I have to admit that I had no idea that Sam Worthington has the acting chops that he proved to have in this movie! I found the movie to be uplifting and inspirational and very earthy in dealing with some dark topics. It walked me through a path of forgiveness and grieving and how to get to the other side using my brain in a way that I don't think I processed before. This really is a very entertaining and fun way to show how to get there in a very compassionate way. It's just a really good movie with a lot of really great messages. I'm going to go see it again. I hope everyone sees it at least once
