Director D. David Morin broke the standard prohibition about actors and actresses never looking directly into the lens, explaining (DVD at 18:25) that when shooting film that will be primarily viewed on personal media rather than the big screen, he shoots "tight and tighter" rather than "wide and tight", occasionally using an actor or actress looking directly into the lens for the tightest shots (at 51:19, 57:04, and 1:02:13).

great movie
10 January 2013 | by kmoss42396See all my reviews

This was a fantastic movie. I do not see how anyone could hate on this movie.

Johnny is one of the most lovable characters I've seen in a while is testament to the Christian faith is outstanding and astonishing.

I would watch this movie again and again.

The message and theme are clearly delivered and well thought out at that.

This is a great movie for the whole family to fall in love with.

I would definitely recommend this movie to everyone I know.

Well acted.

And done by a great filming company.

This movie shows that with faith anything is possible.
