"Saving Winston is well written and the cinematography is beautiful. However, for some, especially the younger generation who have been raised with fast paced movies and only want to be amused will find it hard to watch since it requires one to engage in the story line rather than have it race before you.
I purchased this DVD in this hopes of showing it to our church youth group. The bio and story line sounded good and I guess in a way it was ok. The movie ran for 98 minutes but really only had enough story and action for 30. Lots of lovely scenery, background music and fluff. Beyond that it was time wasted. There is no way this dragging, poorly written story line would keep the interest of any audience.
While the movie moved very slowly and contained very little dialogue...the music, cinematography and scenery was absolutely beautiful!
As I said, the movie moved very slowly but at the end of the movie it became clear, from our perspective, that this is "exactly" how GOD moves...very tenderly, quietly and with exquisite care for each individual. We wept as we felt HIS presence in "Ashe's" troubled life reborn. "Wonderful Movie"!
I went searching for the soundtrack and even accompaniment cd's but found none...very disappointed. I would love to see this soundtrack produced and distributed. Also, I would "love" to find Liesel Brooks song "Broken"...what an amazing ballad of an individuals struggle and GOD'S amazing grace!!!
The movie's dialogue is so stilted, cheesy,and slow. Not at all what I thought it would be. It would not keep anyone's attention. I think the filmmaker tried making an 'artsy' film, but it really fell flat. Would not recommend.
