You don't have to be familiar with the heartache of cancer to appreciate a film that deals with the healing of mind and soul, as well as body. Which is exactly what JEFFERSON MOORE accomplishes with this movie.
Being a Christian novelist, I can rejoice in the works of others that both inspire me to improve my life and entertain me to the utmost, like 1 MESSAGE.
Ashley Kate Adams delivers a magnificent performance that brings Mr. Moore's script to fruition. She's on screen most of the film and we never tire of her presence. No small feat for any actor.
The ending is quite surprising but richly gratifying and will remain in your thoughts long after the film has ended.
Thank you for allowing me to support this film with my humble opinion.
Let me say the acting in this film is well compared to many Christian films out on the market nowadays and Becca, played by Ashley Kate Adams, displays a great level of range as she carries us on her character's odyssey. Though not every character's acting was outstanding, I think for what the story was aiming to project it was applaud-able. At times the main character would do too much verbal exposition (mainly for the audience to know what the 1 Message said). But eventually "Voice Over" is used in order to go around this issue which ends up helping the film tremendously.
As far as pace goes I have to say the story starts out interesting but somewhat slow. I was surprised at this mainly because I am used to Moore's films taking off earlier in Act 1. At times I felt that the turning points were not as compelling as I would have liked them to be, but none the less they kept the story going.This might cause some in the male audience to not give the film a chance to build up. But to that I would say "endure it" because the payoff in my opinion is worth it.
The cinematography in this film was worth noting and well done especially in the hospital room scenes or the house scenes.Read more ›
Through his encouraging emails, Becca learns what truth is. "We are all of infinite worth." "Our bodies are just gift wrapping, the real treasure is inside." "Courage is doing what you are afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you are scared." The biggest truth Becca learns is about forgiveness and Jesus.
The movie has a positive Christian story line, and shares the importance of belief in and encouraging others. It also shares the important message to breast cancer survivors (just in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, October) that the real treasure of us is on the inside.
However, at over 2.5 hours, the movie was too long. Because it was a drama similar to a Hallmark or Lifetime for Women movie, it didn't have the action to warrant that much time investment. And for me, as someone who likes the end of a movie to be wrapped up with a pretty bow, the ending left me wanting more. (I'll leave it at that, so I don't spoil the ending for you.)
I think the movie was a solid 3 out of 5 stars. As Christians, I believe in supporting Christian films, and this movie would be a nice chick flick to watch on a cold, rainy afternoon when you had the extra time. It is inspiring, encouraging, and honors God. That's a pretty good find, and a rare one at that, for a movie today.
