Joshua is a film about a man who wanders into a town. He rents a barn and works out of it for his woodcarving shop. He performs miracles that no ordinary man could do, shows the towns people that God loves them, which makes Father Tordone suspicious. There is a very obvious parallel between Joshua and Jesus. Many of the miracles and actions Joshua performs are the same as those done by Jesus. Such as when a con men set up a Tent Revival, Joshua tells him he doesn't have to con people. This is similar to Jesus and the Pharisees. Pharisees were strict observers of laws and rules, but Jesus thought differently, he preached love. Where he sought sinners out rather than scorn them. The film seems to show that Joshua is a messiah. Especially as in the Bible, one key part of being a messiah is to rebuild Solomon's Temple. In the film it seems to be symbolized when Joshua rebuilds a Baptist Church destroyed in a storm. Joshua also performs miracles like making the blind see, and rai…
Sans four letter words and violence, this movie is enjoyable family entertainment. Its message is not only "Christian" in nature, but also reflects back to those times in the first half of the twentieth century when we were able to walk the streets in safety, never lock our doors, and actually know our next door neighbor and the entire neighborhood for that matter. While it is predictable, the movie still holds one’s interest from beginning to end. Don’t look for the technical flubs or the adaptation of Joseph Girzone’s book, and don’t scoff at the ecumenicism, because the movie stands on its own. It is only based on the book and was scripted well. Just enjoy the sense of community and love. Tony Goldwyn is commendable in the role of Joshua and Academy Award Winner F Murray Abraham is notable as the skeptical and fear driven parish priest. The characters forming the community of Auburn display those neighborly times spoken of earlier in this review. Academy Award Nom…
This was a great movie. There are few movies that a person feels good after watching. This is one of them. Its not really about the second coming of Jesus. Its more about what would Jesus be like if he was here and hanging out with us in every day life. Most family movies are nice to see but the plots are weak and the acting is even worse. This movie had a decent plot. The acting was amazing. Everything came together great. One of my favorite movies, I can watch it over and over. I would love to go visit the location of the workshop in the movie but the shoot locations only show LA and Chicago. I don't know where the scenes were shot.
