This is a wonderful and inspiring movie. The acting is excellent. The only reason I don't give the movie 5 stars is that we found it hard to understand the main character because of his Scottish accent. My advice is to use the subtitles.
I saw the movie before reading the book. I got the book to see how closely the movie followed the book. I was very pleased that the movie followed the book closely.Faith is that which we cannot see but know it is there. Potatoes grow out of sight but we know they are there. My faith needs to be there growing under the surface and in conjunction with the Holy Spirit guiding - correcting - teaching - leading me in God's way.
