I found a DVD of Milton’s Secret in the bargain bin, and I really wanted to like it. It stars my favorite actor, Donald Sutherland, and was written by Eckhart Tolle, who I think is Pretty Good.
But something about it just didn’t click. It had the feeling of one of those “After School Specials” in the 70s, where it is all just a tad over the top and everything is neatly wrapped up in the end– by which time we all have learned An Important Lesson.
It wasn’t a bad movie, I guess; I was just disappointed that it wasn’t as good as it might have been.
You can watch the trailer at the official website, MiltonsSecret.com, and decide for yourself it you want to invest the time.
