Heartfelt and Touching
22 November 2006 | by DirtInTheSkirt43See all my reviews

Karla Faye Tucker is proof that God can move in mysterious ways, and that He is a loving and forgiving God. When I first saw this on TBN I was tired, and about to head to bed, but something told me to watch it so I did. Through out the film I couldn't look away from the TV, and by the time the credits rolled I was in tears. Her story can soften even the hardest of hearts! The cast was spectacular, it wasn't your "corny Christian"(I'm a Christian and I admit there are some out there that are corny) movie, very professional, and very well acted. You see her life while in prison, how she has changed since giving her life to Jesus. But unlike some movies they don't hide away from the facts, the flashbacks back to 1983 were done quite well. Karen Jezek did an excellent job in portraying Karla, from the looks, to body language, everything was fantastic. She really showed that it wasn't just a character she was portraying, it was a real life woman who had a hard life since childhood. The story shows to non-Christian's that God is real, and He loves everyone no matter what they've done in their lives. It also shows Christians that if God can forgive someone like Karla, how much more should we forgive and accept others who differ from us? Also if we step out of our "comfort zone" look at who we could reach with the message of God's love. Had it not been for people who loved God and wanted to help people like Karla on death row, she might not have found God, and her story wouldn't be as big as it is. All in all, this movie is a must see for everyone!

RIP Karla, you are missed by many!
