Trivia

Olivia says to Benjamin at one point, "Shall we accept good from God and not trouble?" This is a reference to Job chapter 2. God gives all of Job's status and health in the devil's possession. His wife tells him, "Curse God and die!" Job replies, "You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept only good from God and never trouble?" See more »

Incredibly touching.
6 September 2012 | by charwolfeSee all my reviews

I do not care that this is a Christian film, it makes no difference whatsoever to the brilliant cinematography and narrative.

This film is full of warmth, sadness and explores true emotion. It touches the heart in a way that anyone of any religion (or none at all) can enjoy thoroughly.

I am not religious, and I was sceptical at first, but I found that this film explores so much more than religion in ways that I never would have expected. The emphasis on devotion to family is something that should be cherished by all people and this film delivers the true meaning of love and loss, and the fluctuating path life often takes. I found the characters easy to relate to and it opened my eyes to the blessings in my own life.
