Safe! Amazing movie about the Love of Christ!

This was the best movie of the year by far! Great story! The movie was clearly about Jesus, how God could use fallible men to save people. I didn’t see that the movie exalted any man because the men/ladies in the movie clearly had problems that were bigger than themselves. It dealt with religion vs true faith in many ways and you will leave with a fresh sense of your faith or you may come to believe in Jesus during the movie. My family and I do not see rated R movies and we have a pretty low tolerance for anything crazy in a movie. If I had a 6 year old I would be super comfortable with taking him/her to see it. Since the movie is safe I say form your own opinion after you see it for yourself.
