great spiritual movie
9 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

this is one of those movies that stir your soul, Julia is so committed to her ideals, it is so refreshing to see someone who is standing up for what she believes in. she is so mature in her spirituality and understanding of humans and nature, it is mesmerizing to watch her define what she believes. bravo for Doug to portray her in such a honest light. we need more movies like this. i hope this movie has some legs as they say in the industry. i would love for it to be wide released into DVD format. i am hoping that Doug is able to create more of his masterpieces on film, documentaries are an important method of expressing our society.
