Trivia

The clock on the wall in the diner never changes because time "stands still" during the encounter. See more »

Goofs

The signs on the wall advertise various kinds of soda for sale, though he only sells water, and as the film progresses, many kinds of candy appear on the counter, and the food moves around for each position of the camera. When looking at the young women, there is a pie before the tray of fruit, but when facing the older man, there is a tray of fruit but no pie to the left of it. See more »

Quotes

Jesus: Scratch any sin and just below the surface you'll find pride.
Jesus: People steal because they think they deserve what other people have worked hard for.
Jesus: They hop from bed to bed because they feel entitled to just satisfy themselves no matter who it hurts, no matter what pain that it causes.

God's Message in a movie
22 September 2011 | by joseph-109See all my reviews

So I looked at the New arrivals on Netflix and saw the title. I thought it was maybe a horror movie so I loaded it and waited but what I got was a really really good movie that touched me and made me feel good and wanting to be better. It's a movie that needs to be on TV, Hulu, and anywhere possible. I enjoyed it and I do believe in God and Jesus and not ashamed to say it. I do not go to church weekly but I have him in my heart and my family believes in him.

Many out there will make negative comments about this movie and that is there right but it is also my right to praise the movie and the message it gives to all. Too much hate goes on in the world and this movie reminds you whether you like it or not that there is good if we can find it in ourselves to make it good. I hope you will give it a chance I think you will be surprised if you believe and maybe if you don't you will be touched.
