Well...

1. There's a spontaneously growing tree in the middle of a beautiful garden.

2. Someone said: "He's having a hard time believing this is real."

3. There's two men running on water.

Therefore, if someone has never read or heard of the book, then how are they suppose to know that those things depict a 'religiously' themed movie?

None of those things are Sci FI tropes. They could indicate many different genres. Plus, the general description of the movie didn't indicate Sci fi.

Hmmm. So what did the general description of this movie indicate?

Hmmm. For some reason, this seems like a sensitive subject for some, and perhaps I should have only said "yes" to bobisinthehouse's thread title question.

Probably another case of the book is better than the movie. I tend not to see movie versions of books I've read as you just compare everything throughout... distracts a bit too much.


I'm as religious as a shoe, the book I enjoyed, the movie I doubt would hold water.
