Movie Review: Letters from God

Over our campground holiday, we managed to fit in a lovely movie that was sent to me called Letters to God.

The synopsis reads:

Tyler Doherty is an extraordinary eight-year-old boy armed with strong faith and courage as he faces his daily battle against cancer.  Surrounded by a loving family and community, Tyler’s prayers take the form of letters he sends to his ultimate pen pal, God, on a daily basis.  These letters find their way into the hands of Tyler’s postman, Brady, who is at a crossroads in his life searching for meaning. Brady at first is confused over what to do, but his decision ultimately is a testament to the power of Tyler’s shining spirit, bravery and grace. Inspired by a true story, Letters to God delivers a message of hope, faith and courage that others can apply to their own personal struggles regardless of what they may face in their everyday lives.

See the trailer below before reading our impressions:

Impressions: Movie was filmed well with excellent actors. I was a little unsure of the audience – children or grown-ups or both? Of course, I loved the message and the positive ending resulting from a tragic circumstance. I believe that God works amazing miracles through tragedy so I was blessed to watch this story in film. I do think there is definitely a place for evangelical films showing the hand of God in our lives and I think this reaches people of many different backgrounds, but I was also unsure if it was something I would be more likely to watch in a church and invite friends to it there than in the movie theater.

It definitely got some rave reviews on Yahoo Movies!
