Every year several movies make their way to the box office sweeping huge revenues from their success but only few to sweep the hearts. Only a couple of quality movies teach the world about leaving self and selfishness back so that we could love people and do the best for everyone without expecting anything in return. The same concepts and faith that are practised and preached by the ever growing community of Bruderhof.
The story is based on a novel with the same name originally written by the famous author Catherine Ryan Hyde. The genesis of the idea behind this famous novel lies on a story based on the philosophy of Bruderho that happened with the author in real. Once during her stay back at home, her car caught fire but none of her neighbourhood came out to help. Instead, two strangers whom she had never met before came forward, helped her and disappeared even before she could have expressed her thanks to them.
Pay It Forward was released in 2000 under the banner of Warner Brothers and still stands proudly as one of those memorable movies that could never be forgotten in the history of mankind. The movie was directed by the famous director Mimi Leder well known for her other movies such as Deep Impact, The PeaceMaker, Thick as Thieves and many more. She also has a credit of two Primetime Emmys in her name. The main cast includes the famous names as Helen Hunt, Kevin Spacey and Haley Joel Osment. (more...)
