What a great movie! I heard about this one after it hit DVD and I was really impressed with it. There are many things in this movie that an adult would need to explain to younger viewers, but they are handled respectfully and without all of the "shock" that Hollywood feels necessary to fill up a movie. It has become one of my family's favorites and all of my children like to watch it. The kid factor holds their interest and the content of the film opens doors to discuss many life issues as well as history and geography. Jim Caviezel gives a great, although brief performance. Ben Tibber is the star and is the focus of the film as "He Is David".

The book from which it came is based on real circumstances but not a specific person. It is just fantastical enough to move things along and make a more enjoyable picture while mostly staying firmly rooted in realistic possibility... a true story-driven movie that remains clean enough to be enjoyed by all ages and still deeply move you!! And the cinematography is just beautiful in parts; this is one I wish we could have seen in the theater (I didn't hear about it until after it was on DVD)! There are also some nice special features on the disk about the background and the story.
