Storyline

"Conversations with God" tells the true story of Neale Donald Walsch that inspired and changed the lives of millions worldwide. The journey begins after he unexpectedly breaks his neck in a car accident and loses his job. Soon after, we witness his transformation from your everyday guy to a homeless bum struggling just to stay alive. Neale's eye-opening roller coaster ride takes us through his emotional battle to get enough food, make friends and regain his life. And just when things seem to be going his way, they get worse. Feeling like a complete failure in all aspects of his life, Neale, full of anger and bitterness asks God a pile of demanding questions. Much to his disbelief, Neale received his answers! The unworldly conversations that follow end up being read by over 7 million people in 36 languages around the world and counting. Written by Brian Chandler <feedback@spotlightearth.com>

Trivia

The bus used to take Neale out of the park in the movie was a decommissioned local bus purchased at auction. This specific bus was in service 1991-2 and on the same route that Neale had to travel to get to work, and was thus almost certainly one of the very buses that Neale had taken during the real events depicted in the movie.

Quotes

Angry Audience Member: Sounds to me like you've written a book of lies.
Neale: If you're asking me did I make all this up... the answer is no. But, I will tell you this, I've wondered what you are wondering. Will anyone believe this? Believe me? Will they believe where it came from? I just hope that you make that decision from your own hearts, not from what you think of me personally. And please, don't disqualify or marginalize the message because... I am... such a fallible messenger.

Great - if you liked the book
23 April 2012 | by tgmarsdenSee all my reviews

This movie was good - thought provoking, touching and inspiring. I really liked it however i acknowledge that it will divide people - it's really for those who've read the book and respond to the authors message. If you relate to this and are interested in knowing more about Neale Donald Walsch's story, there's a good chance you'll be pleasantly surprised by this movie. I was. I thought it was well put together, gave due attention to the different parts of the authors story, didn't play him out to be some savior or evangelist and wasn't sugar coated. I don't agree with the infomercial comments, and I'm Australian and we have little tolerance for infomercials and cheesy sales pitches. Obviously its not a big budget movie and its more about the story and the message for those that hear it.
