Mixed emotions on this one. There is some really unique filming in this movie and if I could have skipped to the last few minutes of the film I would have been truly blessed. I know a lot of people really liked this film because it does deal with some real issues. I think they purposely went over the top on a lot of issues so it did make the point it was trying to.
Don, a nineteen-year-old sophomore at a Texas junior college, tries to escape his Bible Belt upbringing for life in the Pacific Northwest at “the most godless campus in America.”
I never liked jazz music because jazz music doesn’t resolve. I used to not like God because God didn’t resolve. But that was before any of this happened. In Donald Miller’s early years, he was vaguely familiar with a distant God. But when he came to know Jesus Christ, he pursued the Christian life with great zeal. Within a few years he had a successful ministry that ultimately left him feeling empty, burned out, and, once again, far away from God. In this intimate, soul-searching account, Miller describes his remarkable journey back to a culturally relevant, infinitely loving God.

There is a lot of inappropriate talk and scenes for children. I personally wouldn’t let anyone under 17 watch it.
