Atom User Reviews for Emanuel
It’s exactly the kind of medicine this country needs right now.
Powerful movie. A great example of God's love.
Great movie to watch as we remember the Charleston 9.
Never seen a better movie.
Such a well made film. Great film for discussion. Emotional, sad, triumphant, inspiring.
Definitely a must see. It was very hard to watch during some scenes and hearing the emotion of those affected come through the screen. It inspires me to forgive more freely and willingly.
I am proud to view this film first time I will hold dear those brave humans whose lives were taken in the service of faith and love.
This was a well produced piece about tragedy and forgiveness. It focused on the story of love triumphing over hate and a city unified by that love. What Jesus was really all about!
A must see! Profound & inspiring
This film grips your heart and soul. It’s challenging my capacity to forgive while still seeking justice (consequence for actions). I’m grateful to have seen this on the anniversary of a horrible day in our history. The Emanuel 9 will never ever be forgotten. They were maliciously murdered and martyred for the cause of Christ. True witnesses (Acts 1:8)!
A very inspiring movie. May God continue to bless the precious family and friends of the Emanuel 9
Cried from beginning to end. Must see
Love is stronger than hate and the people of Emanuel are a shining beacon the the world as a testament to this. Incredibly moving and powerful film.
Initially I was very hesitant about going to see the movie. I was mostly afraid of the way it would make me feel. After seeing it though, I'm so glad that I did. It did evoke a lot of emotions but it was worth every one of them. I'm praying that they will show it again, release it on TV, DVD or something. Everyone needs to see this movie. Love truly does conquer all and covers a multitude of sins.
A gut wrenching story that every American needs to see.
Takes you through a range of emotions that one could truly appreciate. Appreciation for these emotions because these are what the Survivors and Victims families felt, still being felt to this day!! #IamAME

Wonderful message to all about forgiveness.
Visiting the Church the message of forgiveness was overpowering. The film could have talked more about how they demonstrated it against the world in the park and how the city united.
Beautiful Movie True story of Victims pulling together against Hate
Through interviews with survivors of the massacre, loved ones and congregants, as well as reporters, politicians and activists, Ivie has made something heartfelt and messy, focused on what’s devotional in testifying about a joy that’s never coming back, and pardoning a malevolence that’s never gone away.
Director Ivie, one of the co-founders of Arbella Studios, focuses on faith and social justice, and “Emanuel” perhaps best embodies those two tenets without seeming like it’s proselytizing. But the movie is strongest when it just lets its subjects talk with no agenda at hand.
Both the racial motivations behind the crime and the community's startling reaction make this tragedy especially worth remembering; when it is shown nationwide on the shooting's fourth anniversary, June 17 (with an encore on June 19), it will leave few viewers unmoved.
