After reading the reviews I felt it would be a good movie to purchase. Upon watching it I was very disappointed concerning the modesty issue. It is not a movie I will be having my husband and son watch, nor can share it will others. If you are concerned about moral purity this is not a movie to watch. Other than that the movie is well done and enjoyable. The slight new age undertone is in it.
This being based on a true story you know that some liberties are taken to make this story entertaining. The overall story has the hand of God all over it as I viewed the story. God knows us before we are even born and is able to guide and help us through the Holy Spirit, and you see this in Moondance through her gentle and loving spirit as she lights us up through her story. The example she sets is what God wants to see in all of us. She keeps turning the other cheek and acts as Christ would in the trials she faced and won each person over with her kindness and love! I am 70 years old and she touched me enough to make me rethink my own actions.
It being a true story makes it a great movie for all the family and especially children. It had just about every emotion a person can experience: love, sadness, friendship, challenges of adults and also chilren, disappointments, especially happiness and success .
