A Good Movie

Marty and I have found that we prefer independent movies over box office movies, in general.
This last week, over the course of several evenings, we were hauntingly delighted as we worked our way through a Russian movie "The Island." We labored through the main character's endless and numerous trudges to get coal but found that "just around every corner" was another deeply insightful portrayal of mercy, forgiveness, insanity, compassion and hope.

This is a very moving and gripping story and I would recommend it highly to anyone who has despaired of their sin or has struggled to understand those who have.

This movie showed up while I was learning about the old eastern church and helped through difficult days. It's all true.
