His choice not only helps Alza, but also makes a difference in his life as well.

I watched the whole movie not out of curiosity (I knew how it would end) but I liked the main characters & 'the moral of the story'.

Alza Bennett's car breaks down and leaves her stranded in the middle of nowhere. How will she ever make it home for Easter now? After a series of mishaps, she stumbles across a hermit fixing his tractor. Moments later, she has convinced him to drive her several hundred miles to her parents' house. After all, it's imperative she makes it home for Easter.

Lincoln has no desire to be pestered by anyone, let alone a spoiled woman with no thoughts of anyone but herself. However, he agrees to drive her, and on the way they encounter all kinds of hilarious calamities.

At this point, it doesn't seem like Alza will ever make it home. And if she doesn't, how will she ever make that good impression on her family that she is striving so hard to make?

Backroads and Lilies is one of those movies I hadn't heard much about until I saw it on the shelf of a local store. I wondered if it would be a good movie. I wasn't disappointed.

While it starts off a bit slow at first, the momentum quickly builds. Jefferson Moore who plays Lincoln is perfect for the role with his crusty glares. (He also played in one of my favorite movies of all time, Clancy). Christina Karis, who plays Alza has delightful facial expressions and plays her role well.

Backroads and Lilies is full of great lessons. First of all, lying never solves anything, which Alza soon finds out. Secondly, God teaches us to put others before ourselves (Philippians 2:3). Alza clearly doesn't do this and soon learns an important lesson. Third, serving others can make a huge difference, as Lincoln discovers. His choice not only helps Alza, but also makes a difference in his life as well.

Backroads and Lilies is a wonderful story of redemption. It includes humor, as well as touching moments.

This movie is perfect for people who want to see the main characters grow personally, but not necessarily come together as a couple. The whole family can watch it, but those who like characters to unfold would enjoy this movie most. I enjoyed getting to know Alza, even though she was irritating, Mr. James was more endearing as a hermit who changes. It was a little slow in places. Who would have imagined seeing a Black princess befriended by a white, silent hermit of a man! Go figure. Enjoyed it.

I enjoyed the plot very much---it's always fun to see two people from such different backgrounds thrust together for an "adventure". The two main characters, played by Christina Karis and Jefferson Moore, were splendid and very funny. Their facial expressions were fabulous!

This is obviously a "home grown" movie and it shows in the mediocre quality of the supporting cast and production. For example, the automobile club operator was silly and amateurish. The green-screen effects used to create the passing scenes viewed out the truck door windows were crude (edges of the green screen were too soft and out-of-focus elements like Ms. Karis' shoulder made a poor transition).

But the reason I gave this gem 5 stars in spite of these and other shortcomings is because of the great story, excellent pacing, humor and superb acting by Karis and Moore. Plus, the soundtrack includes refreshingly good original music. It elevated the movie to a very entertaining and enjoyable experience.

If you'd like to relax with a funny movie with a warm heart and a poignant message, this is your movie!

I was looking for a feel good romantic comedy, but got something more. I see that some people here complain about the movie not being racially charged enough, or worldly enough, ect., but I loved it's simplicity. I feel that we all need to let go of always wanting to do the worn out "racial" thing. Just let people be people. Yes, so this movie wasn't your typical big budget Hollywood flick, but that is what I loved about it. I love that it was just able to be what it is, a movie about what it means to actually care about people and learn things about others and yourself. The actors were wonderful and funny. I cried laughing at the part where she accidentally slammed his thumb in the tailgate. There are a lot of laughs, a lot of feels, and a lot of positivity. I am so glad to see a movie that isn't full of violence, inappropriate content that my children can't watch, and negativity. I really enjoyed this movie.
