Poignant, real, and redemptive -yet it doesn't give pat answers or pretend to be something it isn't. This movie reminds us that change, while it isn't easy, is possible especially when we don't try to do it on our own.
It is definitely worth the price of admission. I wouldn't miss it - in fact, I saw it twice!

Great movie, loved the actors, powerful message, want to take a friend back with me to see it again. I'm going to buy the novel. Wish there were more movies like this in theaters!

Great weekend for this uplifting movie to open, we need it's message! This story involves adult themes but also shows how kids are affected by adult choices too. I like how God is shown as an option & one that brings relief to troubled lives. Great story with characters that stay true to life & it is about real issues.

This movie was well done. It really paints a good picture of just how hard it is for people with addictions and compulsive behaviors to change. I love the line where Vivica Fox said " it is a 12 step program, just with Jesus! You know when Dr. Bob started the first AA groups they were Christ centered. It's so much easier to acknowledge your higher power as the one true God who has Sovereign Power over everything. I love the song" I lay it down", because it speaks to the fact that at some point you really do have to surrender and let God do his work in you which takes having a personal relationship with him as your Lord and Savior. He will remove our character defects for us we just have to be ready to let him. I'm blessed to be a women's Celebrate Recovery facilitator for a mixed addictions group in Vernon, TX. It's wonderful to see so many women changing their lives around as God begins to heal us and work through us to see what's holding us back.

This movie is a "must see" for all adults (not for children). The story has many truths that unfold as we watch the life's struggle of another. Powerful movie as we reflect on how life experiences affect each of us ... in our diversities.
