I saw this movie a few years back. Just thought about it and checked to see if it was here. It stuck with me enough for that to happen. It's the sort of movie that sticks with you.
I wouldn't recommend this movie to a hardcore evangelical Christian. Same way I wouldn't recommend any other good movie to a hardcore evangelical Christian. It's not a movie that takes the typical pot-shots at Christianity, though. It's a very sincere and sweet and unsettling immersion in the concept of God's grace.
This movie does a better job communicating Grace than most Christians do. But most Christians would miss that, because most Christians are pretty simple-minded, I think.
(Sorry -- I'm a Christian. I don't mean to be self-loathing, or whatever that is. Most people in general are pretty simple-minded, really.)
