A realistic and sentimental story that few will forget if seen....
24 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a mental health professional, and faculty member of the Osher Lifelong Institute at Towson University, Baltimore, Md., who presents twice a year, film series focusing on the psychological aspect of the film stories, I am strongly recommending the film, "God's New Plan" ("No Higher Love") to all those able to cope with the life and death of our Life. Telling this story through the eyes of Ellen, the Mother of Emmy, reveals an author who was able to incorporate the sensitivities of the tragic aspect of an early demise of a parent who could and did face honestly and forthrightly the future of her and her family's lives. I am carefully couching my review so anyone reading this will be curious enough to view this film and grow accordingly in wisdom and in insight. The mental health provider was particularly sensitive with the material she was given to perform. I found her to be an excellent representative of my profession. The other characters without exception, gave stellar and peerless performances as well. In conclusion, this film will become one of my selected films for a future film series that I will present. Seriously consider this film to view and ponder the profound implications for each of US!
