Jess and I love our date nights. This is a movie we hope to see soon. New Testament scholar Ben Witherington gives a short review of the film. Below is an excerpt from his review. You can also check out the trailer here.
I have to tell you that Brad Pitt should certainly win an Oscar, and Cate Blanchett is marvelous as well. This is a very watchable movie, even if you are only watching them. But the movie is so much more than a star turn. And like in any good movie the cameo appearances and minor characters are interesting in and of themselves. The photography is grand, the sweep of the story is grand, there is tragedy and triumph.
