As a big fan of the book the movie is based on, I went in thinking there was no way that the movie could compare with the book.
While it is very hard to translate a series of essays into a story with a flowing plot, the creators of Blue Like Jazz the movie did an exceptional job.
The film is unique in that there is no way to compare it to any other Christian film. The message of Jesus isn't heavily preached, and instead, a truthful representation of a boy brought up in the Southern Baptist religion is presented. It also leads to a discussion on what it means to be a true follower of Christ.
While there is language, alcohol, and drug use, the movie has integrity and heart, and I highly recommend it!
