Conversations With God
Source: Catholic News Service
Drama based on the successful series of spiritual self-help books by author Neale Donald Walsch (Henry Czerny), who, after losing his job and finding himself homeless, alleges that God, prompted by his questioning, began speaking to him directly, with their ongoing "conversation" resulting in his best-sellers. Earnestly directed by Stephen Simon, the film fluctuates between maudlin and genuinely moving, and while clearly containing ideas (a hodgepodge of gnosticism, pantheism and New Age mysticism) incompatible with Christian theology, nevertheless imparts a sincere message about God's unconditional love and abiding presence that should resonate with Catholic viewers. Questionable theological underpinnings, some mature themes and brief mild innuendo. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
