Quotes

[first lines]
Willie: Who wouldn't be skeptical when a man claims to have spent an entire weekend with God? In a shack, no less. And not just any shack. This was the shack. What I'm about to tell you is a little on the... well, it's a lot on the fantastic side. But that doesn't necessarily mean it's not true.

Definitely a movie for beleivers
11 March 2018 | by pearlite-25660See all my reviews

I knew something wasn't the norm when too much time was taken over close spiritualist conversations. Sure enough the relationship with the daughter proved to be the peg that this movie hinged on. A lot of soulful moments learning about forgiveness. Not a movie to grab and hold one's attention and probably best watched alone so one can reflect upon life. Good for the soul.
