Cry from the Mountain

Film
When Parker takes his ten-year-old son on a canoeing trip in the Alaskan wilderness to break the news of his impending divorce, he bashes his head when their kayak collapses. An old mountain dweller (Cavan) comes to the rescue, and - he's an ardent evangelist - accompanies the pair home, where he convinces the wife (Walter) to go to a Billy Graham crusade. The sermon convinces her, like her hospitalised husband, that there is a way to solve their problems. She and her son are born again, the old man is born again, and the viewer is invited by Graham's voice to follow suit. It's a well-worn weepie formula, but there's little in the simplistic working out of the plot or the idea of salvation as an all-round happy ending to move sceptics very far.
