5.0 out of 5 stars Stand Out Performance by Amy Acker, Refreshingly Respectful Portrayal of Catholic Church Dec 14 2008
By K. Hughes - Published on Amazon.com
Alan Arkin and Frank Langella turn in their customary excellent performances in this Catholic coming-of-age dramady about a young man who isn't sure whether he wants to be a priest or a husband, but the real movie grace is wielded by Amy Acker (Angel, Alias) as the love interest whose sweetness isn't a byproduct of weakness but a sign of inner strength, one who doesn't fuss because she knows exactly what she needs to do and makes the necessary sacrifices to do it. She is what Joss Whedon calls a strong woman character.

The supporting characters, a large number of them priests, do not descend into stereotype. They display strong sides and not so strong sides, but their shortcomings are explored with understanding and empathy. (Spoiler Alert) Orson Bean, whom we first meet as a cranky old problem priest, turns out to be a man of large and frustrated passion. Having spent 25 years in Africa serving the destitute, he is ordered back home as he approaches retirement age and assigned presumably less strenuous work -- work that he clearly despises. It's a fascinating portrait of a man whose Christianity is stymied by the humane and well-intended decisions of his bureaucracy, and his subsequent path of self-destruction manages to be appalling, hilarious and heartrending.

And Amy Acker transcends it all.

5.0 out of 5 stars The World Needs More Stories Like This! Feb. 6 2009
By Jimmy H. - Published on Amazon.com
Despite the unoriginal title, Crossroads is a unique story of a young man's struggles with life's paradoxes. It charmingly tells a story of his choices and his exposure to many orginal characters that develop and influence his decision making. The acting is genuine from a mixed cast of journeyman thespians and rising stars. Its a wholesome film that leaves the viewer satisfied. Its salubrious. The world needs more stories like this. Bravo!

1.0 out of 5 stars Crossroads to a Bad Detour Sept. 19 2013
By Shay V. Alexander - Published on Amazon.com
What a disappointment! This was categorized as a "Christian" movie, however, it WAS NOT! The language was foul and cheap with constant cursing. There was also some nudity at the beginning of the movie, exposing a young woman's breasts (which had no reason to been shown). I didn't care for the insults and lack of respect directed towards others. When I read about the movie, I thought it would be good to watch based upon this, however it failed. I don't care to hear cursing; I don't care to hear other foul words; I especially don't like seeing nudity which served no purpose, except for a young man's comments on the first thing he saw was "her breasts." I hate seeing stupid people play their parts in becoming even more stupid like Orson Bean, which was no surprise with him being a warped, frustrated, old man who when he opened his mouth the vulgarity flowed. STAY AWAY FROM WATCHING THIS MOVIE, AS IT'S A WOLF IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING!"
