After suffering a family tragedy, Mack Phillips [Sam Worthington] spirals into a deep depression causing him to question his innermost beliefs. Facing a crisis of faith, he receives a mysterious letter urging him to an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Despite his doubts, Mack journeys to the shack and encounters an enigmatic trio of strangers led by a woman named Papa [Octavia Spencer]. Through this meeting, Mack finds important truths that will transform his understanding of his tragedy and change his life forever.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: As the film passes the two-hour mark, it begins to feel as if it's treading water. People of faith already know that there are no cut-and-dried answers to the kinds of questions Mack is asking. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Mar 2, 2017

Rotten: It's one of those movies where you'll either decide to give in right away and sob for two hours straight or opt to fight it while your resentment slowly simmers to a rolling boil. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Mar 3, 2017

Rotten: A Hallmark-card therapy session, a kind of woodland weekend-retreat self-actualization seminar hosted by the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. – Owen Gleiberman, Variety, Mar 2, 2017

Rotten: Even its jolts of surrealism feel curiously stilted; what it needed was a director whose reverence would be tempered by a healthy sense of the ludicrous, an ability to tap into and draw out the material's stranger undercurrents. – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times, Mar 2, 2017

A Worthy Film

It seems that most films these days are created to advance political or social agendas. It’s encouraging to see such a worthy film which focuses on each individual’s relationship with God.


Great movie

Don’t believe the critics.

Great movie, I’m going to see it again. Great Christian movie, the message is great. Proof again critics do not know what they’re talking about.
