Life as a Mormon missionary isn't what 19-year-old Brandon Allen expected: so many rules and so few successes. Los Angeles is as unrepentant as Sodom and Gomorrah. He's forced to share a small apartment with five young prank-loving missionaries and, to top it off, his first companion, 29-year-old Marcus Dalton, proves to be a harsh mentor. After only one day as a missionary, Allen is ready to hang up his necktie and go home. Allen becomes a part of the drama occurring under the everyday surface of missionary life. After only a few intense days, Allen finds faith he didn't know he had, and courage he didn't know he lacked. He learns that the time has come to put away childish things, and to become more than just a man--to become a man of God.

Trevor H (ag) wrote: A deeply disturbing film that explores the abuse of women. John Malkovich plays Professor David Lurie who is dismissed from his university post after taking advantage of a female student. There is always the underlying feeling that although she participates, she is unwilling. After his dismissal, Lurie visits his daughter Lucy, played by Jessica Haines, who is subject to a vicious rape and inseminartion by three black boys. Lurie is furious at the abuse suffered by his daughter, but fails to link it to the abuse to which he subject his pupil Melanie (played by Antoinette Engel). As a backdrop, the film explores the state of South Africa, suggesting that since the abolition of apartheid, the country has gone to rack and ruin. So many white South Africans today feel dispossessed. The part that was shot in South Africa is beautifully photographed, and the desolation of the country certainly comes through. In summary, a very fine film.

Michael F (es) wrote: This movie only gets four stars for Michael Keaton's performance. The story and lame supporting cast (not the actors themselves but the shitty amount of time given to their character development) are good but not great and theirs really noting all that new here. But Keaton's performance is outstanding and definitely the driving force of the movie.

Alex S (nl) wrote: Oh Gary Cooper, you really are the inferior Frank Capra protagonist. You're not helped along by a mawkish, solemn, sentimental script in which indeed every scene seems to end in a sermon (and not even a good one: "be nice to your neighbor" come on now). Man this would be so much better as a comedic satire a la Preston Sturges or Billy Wilder and focusing on Barbara Stanwyck's hardboiled reporter character (who unconvincingly becomes the histroinic fainting type, because it's BARBARA STANWYCK and she don't faint).
