Inspirational family film that asks some really big questions
This is a very emotional story about a father and son searching for God and connecting with each other along the way. The father is a scientist trying to prove the existence of God and heaven through physics and mathematics. There's a lot of talk about things beyond what we can see. (i.e. String Theory, Multiple Dimensions, etc.) When the father comes down with a brain disorder, the son must help him see what his equations and mathematics cannot show. The film does a great job of building characters that you care about, and showing the importance of family and faith. I really loved how it showed that reason can be a stepping stone for faith. That the two work together, not against each other. Overall, I really enjoyed this movie, as did my family.
