    The Letter Writer movie has a message that EVERYONE should follow. I hope this movie was real life. We need more caring people, compassionate people, loving people in our lives to address make the toils of mortality. I hope the young lady who wrote the film review reconsiders her comments. This movie should be hailed as a KEEPSAKE. Wish it would have been nominated for an Academy Award. GREAT MOVIE!!

    It is so very unfortunate that in a world that desperately needs the light of kindness and optimism, it seems that sometimes even those Christian journalists who should be focusing on endorsing those characteristics seem to feel that in order for their work to be reputable, they have to demonstrate cynicism. Of all people in the world, LDS should believe that finding Christ's light in ourselves and experiencing the power of God fanning the spark of goodness in others into a roaring blaze IS POSSIBLE. Not only is it possible, but it is to be pursued. And if anything is capable of completely changing someone's life, it is that all-encompassing inferno. Of course this movie is realistic! Of course it can be experienced by ALL of us! God has promised that we can feel this flame if we just let the little seed, that little spark of hope and faith, bloom within us. If this movie seems implausible to you, please reassess what is going on in your own heart and please, please make sure that you are open to the possibility that God really can change lives, even through a simple letter to an unknown teenager.

    Its a movie and not necessarily representative of real life; its about the potential we all within us. Regardless of our personal problems we can always take time to uplift/help another while we are on our own life's journey.
