a great job of portraying the Christian perspective. I would recommend this movie
It is hard for a wife or husband to forgive infidelity. I truly only believe that it would be ALMOST impossiable to do that without the Lord's help. I am speaking from being a wife myself and married for over 10 years.
This movie does show how HARD that forgiveness can be...even to forgive yourself of something you did can be ROUGH. This is a movie of forgiveness and Love. I wish the movie would have went a little more into the "forgive yourself" aspect but over all-we enjoyed watching it.
This movie does not "capture" you to the point where you cant get up and walk away but it does hold your interest and makes you think. I dont believe that any kids(under 12) would find this movie enjoyable-due to the fact it is kind of slow moving at points and the subject of infidality. It is a clean movie . Final thoughts--it is a good movie and does cover a good subject.
also watch the actor interviews after the movie and see how it went together amazing
Now for the more refined review:
The movie itself was a bit slow in terms of there was no intense/high action moments which is actually good because it made it feel more realistic. (Meant To Be had a similar pace for the most part).
The message itself was 'OK' but it struck a personal chord at the end with the verse, "therefore there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.." which still amazes me because of no matter what we have done (Paul persecuted the Church!) we are fully and freely forgiven through the grace of Christ, and that His goodness towers over all that we have done. "Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?"
The above was a personal thing but objectively the 'OK' Christian message takes off a star. What could have been more prominent was the whole story of God's grace through salvation and atonement of Christ to strengthen it a bit more.
The character's being Christian (at least Lucas' wife) didn't stand out that much either.
And last of all the credits at the end wrapped up the story nicely but it made it seem as if it were a true story (that and the slow pace).
Overall, nice movie!
