It was a very good film but not fully what I was expecting. A JW could even watch it, I don't think the title fit the movie. There was absolutely nothing about apostasy, nor do I recall the word even being mentioned.
The bad: I think the title might keep JW's from watching it which is a shame since nothing in the film is directly about what JW's consider apostasy. It could almost be a film that the WT would approve to watch lol. I was thinking the film was going to be about somebody who accepted a blood transfusion, or who was disfellowshipped for apostasy and showing them come to a realization that what they were taught and told as not being the truth, questioning or not believing in the governing body, etc. Somebody who felt guilty of how the organization was running or lost faith in the governing body, not kicked out for sin, etc, those who meet the WT definition of apostates. Instead it showed how somebody died for the no blood stance and another disfellowshipped for fornication. The reason for fornication was not explored, whether she was a true believer but got weak or she no longer believed it was the truth and didn't care. The film then showed the struggles and shunning required for that and the vagueness and coldness by elders for those who try to return or them instructing family to shun them. The disfellowshipped girl feels the elders and everything is becoming unreasonable. It does not go beyond that. She never researched, finds anything, or in the bible argues JW teachings are contrary, etc. So that's why I don't think the title was good.
I also think the death for not taking blood scene might be confusing to non jws because early in the movie they show the girl turning in her blood card and having been cautioned she could die from her condition.Then far later it shows her fainting and then a funeral. If an outsider forgot or didn't pay attention to her having a blood card to not take it, they may think she merely died. I think it could have been stronger and helping explain more by showing her in the hospital and a doctor is saying that she will live if she gets a blood transfusion and she either is conscious enough to refuse blood or her mother refuses it for her and either her or her family refusing it. This movie will probably more help bible studies and non jw's than existing jw's since it showed the life of a typical disfellowshipping in jw households but nothing to really challenge the beliefs. But since JW's try to teach that they don't breakup families and no matter what normal family interactions continue if one is excommunicated, this shows bible studies how that is a blatant lie.
It did a great job of showing what JW life is like. It was shot in an actual kingdomhall! Most of the actors really did well acting like JW's, you would think they all had been ex jw's to pull it off. It exposes the lie that JW's do not break up families as claimed on jw.org faq on shunning family members.
