Very rarely is a film better than the novel upon which it is based. We are big fans of Robert Whitlow's novels (The Trial is our favorite) and we felt this at least matched the novel.No... it is not as evangelical as the novel but it is both a GOOD film and has a great message about the power of choices.
It was a disappointing film that could have carried a powerful message about the power of prayer, but fell through. The actors were good, except for the missionary. The plot was too weak and the message just didn't come across. It's too bad, as it had potential.
