The Bar Has Been Raised for Faith-Based Films

With regard to writing, acting, production, cinematography, soundtrack, and score, this film can clearly hold its own up against any secular film. The plot was engaging and complex. The acting was not only believable, but also moving. No single actor stole the show, but rather the entire cast pulled equal weight. For a duration of the film, I was lost in a story and was quickly committed to the characters - a feat not easily accomplished in many mainstream films. The beautiful score was moving without being distracting. Lastly, while clearly touching on a faith-based message, BTFS did not preach to the viewer. Frankly, I do not go to the cinema to be spiritually moved. I go to be entertained. It is my hope that potential viewers are not turned off from watching this film based on prior faith-based films. I am confident any non-believer or fan of dramas would equally enjoy this film. BTFS is a refreshing change for faith-based films and has set a new standard for all dramas.

Beyond the Farthest Star

What a beautiful movie! I was completely absorbed in the film, lost in the story and the portrayal of the characters. I felt their struggle and pain, especially with the problems that were similar to those in my own life. I was distraught by the wrong decisions made by the characters, seeing the dramatic portrayal of the damage caused by secrets kept from those closest to you. “Beyond the Farthest Star” is an incredibly well-made film. The quality of acting, writing, production, and musical score rivals many high-budget films. While I normally go to the theater to watch action movies (primarily for the special effects “eye candy”), I was completely absorbed and entertained by this film. I am incredibly proud and blessed to have see this in the theater. For everyone.

Engaging Movie, Compelling Impact!

Beyond The Farthest Star is without doubt the best faith-based feature film I have ever experienced. I say "experienced" because merely "viewing" this film as a detached observer is next to impossible. This engaging drama simply offers so many points of connection with real-life people in real-life situations that only an entirely disinterested multitasking super-achiever using the film strictly as "background noise" could help but be affected in some meaningful way by this masterfully scripted, astutely casted, brilliantly performed, and profoundly impactful story. Unlike most of its generic counterparts, BTFS is not overtly "preachy." Instead, it offers slices of life that have multiple points of contact with all audiences, all pointing in the direction of God. Its unsanitized peek into a particular family's world offers hope to lost and struggling souls and, at the same time, challenges Christians to personally apply the principles we (sometimes glibly!) proclaim. A "MUST SEE"!!

Great movie! The cast was wonderful. Very heartfelt presentation of a problem that could actually exist and how this family handled it. Uplifting conclusion gives hope to those with similar problems. Very moving.

This movie is so well written and captured on camera!! It's not very often that I find myself still trying to sort out the ending with only 10 minutes of the film left. Andrew Librizzi skillfully takes the audience into the lives of the characters. I felt like a fly on the wall in someone's home. The raw emotion coupled to believable characters is a rare find in today's hyper-sexed, CGI world of surrealism theater.
