I've never heard a wife call her husband Pastor so many times in my life....it became very unbelievable to hear two pastor wives referencing their husbands as "Pastor" to each other instead of their first name or "my husband". That was painful and so very off putting. . The plot had a lot of holes, no real follow through on the neighbors history or potential mental issue. I was expecting the neighbor to turn out to be someone the "Pastor" had known when he was a kid and hadn't treated right or perhaps saw signs of abuse and didn't report it to an adult. The neighbor was painted as a recluse but suddenly comes to the door and stops by the couples home many times...that seemed abrupt. The actor that played the neighbor was hands down the best in the movie, letting his gaze linger too long and other non verbals that show something wasn't right. The ending seemed quite abrupt and didn't really resonate with a clear message. The beginning aerial shots were very nice and had a big picture feel. I feel this is a stepping stone to something greater. Overall - The director needs to focus his talents on directing because that is where his talents are - the writing needs to be done by someone talented in that area. Movies can contain a positive or Christian message and still be relevant to non church communities. The writing can make that happen successfully.
