I really enjoyed this movie - enough to want to see it again and/or purchase the DVD if it comes out.
My husband had read the book beforehand, but I had not. I thought it was riveting. In trying to explain the ending to my husband, I was so "into" it that I just couldn't help but cry while trying to talk. I was there emotionally, in the movie.
To me, a good movie or book is one that grips you, holds your attention. This movie did just that. I don't know that heaven will be this way or not.
My Bible doesn't say that it will be, but we all have our opinions of what we think Heaven will be like. It was a beautiful story, and said, in a nutshell, that no life is worthless. We all touch and affect people every day, sometimes in ways that we will never know in this life.
I think it's definitely a movie worth seeing!
