Where to begin..
15 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

I cannot even begin to describe the disappointment and trauma I faced after viewing this film. As a Christian, I was surprised to find that little to nothing about this movie had to do with the song of Solomon, either the natural relationship the book possesses or the Spiritual paradigms to Christ and the Church. The movie mostly quotes Ecclesiastes and the Proverb about the adulterous woman. If you want a romantic movie that draws your heart closer to your spouse or to Jesus, this is NOT your film.

This movie was about an honorable man who was portrayed in the beginning to be full heartedly pursuing God and avoiding the mistakes his father made. He continues to honor God and his wife as he becomes a big star and then all of a sudden...his marriage gets rocky because his intimacy with his wife dwindles and his new opening singer, Shelby hits on his weak spot, his humanity. He falls with Shelby and begins to live a crazy lifestyle of adultery and drugs. He lies to his wife and ignores his son, then finally comes to his senses and starts to make a turn around ONLY to go back to his old ways and so it seems, to Shelby. The movie ends with two minutes of redemption of him singing a song to his wife and her accepting him back with little question. He quotes Ecclesiastes and declares "life is meaningless" and so everyone should just enjoy their wife before they die and TAKE.

I'm very familiar with the book of Ecclesiastes but I felt hopeless after this movie. I appreciate those trying to make "Christian films" but where was Christ? Redemption? Perfect love? Where was true repentance and restoration? Don't see it. You will only cry buckets of tears with your friends/spouse/loved ones after.
