Re: Who's going to watch the movie

I'm not one to see a movie more than once, but I'd watch this over and over and over. And I couldn't agree more. Seen it 3 times already and I could go another 3...easy! :D Well hello Vernie-Pooh, I remember you too...sort of. I recognize the name but am still trying to piece people and their stori...

Re: Your Questions Here - FAQ answers needed

Another thought crossed my mind just now. Remember Mack telling Missy about the Indian princess who saved her tribe from a terrible plague? The princess was the daughter of, of course, an indian chief. So perhaps in the film they wanted Missy as representative of the princess and Graham Green being...

Re: Your Questions Here - FAQ answers needed

I loved the way that Graham Green portrayed Papa. So Carl, given that Graham is Native American, why do you think this is? I think it is to show that God or the Trinity for that fact, are not a white Gandalf stereotypical characters. If you think about the Godhead depicted in the movie...Female Papa...

Re: Your Questions Here - FAQ answers needed

While the actor in the film is Graham Green who is Native American, the book makes no distiction as to whether Papa, the male Papa, is of any particular nationality. I loved Graham Green's portrayal of Papa. Any thoughts Carl on why you think they chose a Native American to play the male Papa? Do y...

Re: Who's going to watch the movie

I agree with you. Of course at my age, leaving this world wouldn't be a difficult decision for me. LOL!!! However, that said, I believe Mack made his choice to keep his family from suffering any further "great sorrow" that would occur as a result of his death. He know Missy would be there and one d...

Re: Who's going to watch the movie

So I am good for 3...3 times seeing the movie in one week and am open to going a 4th time if someone is looking for someone to go with. This is getting to be very expensive...lol. Every person I come across (I work at a very large school) I tell them about the movie and encourage them to see it. Eac...

Re: Your Questions Here - FAQ answers needed

Having not re-read the book, is the male Papa in the book a first nations individual as it was in the movie? Any thoughts as to why Papa is depicted as an aboriginal male? This is not posted as a racially based question, just a curious one.
