A hilarious, touching movie about love and suffering!
This wonderful movie made me laugh and cry. It's an honest, heartfelt story about life and everything that makes life meaningful--joy, pain, hope, healing, and forgiveness. As an academic theologian, I thought that the theology in the film was superb. God is loving, but loves us too much to control us. We are free and responsible because God made us that way, and so everything we decide and do is important. Yet, God is always with us, and faith and friends are what pull us through.
The acting is exceptional throughout, so that you forget you're watching a film and just sympathize with the characters. It's also very family friendly. Highly recommended. (review by Jon Paul Sydnor, PhD)
