Simple little story that you can predict a mile away, but still worth watching. More of a drama, although it seems like a comedy at first. Love Kathleen Turner, so it was great to see her back in a starring role. It doesn’t rip apart Catholics either, so that’s cool too.
The opening scene with Kathleen Turner’s voice praying in a church at first made me think I was watching a horror movie, her gravely voice is made for voicing people possessed by demons.
Not nearly as bad as the score and some reviews make it out to be
I’m surprised at such a low score for this movie! First, please know that I was born, baptized, and raised Catholic. I’ve since moved to another religion, but not for any “Catholic hate” reasons at all. So I have a STRONG knowledge of Catholicism. It seems MOST of the negative reviews claim it’s “Christian/Catholic bashing”… I would wonder how many of those folks actually WATCHED it or just wrote a review based on a presupposed notion. There is NO Christian bashing at all IMO. Just portraying people such as I’ve known all my life the way they are, and the portrayal isn’t bad in any way, as far as I’m concerned.
Overall it’s very balanced – yeah there’s a few potshots at Catholics (“I don’t have to think… I’m Catholic”) but overall, the portrayal is VERY accurate to my Catholic upbringing and those in the faith I know today. Sure, hardly ANY nuns still wear the habit – but it’s just little things. By and large the portrayal I thought was fair on ALL SIDES, not only for the Catholics but all the other characters.
I’ll be honest and say I FULLY EXPECTED a “Christians are stupid knuckle dragging Neanderthals” flick – I expected to shut it off half way through. Instead, I watched the whole thing and rather enjoyed it.
The movie itself actually plays quite well – Kathleen Turner takes a bit of getting used to because of her very deep, manly voice… but overall, it has a nicely done “indie” feel to it in every way.
No, it’s NOT an award contender in any way – some of the acting is rather stiff and forced, the plot is predictable, and there are quite a few clichés and stereotypes. But it’s VERY watchable, totally held my attention, was touching in places, and ENJOYABLE to watch right up to the end for me.
Give it a shot – don’t let the negative reviews implying it’s a “Christian bashing” flick deter you.
