Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Although the story is involving, the production sometimes looks and feels like a long commercial, and the acting and writing have little depth or complexity. The transformation of a lost soul into someone who can again see life's beauty might compel some viewers enough to overcome disappointments in cinematic quality. Best for Christian families looking for a religious interpretation of a classic story.
