Not Today was highly disappointing. The rich kid is arrogant,and selfish and he displayed a total lack of love and compassion by reminding the dad several times that he sold his daughter into slavery. Instead of showing God's love and acceptance of the Dalits in India , and sharing the message of the gospel, it focuses on the rich kids lack of faith, until he finally realizes he needs God's help. The movies approach to slavery in India failed miserably to show any real solution to the issue at hand.

I had such hopes for this movie, thinking it would bring awareness and possibilities of what might be done to eradicate the world-wide problem of slavery today. Instead, the movie focuses on a spoiled, rich kid and his family and the worn out tale of how "God abandoned" him, his family and friends repeatedly encourage him to pray and trust that he was never really abandoned, and he ultimately, of course, prays hard and finds out that they were all right. Meanwhile, a little girl in India is sold by her father, rich kid and the father traipse through several cities to find her and buy her back, then rich kid goes home to sunny, comfortable OC to remember how fortunate he is while others are not. Statistics on slavery were shown amidst the credits. Nothing realistic about this movie at all. The only pain I had was trying to decide if I should stay or leave.
