I don’t intend to make movie reviews a staple of this blog, but I wanted to put in a plug for this film that just opened in theaters last Friday. I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected to.
I was worried it might be really cheesy and sugarcoated or poorly filmed or dead boring. It was none of these. I was engaged and even entertained throughout, and the filming was all very professional and seamless. The only thing I can really complain about is the narrator was perhaps too perky.
The film doesn’t try to preach or defend any particular points of doctrine or church policy. It’s a documentary about the lives and experiences of six people who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
I’m glad this was a film that I can highly recommend. But then, I’m a Mormon. What I really want is to know what other people think of Meet the Mormons.
