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 »

Awesome Movie!!!!!
6 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw the movie tonight in Jeff Johnson's hometown. I thought it was a wonderful movie!! Be sure to bring a box of tissues though! I am sad that some reviewers are embarrassed by the Christian content. I can never understand why people are not offended or embarrassed by graphic violence, derogatory humor, sexual content in movies, but mention God or prayer and people feel they need to apologize...why??? It was part of this story...Letters to God...that was the whole point. I think the movie was well done and deserves to be applauded! Hurray Jeff and all the hard work everyone put in it, the movie moved my heart and soul, Thanks!!!!! Lisa Salonich
