This movie was unexpectedly captivating! I expected a slow paced biography of sorts and instead, got a high quality, well written and enjoyable movie that motivated my faith and witness in and for Christ. I also enjoyed quite a few laughs! The movie showed the humanity of Billy, the way God answers prayer, times of doubt for the believer, answering anger and other negatives with grace and intelligence, trusting God in silence, patience, humility, and the fruit of following after God and His Kingdom. Great movie, very good acting, beautiful scenes. I would definitely recommend this movie.
This movie was a great surprise. The acting was very good, and was not slow at all if you are interested at all in the early years of Billy Graham. It was interesting to see how one of his best friends, who helped him, also struggled with his faith. This movie is not only a biography, but it challenges your faith. I highly recommend it. Just remember this is just a story of the beginnings of his faith and ministry, not a comprehensive biography.
We bought this as a family movie. Our kids range from 5 to 12. The movie was really good! Informational and well made. The acting was good. The only thing I would mention is that it may not be suitable for younger kids. This is simply because of Mr. Graham's friend who turns from the Lord. He verbally attacks Billy at one point. There were a few scenes from the Holocaust which were briefly shown. But the message is invaluable and so it needs to be the parent's decision on if the child is ready for that type of discussion. These sections in the movie do allow opportunity for good discussion after the movie. Very good movie! I recommend it!
