Beautifully Filmed Nice Pilot For TV Series
10 December 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This was a nice surprise: a modern-day movie with God actually spoken about in nice terms. It's a simple story of a young woman who goes to be a mission teacher in the back woods of Tennesee, and some of the problems she faces.

A high point of this film is the photography and the magnificent Tennesee fall scenery - some of the prettiest I've ever seen on film. A filter on one of the camera lenses, making the sky purple was a nice touch, too. Without scene after scene of that beauty, I would have enjoyed this as much.

Kellie Martin is the cute young woman who plays "Christy Huddleson." Something is out of whack, however, with her character. She travels to Tennesee to become that mission teacher yet she knows nothing about Christianity! Hello??! That's the movies for you, although it is based on a novel by Catherine Marshall and I wouldn't question her Christian credentials.

At any rate, Tyne Daly, playing a mature Christian ("Alice Henderson") who lives there, helps teach her. "Christie" also winds up a solid young minister as a boyfriend ("Rev. David Grantland, played by Randall Batnikoff.)

The movie was a pilot for a short-lived television series. Despite its flaws, overall it is a nice film and surprisingly interesting for what could have been a bland story. It has a nice ending, too, although not particularly where everything was perfect.
