Carol says: In reading a movie review site, the consensus was about 50-50 of people liking/disliking this movie . I am on the “like” list. Not that it is a great movie but it kept me entertained. Of course, in a few places they should have shortened the scene (a lot) but overall I enjoyed it.
For those of you who do not know, in the movie about 3% of the population downsize to become 5 inches tall. Okay, that sentence right there I know is a turn off to some people.
They downsize to help save the planet . I don’t want to tell you too much about the particulars of the movie because that might give too much away. let me say, after the movie I knew which of my friends would love it, and we would have long philosophical conversations over the movie, or those people who would just roll their eyes.
I think the movie has something to say while also being entertaining. And there are some very clever lines. It’s a more lighthearted movie with some thought to be given to it.
I think I forgot to send a review on this movie
All Saints is a 2017 American Christian drama film directed by Steve Gomer and written by Steve Armour.

It was released on August 25, 2017, by Affirm Films and Provident Films.
This movie is based on a true story and is very uplifting. My suggestion is everyone watch this. Since it is no longer in the theater you would have to rent it on Netflix or however you do it.
Carol Says:A pastor is sent to a church to close it up as they cannot afford the payments to keep the church. The pastor meets a group of Southeast Asians and they farm the land which enables them to keep the church. Well, that is the quick shorthand of what happened. But you really have to watch this movie to see how it all unfolds.
At the end of the movie they show pictures of the real people and what they are doing now. Also, the people on whose life this is based on are actually in the movie. And the movie is filmed at the actual church . So do yourself a favor and watch this movie.
