I would like to be able to go there some day. Have you been there? I would be very interested to hear about it, if you are willing to share.

It's a nice 'feel good' movie, about inspiration and hope. Predictable, but a good one.
We share the same interest. I am also very interested in ancient history. I will check this movie out, sounds good. Morgan Freeman is very talented.

I'd love to hear about it as well, Craig. I will never get there at this point in my life. It must have been mind boggling to actually go there.

I recently watched 'The Mission' (1986) for the second time and was surprised to see a very young, earnest Liam Neeson in the cast. A good film with a historical bent, starring Jeremy Irons & Robert De Niro, with a brief appearance by Aiden Quinn, also very young and earnest.
