My Favorite Movie The Schack

Categories: Movie

The Schack is a Christian drama based on the novel of William P. Young.

The Shack is my favorite movie ever, it tells the story of a heartbroken father called Mack Phillip which had an abusive father. During a camping trip with his three children, his older children fall accidentally into the river from their canoe. While he is rescuing them, Missy his youngest daughter is kidnapped, and later considered dead for the police. Months later, Mack receives an invitation in his mailbox to spend a time with ‘Papa’ which is the nickname use by his wife and his children for God.

At first Mack thought it was simply a sick joke after he decides to accept the invitation and to return to the shack. At the moment he arrives at the shack he meets God in the form of three persons: Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the Father, or Papa. Through his time with the Trinity, Mack finds important truths that will transform his understanding of his tragedy and change his life forever.

The movie was filmed at Sunnyside campground in Cultus Lake, British Columbia, and also there are another scenes filmed at Multnomah Falls, the Oregon. The main character is Mackenzie Allen Phillips, a father of three called ‘Mack’ by his family and friends interpreted by the actor Sam Worthington.

I loved the whole movie, but one of the scenes that most impacted me was the judgment scene. Mack judged what he could see, but Wisdom showed him some of what he could not see (like the fact that his father had been abused as a boy).

Then Mack was asked to judge between his two kids, and he felt unable to do it. It gave me an idea of God’s love for his children and the pain he must feel as we choose to walk with the evil. This scene also showed me, how human beings judge the bad actions of other people for any reasons. However, we do not know the problems or the suffering of anyone. That’s why we have no right to judge anyone because we are human, and we all make mistakes.

Another of my favorite scene in the movie is at the end. Mack is in the hospital, he meets his family again. Mack has a private conversation with his older daughter, Kate who has been fighting with guilt and anger since her little sister’s death. Mack told her “I am only beginning this journey, this journey of faith and forgiveness. I cannot do it alone, I hope you can do it with me”. I remembered that I started to cry, it was a very emotional scene to me. Because finally father and daughter embraced, and they freed themselves from the guilt.

In conclusion the film brings the amazing message that forgiveness liberates you, it sets you free.

I recommend this movie even for people who do not have religion.
