Seems Great But I Just Found Flaws When Researching

Let's be more cautious about what's right and wrong to God. This film could have passed as a good one. As a well experienced, wiser Christian I found something that may not be easily processed by other Christians: as it goes with movies, kissing (or as with other named Christian films, sleeping with a married partner) in actuality for the actors I detect as wrong. God says "not to show a hint of evil" as saintly actors kiss in this movie. Oh. This is from a true story though I'm not sure if the couple's married in real life. Questionable. Secondly, I noticed on a review site that a woman's neckline was very close to her chest. I've learned to pay more attention to what would really be too close in this case. So, I needed to consider between the chest and neck where the neckline's lowest point is. Much needed nowadays than before and thankfully, I understand a Christian female who so desired a certain shirt or has perceptions different than said here. I see the question is not "too much sexuality or not" in movies, but is the motivation for such sexuality pure and wise when living by righteous absolutes. Thanks, indeed.
