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.
