Wellington Regent Theater movie of the week: The ShackMarch 17, 2017 Cueball
This week at the Regent Theater: “The Shack”
Schedule: Friday, 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, 2 and 7 p.m.
Feature film rating: PG-13 (for thematic material including some violence).
Time: 2 hours, 12 minutes
Movie Synopsis: Based on the New York Times best-selling novel, The Shack takes us on a father’s uplifting spiritual journey. After suffering a family tragedy, Mack Phillips [Sam Worthington] spirals into a deep depression causing him to question his innermost beliefs. Facing a crisis of faith, he receives a mysterious letter urging him to an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Despite his doubts, Mack journeys to the shack and encounters an enigmatic trio of strangers led by a woman named Papa [Octavia Spencer]. Through this meeting, Mack finds important truths that will transform his understanding of his tragedy and change his life forever.
Critic’s consensus: The Shack‘s undeniably worthy message is ill-served by a script that confuses spiritual uplift with melodramatic clichés and heavy-handed sermonizing.
