, one Caucasian and one Indian. The Caucasian family is dealing with a son who has cancer, as well as farm animal difficulties (that description simplifies matters). The Indian family is new in town and dealing with settling down. The girls in the families discover a light on the moors, and this opens the film to a discussion regarding faith. What the audience gains from watching the film can't really be described, it needs to be experienced. There was a silence after the screening as people let the film absorb. There were those who cried and those who just let it sink in. I think everyone can take something different from it. As I said, it's not the most utterly fantastic film in the world, however it will affect the majority of people who watch it.
