Trivia

In 2005, William Paul Young was working three jobs and living in a 900-square-foot apartment with his wife and four of his six children after losing his home to bankruptcy. He started writing a novel during his daily 40-minute train commute, hoping to express his feelings about God to his children, since he couldn't afford to buy holiday gifts. He expected his family and maybe a few friends to read it. The book sold over 20 million copies. See more »

Goofs

When Mack is at the shack and has a breakdown, he throws a few pieces of furniture against the walls and lays down on the floor and he is the only thing on the floor; when he awakens at the end of the movie, there is a standing chair next to him on the floor. See more »

Well done adaptation from book
4 March 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I loved the book, and therefore was very interested to see the movie production. I thought the movie followed the book as closely as I've ever observed before...while there are differences, the essence of the message, and desire of God to have a personal relationship with each one of us - came through. I thought the casting was well done, and the visual translations of the book's imagery close to how I "imagined" it in reading. Thank you for bringing this book to the big screen, and I hope many find hope in Jesus, outside of religion.
