About the Author
EXCEL ENTERTAINMENT is the preeminent independent film distribution company in Utah, and though largely known for its Mormon-themed films (God’s Army, The Work & the Glory series, 17 Miracles, Pride & Prejudice, etc.), Excel has also had success releasing films with non-Mormon themes and stories (Forever Strong, Saints & Soldiers, etc.).
Although the technology and means by which audiences consume films is changing rapidly, the demand for highly creative storytelling that motivates us to live up to the light that each of us has been given is as high as ever. We feel a deep obligation to not only bring stories of hope to the world, but to promote films with high standards of craftsmanship reflective of a belief in a divine and benevolent creator.

This Movie really brings the Spirit, and helps you to build a stronger testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith who truly is the Prophet of the Restoration.
Better than the movie in the visitors center

I actually liked this film better than the one playing at the visitor centers. It was a lot of the same actors, but it was from the perspective of Martin Harris. Completely awe-inspiring. , Warning you need to call in for the free Spencer W. Kimball DVD to the living scriptures thereby putting you on their calling list
Really awsome movie not a documentary.

I think this was amazing. At first I thought it was going to be another documentry then it turned out to be a excellent movie. Gives the backround of Josephs life in a realistic way, like a real movie.
not as good as I thought...

It seemed like this would be a drama but it was a documentary.
Leave you feeling awestruck

'Praise to the Man' is a wonderful, inspiring film that will touch the lives of all who see it. It is a wonderful depiction of the life and mission of the Prophet Joseph. Much like Legacy it will leave you feeling awestruck about the amazing heritage we have as LDS people.

I cry everytime I watch this movie about Joseph Smith! He was a remarkable man and I am grateful that he found this church because without it I would be lost!

I have yet to see or read a series that touched my heart the way this series has. The only negative is that all the books are not made into films.
What a great movie!

I cannot even describe how great this movie is. We went to see it for mutual, and there were leaders crying, girls crying; everyone was very touched by the spirit while watching this movie.
