What a heart wrenching journey
Verified purchase
This movie needs a case of kleenex in the best way possible.

I sat down to watch this by myself because my husband doesn't do "chick flicks". My husband wandered in about 15 or 20 minutes in. Somewhere around the 1/2 way mark, he was wondering why we were watching this, irritating me greatly. I was full on bawling and loving the movie, knowing how it ended but trying to wait for it. I sat and cried, and my husband continued to make comments, I finally turned on him to tell him to go in the other room and hush and he was sitting there with tears streaming down his face. In 22 years of marriage I have seen him get teary (not cry) only once. This tells you how emotional it was.

That said, I loved it, anything that can pull your heart strings that hard is a 5 star movie. I think the only other movie that made me cry like that was Steel Magnolias. So excellent film. I fell in love with the family.

The family is a christian family, so God is mentioned both good and bad, and by that I mean sometimes he gets credit and sometimes he gets blamed, and sometimes well meaning followers are less than christian, but this movie addresses all of that and does it well.

Where's Jesus?
Verified purchase
I thought the acting and directing and cinematography was all well done. The agonizing physical pain that the little girl experienced was heartwrenching as well as the strain it put on the entire Bean family to see their daughter/ sister go through was portrayed in a believable way.
However, I was expecting more of a relational experience to God and a dependance upon God throughout the experience than what was shown.
The name of Jesus was only referred to once and that was only by the little girl.
I was hoping the pastor would have at least mentioned Jesus at least once while he was featured in the film.
Don't get me wrong, I liked the movie,
But when the word faith is bantered about I would hope the object of that faith would be highlighted and not just assumed.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Excellent
Verified purchase
Excellent. Wonderfully portrayed. My heart was breaking along with the characters as the story moved along. Kylie Rogers was soooo believable, she should get an Oscar for her performance, and you don't see that in young actors very often. She was wonderful, but the entire cast was also amazing. A great family film about life, love, and God's everyday and not so everyday miracles.

A wonderful movie that is true to the book from which it was made.
Verified purchase
This movie is of course based on a true story taken from the book by the same title. The movie is the story of the Beam family. Their 10 year old daughter Anna comes down with a rare incurable disease. The family becomes ferocious advocates for Anna's healing. It becomes a long hard fight with a great deal of difficulties along the way. Their search for a solution is a dead end. Anna has a freak accident and what follows is an extraordinary miracle, Anna's healing. There is an amazing and dramatic rescue regarding the accident which leaves the medical specialists mystified. The end of the movie not only restores the Beam family it brings renewed faith to the community leaving everyone from doctors, church members as well as everyone involved along the way inspired. If you read the book you will be happy to know this is one movie that follows the book almost word for word. It is truly a great movie that leaves your spirit lifted to the heavens. It is what I call a happy up lifting movie and in these days we can use this type of lifting up. By the way the actors who play the Beam family do a great job. They truly got this movie right.

Tears and sorrow can lead to joy
Verified purchase
This is an experience for anyone who loves tearjerkers and faith movies. Jennifer Garner is stellar as Kristie Beam, a mother dealing with her daughter's, (Anna played by Kylie Rogers) fatal illness. her struggle with her faith, hope and getting answers will move you to tears. Rogers is very good as the suffering daughter. Other memorable and touching performances com from Martin Henderson (Kevin Beam), Queen Latifah (Angela) , Eugenio Derbez (Dr. Nurko), and John Carroll Lynch (Pastor Scott). This is a solid drama that will touch your heart. Watch it!

Very Good Movie
Verified purchase
As a mom, this is so heart-wrenching to watch I will NEVER watch it again. It is totally worth watching, it is a true story and a really wonderful story to share with everyone but man, some scenes are unbearable watching a mother ache over no way to help her daughter.

Very moving
Verified purchase
We saw this at the movie theater when it came out and loved it. We had some visitors over recently and wanted to watch something uplifting. We purchased this on Amazon and have watched it multiple times since.
If you want a movie that has a good Christian message to it, then this is it. It is based on true events and you even get to meet the real people that the movie is about at the end! I would highly recommend it if you are looking for something that will remind you that God does love and care about you! He is always there for each one of us, we just have to be looking for Him!!

I had my doubts, but this film was exceptionally good.
Verified purchase
I feared this movie would be a shallow, corny Christian film but I was wrong. The story was told beautifully. The acting was superb and the dialogue was restrained. The facts surrounding this child’s miraculous healing lead the narrative. There was no need to embellish. Jennifer Garner portrayed a sincerely grieving mother who was put in an unbearable situation, watching her daughter suffer with limited ability to ease her pain. I wept alongside this family as they struggled for answers and understanding. The mother’s anguish was heartbreaking. Jennifer Garner should receive awards for her acting. Anyone who has questioned God’s role in human suffering can turn to this film to see how He never abandons us, even in the darkness. Faith can be lost, but also regained. This movie delivers a message of hope that is often lacking in most contemporary films. Far from corny, this movie is a masterful presentation of how how suffering can draw us into a deeper relationship with God, surrendering totally to His will, trusting completely in His unending love for us. Children, like the child brilliantly played by this young actress, have a way of seeing this better than most adults. Watch this film and witness a miracle. It will humble you and inspire you.
