Trivia

Olivia says to Benjamin at one point, "Shall we accept good from God and not trouble?" This is a reference to Job chapter 2. God gives all of Job's status and health in the devil's possession. His wife tells him, "Curse God and die!" Job replies, "You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept only good from God and never trouble?" See more »

People need to grow up, stop the hatred, and let people believe what they want to believe,
12 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a beautiful, well-done movie and it's very very clear that the only reason it has a low rating is because a bunch of atheists/ anti-Christian extremists/ just plain a-holes decided to give it 1 star without even seeing the movie. Trust me, that's the only reason... and they are only making themselves look pathetic because there is only three pages of reviews, all but one of which are extremely good (in the 7-10 range), yet there is a 4 point something average. What does that tell us? That obviously all of the low ratings don't even have written reviews, they are simply votes. Therefore, no one has any logical support to back up there reason for a 1 star rating, probably because they haven't even SEEN the movie they just decide "hey, what I believe is right and I don't believe there is a God so I'm just going to lowly rate this in some attempt to demean or put down all who do believe in him." People are so stupid and you just can't trust what you see nowadays.

I'm not even a Christian and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.

People need to stop being so narrow-minded and cold hearted and just let people believe what they want to believe. You can't prove to someone they're wrong. Most Christians don't try to prove anything to non-Christians, we let it go that a lot of the world doesn't believe in God. That's totally fine. So why can't you just let it go that a lot of other people in the world do believe in God? That's totally fine, too. You all need to open up your minds and stop being so utterly immature. Damn.
