Overview

Tony Goldwyn stars in the uplifting family story Joshua. The film is presented in a decent looking 1.33:1 full frame transfer that sports solid colors and dark black levels. While the transfer for this film looks very presentable, there are a few minor imperfections including some dirt/grain and a small amount of pixilation. Otherwise this is a decent transfer that should please fans. The soundtrack is presented in both Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround as well as Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround, both in English. The main directional effects and surround sounds for this audio track come in the form of popular Christian artist Michael W. Smith's emotional film score. Otherwise, this is a mostly front heavy mix that features distortion free dialogue, effects and music. Joshua features a few supplemental materials, starting with a behind-the-scenes look at the film. This short featurette includes interviews with the cast, crew and author of the best-selling novel on which the film is based. Some production notes, cast and crew info, a theatrical trailer and TV teaser round out the special features on this disc.

    Great

    The movie was great, but could have followed the book a little closer. The book shows how all faiths have missed the message and needed a little reforming not just the Catholics.

    Watch this movie!

    My husband and I rented the movie without knowing anything about it. We enjoyed it so much that we watched it twice before returning it. I'm here to buy my own copy so I can invite others to come over and watch it with us.

    I thought it was a great movie.

    This movie was on showtime which usually shows nothing but trash. While searching thru channels I saw the title and it interested me. This was an uplifting good clean movie with a good message and what our kids need to see more of. I am on this websight to buy this movie.

    Joshua is great

    I loved this movie. It was very heart warming, especially where this Joshua shows Jesus love and thaws out the cold heart of the senior priest. I liked the sense of community that a truly warm hearted person can bring out in others.

    a really excellent movie

    I'm a professor of ancient history at a major state university, with many scholarly publications,and I'm Jewish, so you might not think I would have much to say about this movie--but I loved it! As far as I can tell, it accurately presents the Message of Jesus,--in the sense of God is Love--and does so in a very moving and convincing way. I ran into this film on cable by accident, and couldn't stop watching it. I've highly recommended it to my Catholic friends--and not only to Catholic friends. Just great.

    Excellent Movie

    My husband and I were in video rental store just browsing around and I came across this movie. I'd never heard of it and after we read the synopsis, decided to rent it. We are so happy we did!! If anything came close to depicting Jesus in modern day, this is it! Great job to all who were involved in the making of it. Thank you, thank you!!

    A Disappointed Fan

    I watched this movie twice; once as a fan of the original story and once as a critic. I cried at the end both times. But, the original book was much more ecumenical and better than the movie. It's amazing how a truly great story can be filtered with bigotry when converted to a movie. The original book deals with two ministers (a Catholic and a Protestant). Joshua carves a statue for each minister to help them return to His Way (without their own bigotry). Joshua is ecumenical, attending a different church/synagoge each week. The story stays in the town--no ''last supper,'' ''12'' diners, no trip to Rome. The original story is much more beautiful and more open to everyone--not just ministers. I hope Joshua's final statement is all views hold in their hearts after watching this video.
