An Inspiring Movie
This was a wonderful movie and showed the example that God wants us to love our neighbors. We are to be God's hands and feet and that's what these neighbors did. I don't understand the previous reviewer who said that he and his wife sat down on a Saturday night thinking that the film would be action, drama, or comedy. He was annoyed that this kind of film is allowed in the main-stream and that such a film can be put upon so many innocent viewers. First of all, are you really an innocent viewer? Didn't you read a synopsis of the movie before you rented/watched it? My husband and I always do that to see if we're interested. If you don't like the synopsis, then I suggest you don't watch it. But you are mistaken when you say that the film was put upon you. You chose to view it obviously without checking out the content of the film. As far as your comment about the film being "allowed in the main-stream", when did you become judge and juror of what films should be allowed to be viewed? The last I heard the USA was a free country and we are allowed to view any movie we want. I would much rather see this type of heart-warming movie than a gory, violent, full of vulgarity sort of movie. And the story is most believable; God performs miracles everyday. This movie was not an experience in religion, but a story of hope, faith, and dependence upon Our Creator, God. And yes, I am a devout Christian who believes that God wants us to love Him with all our hearts and love thy neighbor as thyself. And that's what these neighbors did. If I was unfortunate enough to be in such a situation, I would want neighbors like these to be here for me. As God's creation, we have free-will to choose Him and His love or reject it. I pray that you will not reject it. The joy of knowing God is too extraordinary for description! Peace and Grace to you and your wife.
