I am drawn to movies about other cultures. When my friend Philip posted the preview about this movie it instantly grabbed my attention. I have enjoyed much of the entertainment industry that has come out of Japan – movies, animation, video games. Here was a movie about missionaries to Japan, I couldn’t pass up seeing it in theatres despite only an evening showing available in my area.
Note: To those reading my reviews for the first time, my Overall and Summary sections are spoiler free. There is a break with a picture, after that spoilers are fair game.
Rated: Rated R for some disturbing violent content
Released: December 2016
