Inspiring, meaningful and engaging film.
15 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was a beautiful and inspiring exploration of the Hero's Journey mythology, first explained by Joseph Campbell.

I felt that this film really pulled together elements of storytelling the Hero's Journey cycle that made it appealing and engaging for both myself, and my two children (8 and 12). There is a broad appeal across gender and age. The interviewees in the film come from a broad range of background and life experience, and I think nearly anyone could identify and really feel themselves being spoken to through the words of the different people who share their stories.

I think that this is something that explains Joseph Campbell's work in a modern, personal way, I am so glad to have seen it, and feel so excited to share this film with more people in my life.
