    This is a great movie with incredible acting as well as a real life story about a woman who struggles with her religious beliefs. vera Farmiga\'s directorial debut is oscar worthy.

    To me this is a very depressing movie. On moment it is talking about religion and Jesus and the next violence. I guess if you are a \"Born again, whatever,\" you will like it. I walked out. If you pay, keep your receite.
