| I very underestimated movie
This movie is a proof (at least to me) that you should not always trust reviews and user comments. After reading comments on this movie I had a picture that it wouldn't be very good at all, but I was certainly corrected on that point. This is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. The movie is quite "heavy" though, so I can understand that it doesn't appeal to everyone, but for anyone who likes a little depth and aren't influenced by what other people think I really recommend this movie. I rated it 9 out of 10, and it was certainly worth it.

Trivia

The Gospel of Thomas is by the Gnostic denomination which was founded in 125 A.D. and became virtually nonexistent after around 1400 A.D. due to lack of membership.


Quotes

Dr. Reston: What's happening in your life, Frankie? Do you have a lot of stress at work?
Frankie: I cut hair.
Dr. Reston: Any trouble with a significant other?
Frankie: Yes.
Dr. Reston: And that is?
Frankie: I'm not very significant.


Goofs

After Frankie receives the thorn-crown marks on her forehead, they disappear/reappear in different sizes/shapes for the rest of the film.


Alternate Versions

The DVD features an optional director's alternate ending from the theatrical version. In the scene near the end after Frankie (Patricia Arquette) is freed from her affliction, Father Kiernan (Gabriel Byrne) carries her outside in his arms and sits at a bench, and we see her collapse in his arms. He looks up to see her holding a bird in her hand, then she walks away. After she apparently walks away, he looks back down to see her lifeless body still in his arms -- she actually died from the fifth stigmata and he watched her soul depart. In the theatrical version, after she walks away with the bird, Father Kiernan is left alone on the bench, and the impression is that she's "cured" and lives the rest of her life naturally.
