    We are just back from watching Worlds Apart. We all thought that this is the best, most accurate movie on this topic that we have ever seen. I hope to post more on it once I've gotten some rest. Several of us here in NYC went so some others may also want to share their thoughts.

    I was very surprised how accurately the witnesses were portrayed. The movie didn't shy away from the emotional toll the dictates of the watchtower has on it's members. From a outsiders perspective, it show the absurdness of the flip-flops on a personal level. Interestingly, we met a group of young witnesses and encouraged them to research their own faith.

    I fill in more details later.

    I have posted before and mentioned the impact of the movie over her in scandanavia, it might be of interest to you guys to think about presenting the movie in a positive light to any who you know who are still in. Explain that the movie is very true to the way witnesses live and is not condemning. It may just be what will get many young ones to go and see it.

    It also explains in a touching and interesting way nearly everyone of the problems with WT doctrine. The non JW will enjoy this film and come away with a better understanding of JW thinking. I believe that this is important since many people do not know how damaging this religion can be until a family member is already sucked in.

    I found the movie to be a real eye opener,especially for those just accustomed to those familiar with JW's knocking on their doors on a Sat/Sun morning,and not knowing the true mindset of this sect. Emotional reactions could be heard in the audience, probably of those who can relate firsthand to the theme of the movie. Reminds me somewhat of reactions heard at the viewing of the "Passion" movie. For me it was a nice " dessert" after the delicious meal we all received at the Thai restaurant. Real nice evening!!

    Thank you for your comments! I hope it comes to Phoenix, AZ. I will encourage our Meetup group to go.

    The movie rocked!!!! Very accurate portrayal of JWs, with very few slight inaccuracies...

    It was interesting that a large contingent of JWs went to see the movie, and we exJWs were able to converse with them. Even though they knew some of us were Dfd, they still were willing to listen to our dialogue. It's hard to shun someone after seeing that movie, since the negative consequences of shunning are so powerfully displayed.

    BTW little chicken, do brothers in Scandinavia wear beards? Is that OK there?

    This sounds like a good movie to see. I have no information on it at all. Is it available in Canada? Is it in English.
