The shack was a truly spiritual movie. When you go and see it, you will understand what I mean. I have only found one other movie to be like this. It is the TV movie called The Five People You Meet in Heaven. Like the Shack, the movie is based on a book. A book that is by Mitch Albom and I have read a couple of his books. As for the Shack, the movie wasn't really that different from the book. A book that was written by William P. Young.
Mack Philips in the movie is a man with a troubled past involving an abusive father. He's also a man with a wife and is a good father to his three children. Then on a camping trip with them, his younger daughter is taken and murdered. After that, he finds it hard to move forward with his life. Before this, he was a church going man and I guess he believed in those things you would connect to the church and just faith in general. He's questioning those things. Then he gets a letter requesting that he goes back to the shack.
What happens there resolves his crisis of faith and in fact restores his faith. He also learns important lessons there like what happened in The Five People You Meet in Heaven. The people at the shack's identities connect with his crisis of faith in a surprising way. These people's identities just help make the plot work very well and be very good. Another thing you will understand when you see the movie.
It's just very cool as well when it comes to the way they are connected to his crisis. Another significant thing in the film is a story featuring a waterfall that is used to remember someone. The movie tag line: You’re Never As Alone As You Think is proven by several statements made in the film. The point is actually quite a deep one, then what the tag line initially suggests. The book itself has managed to be number one on the USA Today bestseller list. If the movie has any of that kind of luck in theaters it will have be quite a hit in theaters.
