"I really enjoyed watching such an inspiring film in a movie theatre. I loved getting to know the young Joseph and his life better."

"The film makes me want to read the scriptures."
"When I taught D&C 121 to my seminary class the next day, I was still deeply moved by the film, which gave the chapter a whole new meaning. This impression and the feeling of gratitude for the Prophet of the Restoration means a lot to me."

"I was very touched and felt the Holy Ghost."

"Excellent. A must-see film."

"It was wonderful to watch this film with my children and to get to know Joseph Smith more personally."
"I was very impressed with the sensitive manner with which the individual characters were portrayed, the excellent acting, the subtle humor in between scenes full of drama and the way deep emotion was conveyed."
"The movie strenghtened my testimony of the importance of revelation and of faith in the Lord no matter what happens. Emma showed that we don't have to see things to have faith in them and know they are true."

They were both favorably impressed which made it possible for me to bear my testimony the rest of the evening. They wanted to attend any addtional screenings. We discussed the individual scenes form the film. We all felt the director was fantastic."
