Did You Know?

Errors in geography: The radio announcer refers to the local area as West Texas. However, he also references a listener in Deaf Smith County, which is located in the Panhandle. No one in Texas refers to the Panhandle as West Texas. They are two completely separate regions.See more »

Beautiful Movie, 7 January 2005
Author: pennyv258 from United States

William R. Moses really out-did himself this time. He brings life and depth to all his parts. He's a truly believable artist. Great Smile and wonderful personality. I was pleased that he chose to do a Max Lucado story, One of my favorite stars in a movie by one of my favorite authors. What a great pair. I hope they do more stories together in the future. William brings quality to any movie or show he plays in. He has a great attitude and gives powerful performances. He is so versatile in his acting. I have seen him play heroes and villains, all done with great talent and charm. I adore William R. Moses and hope one day I would be so fortunate to meet him.
