Loved, loved, loved this movie
Love Comes Softly This is a wonderful movie about loss, love and faith. It has become my absolute favorite movie…for now at least. The little girl Missie is such a doll and perfect for her role.
The movie has a bit of “Little House on the Prairie” feel to it but has a lot of it’s own appeal. All of my friends love this sweet movie, too. Just shows Hollywood that not all of us are into the s_x, blood and gore of most movies out there. Most of us adore the more faith-based, clean, wholesome movies.
My favorite part that makes me cry every time is when Marty is swinging on the homemade rope swing and is crying and crying over the loss of her husband…awe, just too sweet. And then when Marty walks in on Missy crying over her mothers death and confronts Marty, oh, my heart just breaks.
This is a movie that the whole family can watch together.
Wonderful Movie! (Now read the Book!)
I was really looking forward to seeing this movie since I have read the book…twice! I love Janette Oke novels! The “Love Comes Softly” novel is part of a series, so you can continue on with Missie’s life, etc.
Sometimes a movie just doesn’t do justice to the book, but this one does!!! I was not disappointed at all! The heartbreak and grief that losing a loved one brings is revealed very well in this film. Best of all, the film shows how sometimes a marriage of convenience or out of necessity can be a real blessing. It teaches all of us who live in this day and age that love does not always start off with bursting fireworks or burning passion. As the film portrays…sometimes love just comes softly. 🙂
To the actors Dale Midkiff, Katherine Heigl, Skye McCole Bartusiak and to Director/Producer Michael Landon, Jr… Great job!!!
