Saw it on Sunday. I have no idea why this film has gotten the hype among Catholics that it has. Barbara Nicolosi has a good post about the movie and the entirely unwarranted approbation it has received. There's not much to disagree with here. Films that are any good as art don't need e-mail campaigns to get people to see them. Catholics and others shouldn't drink the artistic Kool-Aid just because a film has a purportedly good message (which this film completely garbles, anyway). And if the producers tell you you are under "demonic influence" for not thinking their little project is very good (as they told Nicolosi), well, you know, screw 'em.

Update: A pretty good concurring review by a blogging nun here.
