Goofs

The entire movie, God is portrayed from a Christian point of view (Jesus, etc...). The prayers at Missy's funeral toward the end that can be heard in the background are the ones recited at Jewish funerals and have no connection to Christianity whatsoever. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Willie: Who wouldn't be skeptical when a man claims to have spent an entire weekend with God? In a shack, no less. And not just any shack. This was the shack. What I'm about to tell you is a little on the... well, it's a lot on the fantastic side. But that doesn't necessarily mean it's not true.

Not your typical Christian film
6 March 2017 | by missrachelschSee all my reviews

I am not a regular church goer, nor did I have high expectations for this film at all, and I do not cry in films, but this movie made me ball. Most Christian films fall flat and can be subjective, but this was different. I knew people who were fans of the book and highly anticipated the film, but seeing it is not a movie, it is an experience not to be missed. The values of forgiveness and true faith are challenged and as the viewer it was overwhelming. Better than any of the Oscar nominations this year.
