Storyline

Disillusioned and temporarily rudderless, John Woodson is about to experience a dramatic and profound metamorphosis. Through a mysterious set of coincidences, he finds himself on an adventure to Peru in search of ancient scrolls, known as the Celestine Prophecy. The prophecy and its nine key insights, predict a new awakening that redefines human life and provides a glimpse into a completely spiritual culture on earth. Resistant at first, skeptical and unsure, John finds that each step he takes, each person he encounters leads him to a new awakening. It is only in this letting go that he finds his destiny and comes to understand the meaning that had escaped him when his adventure began. Written by James Redfield

Trivia

About 41 minutes into the movie, there is a brief external shot of what appears to be a Spanish temple or a church set in the jungle. This building is actually the exterior of Ponce de Leon Hall, Flagler College, in St. Augustine, FL, which has been blue-screened into a jungle setting. The following interior shots, of a beautiful rotunda, where Hector Elizondo and the General are talking, is the actual interior of Ponce Hall, Flagler College. There was very little set design done - the stained glass windows, paintings on the walls, the rotunda ceiling - are all actually part of the building's original decor at the time of its construction, and can be seen by any visitor to the campus.

Goofs

A bareheaded kid flubbed a shot on the court; immediately after, when John compared him to Michael Jordan, he was wearing a reversed baseball cap. See more »

Not bad if you have read the book... but if you haven't forget it!
16 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

It was about 10 years ago when I came across the book and not by chance, it literally fell into lap. It was one of the best books I had ever read. That said I waited years for the movie with high expectations. I ordered the DVD as soon as it was available and eagerly watched it with friends. Unfortunately the movie failed on several aspects! As the movie progressed I found myself pausing the movie frequently to explain to those who had not read the book what was going on. The movie seemed to skim quickly over some of the insights without proper explanation which caused me to loose track as to which insight was being discussed in the movie. On a whole I felt the characters were well portrayed and acted, but was let down by a crammed script. I believe this should have been made into a mini series for TV allowing it to take full advantage of the character development and proper explanation of the insights.

Not bad if you have read the book... but if you haven't forget it!
