Turner makes even a Prophet's life interesting. This is a well produced, and attention grabbing film that shouldn't be overlooked.

Jeremiah has historically been my favorite Old Testament book in the bible. From his questions of God in Chapter 12, to his extreme sacrificial love for his nation, Jeremiah is still a captivating and inspiring prophet of the Lord.
This movie brings out so much of the emotion in his life, as he prepares to offer his first sacrifice before Jehovah in Jerusalem, and asks for the hand of his girlfriend in marriage. The drama is swiftly interrupted by the active pursuit of him by our God, and his eventual acceptance of God's call on his life. It brings to life the scriptures, and I learned a lot I never understood about him and his ministry prior to seeing this film.
At first I was alarmed with the portrayal of God in the film, but with time I understood what the filmmakers were trying to say. After all, it is the children and the elderly whom God acted to protect most of all in his judgment of the nation of Israel at the time.
There is some violence in the movie, and those with sensitive children should probably watch it prior to allowing the children to see it. In reality, no one can read the book of Jeremiah without understanding that much of his life was lived violently.
All in all, the actors do a tremendous job of bringing the time period - and Jeremiah - to life.
