Product Description

Amazon.ca

The world can be divided into two camps: those who will watch Joshua reverently and gratefully, and those who will not touch it with a 10-foot pole. The reverent probably own Joseph F. Girzone's bestselling novel about a mysterious but friendly loner who shows up in a small American town and blesses every life he touches. Whites and blacks, Catholics, Protestants, and Jews will work side by side as newly recognized brethren; an estranged couple will resolve to save their marriage; the lonely and disconnected will embrace and be embraced by community; etc. The message--the healing power of Christ's love--is beyond reproach, the intentions of the filmmakers entirely benign, but there is not one whit of dramatic tension or narrative complication to any of it. The cast is stronger than usual in such religious projects (Tony Goldwyn, Oscar® winner F. Murray Abraham, Giancarlo Giannini as the Pope), but no one has a prayer with a script that posits the hero's Christhood on the fact that 12 people show up for his going-away dinner. --Richard T. Jameson

Format: DVD
"Joshua," based on Joseph F. Girzone's novel, is not about the Second Coming of Christ. In fact I would think that it is not about a second coming either, because I get the feeling from this film that Jesus has shown up in similar ways countless times before. This time a stranger named Joshua (Tony Goldwyn) shows up in the quiet town of Auburn. He moves into a dilapidated old barn on the outside of town and when he finds a Baptist church that was destroyed in a storm, he starts working on fixing it up. This seems odd to the members of the congregation of that church, but some of them start to pitch in and help Joshua.
There are no real surprises in "Joshua," especially since the opening credits tell us that Giancarlo Giannini plays the Pope in the movie we are about to see. But the point of the story here is not to tell you anything you do not already know. The message, when Joshua actually articulates one, is the one that has been around for almost two thousand years. So the attraction here is the enticing "what if?" as to what it would be like if Jesus suddenly showed up in your neck of the woods and started doing things and talking to people. Joshua does not preach series nor does he tell parables. The important thing here is that when you talk, he listens to you.
This is not the first time that a movie has tried to portray a more "realistic" type of Jesus. There was Jeffrey Hunter in the 1961 film "King of Kings," where Jesus walked among the masses while he gave the Sermon on the Mount. In "The Passion of the Christ" the focus on the story is on the scourging and crucifixion of Jesus, but in the film's few flashbacks James Caviezel reveals a remarkably accessible figure.

As my wife and I sat down to watch this movie, we jokingly said, "Well at least we won't be hearing the F word every other sentence, there won't be any gratuitous sex scenes, or violence and gore." Instead, JOSHUA gave us both an exceptionally inspirational evening.
Director Jon Purdy knowing he wasn't going to be filming a shoot em up or even a hells a fire movie, relies instead on the simply beautiful story of a young man named Joshua who comes into the little town of Auburn and gives the religious people there a sense of community and belonging. In spite of the stereotypical hardhearted priest, Joshua bonds with the assistant pastor, and all the people in the town, regardless of their denominational preference. He helps rebuild a Baptist church; he goes to a Christian rock concert, and ultimately he has an audience with the Pope.
I can't praise this movie enough for the sense of love and acceptance it portrays. Tony Goldwyn gives his most effectively controlled performance of a stellar career; evoking the soft masculinity of a carpenter and the embodiment of friend and brothere, Goldwyn is perfectly cast. His final scenes with F. Murray Abraham and Giancarlo Giannini as the Pope are delivered with such quiet intensity, their impact is boundless.
Abraham is wonderful in a thankless role; his moment of epiphany, though sudden and brief, is awesomely presented. Kirk Fuller as Father Pat is the movie's comic balance, but there is a warmth and understanding in his performance that makes him all the more believable.
This movie made us feel good; it made us think; and its power of faith and love was inspirational. We loved this movie and thank Purdy and his crew for bringing us such a warm and simple affirmation of what's good in the world.

This movie changed me in such a powerful way, I'm ordering it 4 all of my family members and friends.
While watching this, I related 2 the girl who came on to Joshua and regarded my life as "broken" as her life was. I asked the Lord 2 take ALL of the hatefulness and bitterness out of my heart, and he did immediately. If you, or someone you love has unresolved issues, give this movie 2 heal your broken heart. You can feel the holy spirit of the Lord while experiencing this life-changing and enhancing movie. I wished mainstream television would air movies and shows like this and "Joan of Arcadia" that help heal us.

I have watched this movie well over 50 times, though i dont beleive in the church i do beleive in god, this movie i have recommended to others in need weather it be for emotional support or physical pain, it is uplifting, and beautiful. I truely beleive that the actors in this movie at the making were guided by the hand of God, This is a MUST SEE MOVIE....if not a must own movie, one of the nicest aspects of it was all ages can watch it, and get something out of it

This movie protrays Joshua as a christ - like man, who walks among us in this day and time! Not having read the book -I can not vouch for continuity between the two, but I can tell you this the Secular responses written here by those "claiming" the true Gospel and that this movie does not exemplify the "true teachings" of the Bible they have severely missed the point of this movie! Joshua is about what could be a better place if we learn to accept our neighbors as they are - whether they be Baptist, Catholic, Jewish, Methodist, or any other religious faction in this world that believes in a one God! That we need to look to our neighboirs to find ourselves and our hearts! Love begins at home and home is where we live at - Home - town - Church - school! This where we live at not in the past of the written pages of the Bible - the world has changed but the basic principles of the Bible are to love one another for who we are - we are human beings derived from the image of God! We are not without fault and neither was Jesus - Jesus was a Human Man - being like the rest of us - He was born and He died like us - with one exception his Father was God - but if you read the bible
then you will know that God is our father too! So I am saying that this movie simply projects the basic premise of the Bible and leaves it up to you to seek your own Truth from the written word - of God! For all that seem to proclaim this as Blasphemous are themselves Blasphemers for God said do not Judge others for in Judging others you Judge yourself!! So did I like this Movie yes - I did, were there problems with the movie of course - but what you know do we know about Christ in his private times with the Disciples? not much - did he joke with them, or cry with them, was he always serious with them about his father?
