A heartfelt movie for anyone to enjoy
13 October 2012 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I really, really enjoyed this movie. I do not see how, in retrospect, someone can dislike this movie, as it has so many wonderful aspects that make it shine. The acting was amazing, each actor fitting with the character they portrayed like fingers to the metaphorical glove. The cinematography, as I have come to expect from T. C. Christansen, was phenomenal and complemented the brilliant music that suited each subsequent scene in the movie. I, similar to other men out there, thought I was immune to crying in movies others would find sad, but I found myself silently tearing as I witnessed the tragic events that played out before me. To all those who feel like hating on this movie solely because of their personal prejudices against the church which it represents, I implore them to just watch this movie, and to not let their feelings get in the way of a wonderful experience.
