A Hidden Life


I FINALLY saw it:  A Hidden Life.  What words are there to say?  I am forever changed by this movie.  I cannot imagine what the non-Christian sees when he watches this film, but anyone who has the Faith cannot help but be deeply and terribly moved.  During my particular viewing, when the film came to an end, absolutely no one moved from their seats.  You could hear a pin drop.  And the tears falling.  I was shaking for a long time afterwards.

I do not want to spoil this movie for anyone who has not seen it, so I will make my comments brief.  I had been wanting to see A Hidden Life for months, and finally got the chance.  I am so glad I did.  I have read many reviews of this movie:  not one of them has done it justice.  And again, if you are not a Christian, chances are you won't even understand.

The Christian life is about redemption, loyalty, faith -- and suffering.  Jesus said to pick up our cross and follow Him.  I have never seen that illustrated anywhere as majestically and profoundly as in this movie.  SEE IT.  You won't regret it.
