Having read the book before seeing the movie, I was somewhat disappointed that some significant spiritual content was missing in the movie version. I think it left the salvation message a little vague, while the book was more spiritually comprehensive. That being said, it was still a good movie to watch. What I really loved was the full screen picture of Christ from the drawing the girl did. It gave me chill bumps - feeling like Jesus was really there.
Pretty unbelievable at first glance. But the way the story and the book reveal the message of the boy and family and the few outside affirmations (the girl artist) make this a message for contemplation and less skepticism. Got to see this or read the book.
Very, very well done. As a Mom that had a daughter killed in a freak accident at 10 yrs. old I was comforted by this movie. Beyond my expectations. Sometimes movies do not portray the authors words accurately or do a very poor job and then discredit the author's story. This movie covered just the right content to tell of the authors experiences and did not discount the truth of God's word.
