Forgiveness is hard, sometimes one of the hardest things we experience here on earth. It can be so hard to forgive those who have wronged us or loved ones horribly.
This incredible story has it's dark moments, but the core of the story is about mercy, forgiveness, service, compassion and integrity.
Admitted, I don't find it suitable for young ones. Many stories need to be told, this one might be best for more mature years.
Some find this movie too dark. My response would be that much of early church history is also dark but like with it, we can see the good that triumphed in the face of adversity.
This movie was less than what I had thought it would be. I was disappointed. It was interesting knowing some history about the Salt Lake City Cemetary, but it really wasn't enough to sit through an entire movie. I am generously giving it a 2 star rating.
This movie does not leave you feeling good. I gave my copy back to the store. It is very disturbing and violent. I'd leave it on the shelf.
So rare is it that a movie comes about which, when it's over, leaves you emotionally laid out, stunned, unable to move. This is one. It further delighted me that this precious gem of a movie experience came from Covenant Communications.
As you watch this DVD, you may begin to be aware that you are being lifted from one nuance to another, some of them poignant, and that you don't want to breath till it's all over.
This is one that I dearly hope they decide to make available in Blu-Ray.
