Trivia

While filming this movie, Summer Naomi Smart, playing Kerra Mcconnell, was also in the theatre production of "Beauty and the Beast" at Tucon, playing Belle. Summer would have to leave the set of Passage to Zarahemla every night for almost two months at six o' clock to be in the play. There was one night where she let her understudy play, so she could shoot night scenes for the movie. For almost two months, Summer only got three or four hours of sleep a night. See more »

This movie is surprisingly good!
13 November 2007 | by druff-7See all my reviews

This is not your usual LDS fare. The movie might be a little intense for the youngest of viewers. I saw a few young kids turn away and snuggle close to their parents during some of the more intense parts. But they were laughing at other parts and were genuinely entertained.

If you're a Chris Heimerdinger fan, this movie is even more rewarding. It has great special effects, and a fun story. After getting burned out on recent LDS films, it was refreshing to sit down and feel like this was a 'real movie' for a change.

I followed a couple out of the movie theater and overheard the husband say to his wife, "This is the first LDS film that I have liked".

Good job raising the bar Chris.
