I loved this movie!!! My father is Tongan and my mother is Samoan (the
first island Elder Groberg landed at the beginning of his journey).
Even though I was born and raised here in the US, I have been exposed
to my Polynesian roots and love and embrace both cultures of who I am
(Polynesian side and American side).
I have to say that my family and I LOVED this movie. It is refreshing
to watch a beautiful movie without all the sex, violence and vulgar
material that permeates our society today. This movie is about True
Love on so many levels - the love between Elder Groberg and his future
bride Jean, the love between the Tongan people and Elder Groberg and
the love between Our Lord and his children. No, I'm not Mormon, I'm
actually an Assembly of God Christian, however that does not overshadow
my appreciation for this movie.
The depiction of the people of Tonga is accurate. They are a
lighthearted and loving group of people who love to laugh and find joy
in the simple things of life. They are all about respect and honoring
one's family. The scene of the first funeral brought back memories for
me as it illustrated exactly how these kind people handle the departing
of a loved one. When my dear Grandmother Siu passed away in 1994, my
family and I traveled back to Vava'u (an island within the Kingdom of
Tonga) to lay her to rest. The unmasked grief and crying as depicted in
the movie was exactly how my grandmother's funeral was. The crying and
grieving took place for 1 full day (24 hours - day and night) while
different groups of people from all the villages on the island, came to
pay their last respects.
Hats off to Disney for going out on a limb to bring the story of one
young man's journey of faith and trials and tribulations of his mission
to the big screen! Well done!
