Storyline

When things are not going well for John Taylor, he reads his journal and reflects on his missionary life and his companion Elder Alma Johnson. They try to teach people about the gospel and want to give lessons, but the people are not interested. They do teach a lady named Melissa, but does not think she can be baptized. The other missionaries try to make life bearable by having fun and living together. Finally, Melissa learns the lessons of the gospel and knows the church is true and gets baptized.

Worth seeing
3 June 2004 | by martincorbSee all my reviews

I thought that this was a very good film. I felt that it quite accurately reflected LDS missionary life, better in my opinion than the films 'God's Army' and 'The Best Two Years' do, though they are both excellent films. I believe that this film is good at showing how missionaries interact with each other and their investigators and also captures the highs and lows of missionary life quite well, in a positive yet realistic way.

It is also another good example of a film that has wholesome values at its core, and thus the assurance that it does not contain any nudity or swearing.

My criticisms of the film were that the acting was a bit amateurish (though not unbearably so), and the sound quality was poor. In many instances it sounded as though the voices were dubbed, which I felt let the film down.

Overall, however, I enjoyed this film and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys LDS Missionary themed films.
