Atom User Reviews for The Hiding Place
Excellent! Didn’t know what to expect from a live play turned into a movie, but it excellent! I wish I could have seen the live production.
Excellent! One of the most impactful films I've ever watched. I was grateful for the opportunity to experience this piece of art in the theatre. (I would not recommend for small children--the content is very heavy).
This was a moving portrayal of the life of the Ten Boom family! While what happened was very heavy it is shown in a way that I believe it would be appropriate for children ages 11/12 and up (depending on personality/maturity level).
I would give it 10 stars! An amazing production of a story many have known for a long time. I hope it will play many more dates at many theatres.
It's nigh impossible to bring a staged play to the screen in a seamless presentation. The Hiding Place is not only the exception to the rule, it defies it. In addition, the subject matter demands a level of reality rarely captured in serious theater. The depiction of the ovens of Ravensbruck was painfully compelling.
Read this book many years ago...it is a story for the ages. Corrie Ten Boom is a legend in our time. A must see, safe for pre-teen to adult audiences depending on your child's level of maturity.
We sat in the theater for 45 mins before someone went and asked why the movie hadn’t started. AMC cancelled the showing and didn’t inform us, which they would have known when we gave them our tickets and they directed us to the theatre for our seats! I was told we could get a refund and I’ve tried, with no success from AMC or the Atom app.
Excellent adaptation of the book, the true story of Corrie TenBoom. Too much a parallel for today. A must see!!
I read the book when I was in school. This is presented as a play and is filmed. The acting is excellent! It really makes you think about forgiveness and doing the right thing. The Ten Boom family saved 800 Jews, and Corrie Ten Boom told people about what happened in the prison camps.
This film of On-Stage production did not disappoint! Side sets enhanced the story. Theatrical performances and visuals were stunning and dramatic. The audience was deeply shaken! I’d see it live if I could.
Excellent production. Now I want to take my kids to see this.

A great adaptation of a story that people need to know. It is a story about hope and forgiveness.
Superbly acted and very much woke content.
Movie was interesting. Not sure how it would have been if I had not read the book. Good acting!
Absolutely worth seeing! A challenging and heart moving true story! A S Peterson did a fantastic job with the script!
