From start to finish I was enthralled by this film as I think the audience about me was also. Few left as the closing titles appeared - most stayed to savor the beautiful music of Merrill Jensen and allow their inner feelings to be pondered in their hearts for a few moments longer. I have been somewhat interested and acquainted with Emma's story most all my life, my surname sharing her maiden name and my great, great, and great, great, great grandparents being personally friends with her and her husband, Joseph. I brought to this film a lifetime of inquiring into the subject and came away richly rewarded with new insights into the lives of two who have contributed so much to human kind which extends beyond just their day but everlastingly to humanity. Bravo to the script, the directing, the "living" acting, the music and all the support elements that blend so well together in this film. And a special thanks to all the volunteer help that brought about this project. Bring to this film an open, inquiring mind, not looking for criticism and the harvest you'll reap will be great and pleasing to your soul.
