This is a fabulous movie in so many ways. Because it doesn't try to covert you or deconvert you, its just one woman journey

This movie is well done. Vera Formiga does a great job with her character. Though the pace is a little slow, I think that this is intentional. You are definitely drawn into the characters. I didn't find myself waiting for the end of the movie! This is a thought-provoking production, tackling the complicated subject of religion. Well worth seeing it.

Higher Ground review

Well done movie... spiritually atuned Christian might be challenged to having more open dialog towards those who are hurting or going through crisis of faith, instead of being preachy. Scenes were realistic, not portraying Christians as fanatics but realistic, ie sometimes people are passionate for GOD but disconnected with others' struggle and lack empathy. Vera did an awesome job as a woman dialoging with GOD, seeking His peace and struggling with the pain of this life.

One of the few films I've seen that takes religion seriously. The characters and situations ring true, with enough uncomfortable scenes to make you feel that you've dropped uninvited into people's real, private lives. Many of these scenes are still on my mind. Beautifully photographed, brilliantly directed.

THIS MOVIE MAY ONLY APPEAL TO A SMALLER AUDIENCE BUT IT WAS WELL DONE. IT GIVES A VOICE TO A UNIVERSAL PLEA FOR SELF DISCOVERY AND STRENGTH
