I'll skip the summary, since there are lots of reviews here. This is one of the most beautifully filmed movies that I have ever seen. The acting, the screenwriting, the music are all first rate. I've watched it three times and found more in it each time. It brings to mind, "The Poisonwood Bible" a fine book by Barbara Kingsolver. I highly Recommend this film.
