We actually saw this moving TWICE over the weekend ... on Saturday afternoon, and then we went with friends to see it again on Sunday. I honestly have been at a lost for words to describe it. As a matter of fact, when trying to explain it to my friends on Sunday, I finally said, "Let's just go see it!" Which is exactly what we did ... and they were left with the exact same feeling that we had on Saturday. This movie will definitely help you to see that there no place life will ever take you where the love and grace of God will not sustain you. The song from the movie "Hope Saved My Life" says it all ... and "it's not a dead end, if it takes you where you needed to go." I don't rate many movies; as a matter of fact, this is the first ... but I felt inclined to do so, because many people are wondering what this movie is about ... but I can promise you that it will bless your life. My teenaged daughter was still talking about it this morning. :-)

I went to see this last night at the suggestion of a friend. I'm not usually one for smaller, independent films, but this one was a definite crowd pleaser. You could tell the movie did not have a huge budget so instead they had to rely on a mature, well written story with very good acting.....something that doesn't seem so easy to find at theaters anymore. The story itself was extremely moving. You could hear everyone in the theater laughing or sobbing at all the right parts, including myself.. There are times when all of the emotional scenes seem a bit too much but this is kind of overcome by the fact that the story is based on a real life person. This is one of the more artistically creative films I have seen in a long time too. Whoever thought up the flow and transitions for introducing the story, especially in the very beginning, did a very good job. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a satisfying trip to the theater anytime soon!

This movie was great! The movie moved along quickly and never got stale or boring. The movie was beautiful...the story and scenes. This is a life affecting movie, without being preachy. It will affect your life for the good. If you want to be uplifted, go see Unconditional. I recommend it whole-heartedly.

We so frequently wander off the path and forget that there is hope and that we have the power to make a difference even if we don't feel like it. This movie really helped me realize that there is hope and it touched me on such a deep level.

Never saw Michael Ealy in a movie like this. Great to see him in a different role. Great cast! Amazing Movie.
