I've been getting bombarded by recommendations to go see this movie from our parish, our teens youth group, the Knights of Columbus, newsletters from our Bishops, and several Catholic organizations. It opens today. Dh and I are hoping to go on a date this weekend (dinner and a movie -- woohoo!) to see it!
Secular critics have either slammed it or given it moderate kudos. Other (religious leaning) critics give it fairly high praise.
I'm curious as to where I will fall. It centers on religious freedoms -- a rather timely topic but work on the film began back at the end of 2008!
Let me know what you think if you go!
