Product Description

Robyn Lively, Jeffrey Johnson, Michael Bolton. Tyler is only 8 and battling cancer. Every day he copes by sending his prayers to God in letter form and his mailman Brady picks them up. But with no address the Post Office can reach, the already disillusioned carrier tends to the letters as best he can in this true story of hope and faith. 2009/color/113 min/PG-13/fullscreen.

Amazon.com

A boozing postal worker finds his life turned upside down by a boy struggling with cancer. Young Tyler Doherty (Tanner Maguire) faces his cancer with a strong spirit and good humor, and maintains his faith by writing letters to God--letters that the neighborhood's new mailman, Brady McDaniels (Jeffrey Johnson), doesn't know how to handle. Gradually, McDaniels finds himself drawn into the Doherty family's life… and drawn to Tyler's lonely mother, Maddy (Robyn Lively). Letters to God is earnest and family friendly, with moments of slapstick humor to leaven Tyler's troubled circumstances. Any viewer's response to Letters to God will depend on his or her faith; devout Christians will find it a sincere and uplifting testament to God's love, while non-Christians will find it saccharine and heavy-handed. But it's certainly a polished production, with professional cinematography, a cleanly written (if a bit obvious) script, and solid performances from the attractive cast. --Bret Fetzer

The movie has a wonderful message and more than being sad it was uplifting.

While the movie does tug at your heart strings. Letters to God is a good movie. We want Tyler to get better. We want his family and friends to be strong. We want everyone who is touched by his story to find the Lord.

The acting is good. The storyline moves and you find yourself really caring about these people. I love the scenes of Tyler and his friend Samantha. Tyler and his brother. Brady the mailman who eventually is saved by Tyler's Letters to God are all very moving.

Not overly religious? Don't worry.
While it is obviously a religious movie, I don't believe messages are crammed down your throat as in some religious themed movies. The movie is a feel good movie with a beautiful message of friendship, strength, inspiration, prayer, second chances and dignified endings.

This is probably the best movie I've seen in a long, long time! I was thrilled to see a movie that totally smashed the modern non-religious mentality. Thank God that this story has been told! I hope and pray to see more like it.

This is an incredible movie. It lit a fire within me- I now want to know Jesus better. Unfortunately, it is in only a few theaters. I drove from Woodland Hills Ca, to Simi valley to see it and it was well worth the trip. When it comes out on Video I will buy it for my friends and family.

I can't say enough about this movie. The deep faith in God and the simplicity of how he prays. I walked out of the movie with a fire inside that I have not felt for a long time. My friend and I promoted the movie to our school principle and also put it in the church bulletin as a must so for the whole family. Please go out of your way to see this film, you won't regret it.

Dear God,

Would you please inspire film-makers to make more movies like the Letters to God that I just watched. The world you created for us has become a very cold place with hate, greed and violence everywhere. Hollywood adds to this by continuing to make movies and Reality Shows that depict the worst in our society. This movie gave me a renewed hope that there are still good people and values on our Planet Earth and hopefully with your help, Writers, Directors and Producers will create more films like this one.

Regardless of your religiousl persuasion, I think a person would have a heart of stone not to have been touched by the message of this movie. We all have or will have many difficult challenges and situations in our lives. As I watched the film, I felt comforted to know that I wasn't alone in the way I have felt at times as trials came into my life.

I hope people who see this will get in touch with you soon and share this with their family, friends and neighbors. One of the best movies that had a powerful message since I saw Pay it Forward, which has caught on in our Politically Correct Society. Thank you God for the people that made this movie.

May 16, 2010 - this movie was wonderful. I saw it today and although it wasn't in many theaters, I drove across town to see it and am glad I did. It took me back to a time in my life when I discussed everything with God and things were better. I want to get back to that place in life again. Look forward to the movie coming out on DVD and watching it again with family and friends.

This movie came out at the appropriate time and I was lucky enough to watch it at a time in my life when I was asking for a sign from above. God, thank you for hearing my prayers, for answering them through this movie, and for re-lightening in me the flame of not giving-up.It's definitely a movie that is worth seeing and will helped you find your path and purpose.
