Storyline

A wide-eyed sister missionary arrives in Austria to begin her 18-month-long mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Despite having to make a few cultural adjustments, Sister Taylor meets every challenge with optimism. Her enthusiasm to share the Gospel makes her indomitable, until she finds herself with an abrasive companion whom she doesn't understand and doesn't particularly like. This challenge, along with the ordinary vicissitudes of missionary life begin to wear on her, and thus in the process of sharing the Gospel, Sister Taylor finds herself gaining a better understanding of its key precepts: faith, repentance, forgiveness, and charity.

I'm sorry.
23 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just spent the last 2 hours watching a movie, called "The Errand of Angels." I went, not expecting much, and it just kept on disappointing. I'd say 1/2 star, but it's so pitiful that I don't have the heart. As I watched, I kept hoping, "YES! now something will happen!"... and it wouldn't. It just left SO MUCH to be desired. I'm about to rip the movie apart, and I dunno, it was just so bad that I don't want to. I don't recommend this movie. at all. It doesn't have a plot, the characters are completely flat, the dialog consists of the baptismal interview questions and clichés, and it just generally leaves you hanging. The movie tries to cram the 18 months of a girl's mission into a feature film. ugh.
