    ★★★★★

    Stunning might be putting it lightly. This journey of this film is incredible, and every single actor gives it their all, making the little community feel so alive that each background character has something going on.

    Movies like this are always difficult to review in a non-biased manner. From past experience, most "Christian" films are pretty terrible. Naturally, they're trying to get a message across to the audience, but the movie itself is very rarely technically good enough to not have that blatant message interfere with the overall performance. I feel like it was a movie designed for adults, but with a sort of child method of delivery.
