Meaningful and profound, NOT
30 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was a lot of things;

well written well developed well informed well directed well performed

were five things it was not.

After reading the reviews it has come to my attention that this movie is thought to be "inspirational" and "real" by many of its viewers. As far as "inspirational" goes, its value lies more in "inspiring" bad writers/actors to keep on applying for production grants as this film is evident that someone will fund your work no matter how bad.

As for 'real' this film reeked of artifice, everything from the every day "day to day" problems that caused family rifts to the big existential dilemmas and crappy, angsty cynicism of Anna. If this film dealt with any of the 'real' issues then everybody should lay back, relax, as it seems we've nothing to worry about.

In regards to the films representation of 'disability' anyone hoping for a relevant and informed piece will be disappointed. I am amazed this film was produced in the 21st century. I've seen 1970 films that were more politically savvy then this.

Colin Bickley, a round of applause for having set a new high standard of 'crap' to Christian programming. I would have gotten more out of the porn videos the brother was watching.
