Sandy Helms1 Stars Out Of 5May 14, 2010Sandy HelmsThis is not only a slow-moving story which my family did not like, but, most importantly, it encourages children not to regard sin seriously. One of the characters used the d*mn word plus- and most profound,was the artist in the movie and his influence on the boy. For example: The young boy- the main character-is befriended by the artist. At the artist's place - the boy is exposed to a lady model who the man has drawn. The boy gazes at the painting of her, which exposes her entire back- she has been painted in the nude. During one of the boy's visits, the model is there as well. The man tells her, "Take your clothes off." He says this in FRONT of the boy! She goes into the dressing room and comes out wearing a robe. The model also befriends the boy. After the boy leaves, the lady sits on a chair and lets her robe drop - exposing her entire back - and it comes very close to exposing more. Later, in the movie, when the boy makes it clear to the man that he thinks the two of them are married - the man replies, "This is the 1900's - (He clearly implies that marriage is not expected as in days past.) Viewers' morals are shaped by these kind of movies. I am very disappointed in this movie, and that it is aimed towards children! This part of the movie was so completely unnecessary. We read the book and it was completely clean.
