This movie, like the book, is a masterpiece, a classic in Christian fiction, portrayed on the screen. Francine Rivers wrote the book which the movie is based on, and I heard it on Audible a number of years ago. I liked it then and love it now.
Because it is filled with gritty content, and by necessity adult in nature, from a Christian perspective I would label it either PG-13 or R. Although not overtly graphic, scenes are suggestive of abuse of minors and could be terrifying for the immature viewer.
I watched the movie on my small phone screen and look forward to seeing it on a large screen, especially the scene where Angel reveals her real name. It is the point proving that she truly trusts in her husband’s love for her despite her background of being a prostitute since childhood.
The storyline follows Michael Hosea as he pursues the lady God has picked for him to wed. He never would have chosen Angel except for God’s prompting. The leading actors are perfect in their parts.
I received an advance screening copy of the movie for review. It is wonderful in how it shows that in Christ people are redeemed and made new for His good plans. A shining example of forgiceness that seemed impossible caused tears as I watched. Be sure to take along several facial tissues for dabbing tears.
I received the movie from #MonentumInfluenceNetwork at no cost in exchange for an honest review which I have given.
