Editorial Reviews

Rosalinde Mynster stars as Sara, an intelligent and devout 17-year-old Jehovah s Witness who passionately pursues her religion s teachings. But when she falls in love with older boy and non-believer Teis (Pilou Asbæk), Sara is forced to choose between the desire she feels and the faith that forbids it. In a family torn apart by sin and salvation, can a teenage girl discover the courage to change her life forever? And in a world that rarely understands her insular creed, is love the most mysterious power of all? Jens Jørn Spottag and Sarah Boberg co-star in this poignant coming-of-age drama from award-winning filmmaker Niels Arden Oplev, director of the international sensation Drømmen/We Shall Overcome.

Customer Reviews

Like wise, when you constantly disobey the rules JW follow, ya got to go.
D. Brooks
It means that you lose those people who stay in the faith who are so dear to you, whether it being your mother, father, or other beloved family members and friends.
FLUTTERFLY
Overall it very accurately portrays what Jehovah's Witnesses do and how they think.

This movie is very fair, well-done, and extemely accurate. As a former Jehovah's Witness, I can say that one of the greatest pain a Witness can face is the choice to leave. To leave this religion doesn't mean that you are leaving that faith only. It means that you lose those people who stay in the faith who are so dear to you, whether it being your mother, father, or other beloved family members and friends. Witnesses potray ones who leave to religion as very selfish. This movie is very true in showing the pain and sorrow of leaving from the other persons perspective. It does not bash the Witnesses (I was purposely looking to inaccuracies to which I really didn't find any). This is a story that needs to be told because the main character, Sara, is one of thousands who have experience this heartache, a pain that never goes away. The usual response from an active Witness would be "that one who leaves knows the consequenses". There is nothing that could ever prepare a person or having them comprehend the enormity of losing the ones that they love so much. The ones that will appreciate this story the most will be the ones who have left as they will no doubt be able to relate to atleast an extent of it. It will help non-Witnesses see what happens when one leave the organization and give them insight as to what they believe.

Actually I just caught this movie on cable. I grew up JW and knew exactly what this young woman was going through. I cried the whole movie! It's sad that cults like this can tear families apart in the name of God. It's a great movie and I highly recommend it to anyone who grew up,left or is thinking about joining the JW'S.

****Potential spoilers****

A danish film with subtitles which accurately portrays the world that born in Jehovhah's Witnesses live in and the trauma they experience should they choose to leave. Being a former JW myself... I had to see it.

First... there are supposed inaccuracies such as the elder having a beard (is allowed in some countries including Holland where the movie is set) and women wearing jeans whilst in field service (again, allowed in certain countries and areas including Holland).

Now to the actual movie...

Sara is a 17 year old who falls in love with a non-jw (or a "worldly" in their speak). The movie progresses as she struggles to stay with the world she knows while at the same time longing for the world in her new found love for Teis. It's a touchy balancing act and one that thousands of JW women face everyday.

One of the elements I appreciated the most watching this movie was how underplayed the drama was with the JC (judicial committee) scene being the main example. Anyone who has experienced these ( I was put through a few ) will tell you there is plenty of opportunity to play up the drama here and still be completely believable by those in the know. They kept it simple and let the story tell itself.

The final scene where Sara asks her father if he loves her was one of my favourites. This scene illustrates perfectly the fathers highly conditional love for his daughter... she can only be a part of his life if her religious views comply with his... check out the reviews written by those who say they are still Jehovah's Witnesses to get my point.

For a born in Jehovah's Witness especially this movie highlights just how far this cult goes.

Format: DVD
the movie "worlds apart" played on a cable channel last night and i just happened to catch it just as it began. without mentioning too many details, by the time the movie was finished i felt as if i had been inside the life of an "on the verge of womanhood," teenager confronted with a choice of standing by her family's strict religious upbringing or choosing to leave the faith and family for a carnal relationship out in the wider world. the acting was good, very natural, and i didn't have the sense of watching people act. the lead player was the warmhearted eldest daughter and family caretaker but, interestingly, she had her own very strong personality and some personal ideals she silently clung to throughout this movie. i really enjoyed watching this drama play out and was bit surprised and pleased at this young actors soulful integrity within what seems a highly realistic movie. the subtitles were a little bit fast as i recall now but as with most movies one finds compelling watching, the moment by moment contextual meaning see's you through what you may miss in line reading. a fine movie.

The movie was very well done. Overall it very accurately portrays what Jehovah's Witnesses do and how they think. The devastating impact of their policy of shunning those who are expelled comes through loud and clear without being oversated.

(***Potential spoilers***)

First, to expect this movie to be like every other movie is unfair. It does not exist for the sole reason to entertain you like "Die Hard" or "Shawshank Redemption." This is what some REAL JW's have to deal with, exactly. This is a recreation of their REAL world. I just watched it with a room full of exJW's, with multiple females in it having gone through nearly identical situations and even disfellowshippings. I know at least 3 others that have gone through the same. If you have never been a JW, then you may find this not as thrilling of a "movie" as some others you are used to. However, this movie has tremendous value in it clearly showing you the overwhelming no-win complexity in choices that most non-JW (or maybe non-cult) people never have to struggle with. So, don't downgrade this highly accurate movie on that petty concept because of your ignorance. Not everything is about "entertainment" value.

Second, further along the lines of accuracy:
* A) There ARE dark depressing Kingdom Halls. Having previously been a JW for 25 years and
attending DOZENS of them, I can say that they do indeed exist and I have been in numerous. Not quite as bad as the movie, but close.
* B) Elders in a few other countries ARE allowed to wear beards.
* C) Students ARE often encouraged to not pursue education. Along with some of the other comments on here, I too know many JW's who sacrificed careers and education because of 1975 alone. Also, I personally was directly asked when I would quit college to pioneer. It happens plenty and is in writing in the WTS publications.
So don't downgrade this highly valuable movie on a handful of petty concepts because of supposed minor inaccuracies in here.
