Brilliant movie!
19 August 2018 | by digiteumSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this film immensely and it told a very real story about Hollywood and how it can destroy people. Nothing wrong with a bit of fiction, but this story was more - you don't have to be an A-list star to move people and emotionally take them on a journey - I guess I am sentimental and I cried through parts of the film. It almost appears that non-Christians, atheists can have a field day knocking Christian movies - but there was much more than a religious film here - there was a person experiencing real problems due to the Paparazzi wanting a story at any cost. The ability to knock someone down and pin a rumor on them. This story managed to change the view of the Oscar winner, but in real life sometimes the truth doesn't come out at all. Well worth watching!
