I was supposed to review this movie before now. ahem. Life got, well I don't know what, it just got away from me!
This was a sweet movie about the power of forgiveness, trust, faith, and love. We enjoyed watching this movie as a family and will watch it again. It wasn't an in your face movie but a gentle weaving of lives. We so enjoyed John Ratzenberger. He brought this character to life and made a cranky old guy not only lovable but relate-able. There was actually a twist that I didn't predict when the story line took a different direction with a character than I thought they would. I liked it! You might have a hanky ready in a few spots. Just a warning! lol
About the Movie:
Matthew Stevenson is a troubled kid from a broken home. When he vandalizes the local church to get back at his parents, Matthew has to repair the damage to the church to avoid criminal charges. While working at the church, he meets Ernest (John Ratzenberger), an accomplished wood carver who created the intricate woodwork decoration that Matthew destroyed. Ernest has become something of a hermit, but reluctantly comes out of reclusion to help repair the church. Now Ernest and Matthew must work together to preserve the church's beautiful antiquity, and along the way, they also manage to restore their faith in God and in life.
