The Shack DVD
Full Product Description
You’ve read the book, now see the words come to life in this highly-visual new film starring Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer and Graham Greene.
Based on William P. Young’s bestselling novel, The Shack follows Mack Phillips as he deals with the kidnapping and murder of his youngest daughter whilst the family are on a camping trip in the woods. Shocked to his core, Mack spirals out of control, questioning everything he ever knew or believed.
As anger and depression set in, and Mack retreats from all those around him, a mysterious letter appears, urging him to go back to the site of the crime. Believing the note is from God, Mack travels back into the source of all his pain. There, in that decrepit shack, begins a journey like no other. Mack comes face to face not only with his own past and pain, but with a spiritual journey guided by the Trinity who are all waiting for Mack to arrive.
A story of healing and finding peace amidst pain, The Shack is a life-changing film filled with awe-inspiring visuals and a powerful message.

Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer and Graham Greene star in this US drama
based on the novel by William P. Young. After his youngest daughter is
kidnapped and murdered by a serial killer on a family camping trip, Mack
Phillips (Worthington) spirals into a deep depression and begins
questioning his faith.
When he receives a letter urging him to return to the site of the crime, Mack believes it is from God and decides to follow his heart into the wilderness. Back at the shack in the woods, Mack begins a fantastical spiritual journey that might just restore his dwindling faith and allow him to heal after he receives guidance from the Holy Trinity.
Review by Andrew Maclean at First Last Film
The family is torn apart in the aftermath of this tragedy and Mack pushed yet further from an already distant God he seems to barely believe in.
Some time later Mack is called back to 'The Shack' via a mysterious letter which appears in his letterbox.
What follows is a fantastical journey of a man finding his way out of the smothering depths of sorrow and into the bosom of God.
By Christian film standards this was a high budget film at $20 million. This money is apparent from the wonderful cast to the captivating visual effects. The script treads a delicate line between the horror of child abduction and murder and any temptation towards saccharine sweet Christian answers to such horrors. Just as you think the film is going to be cutsie it swerves back into authenticity.
Academy award winner Octavia Spencer plays 'Papa' (God) with a genuine kindness and affection. Jesus (Avraham Aviv Alush) is open and funny and a friend while Sam Worthington's Mack is honest and broken.
The film feels like a Christian weekend away. You meet friends, grow close and feel changed by the process in a really short time. The film addresses hard hitting subjects and asks how we can forgive the unforgivable. It asks the audience to look where they need to forgive and pulls their heart strings enough to make them cry but not enough to make them shrug with cynicism.
Some will struggle with the theology but the message of God's unreserved love and forgiveness will reach down into the depths of the audience. The pre-screening audience wept throughout.
I honestly feel this is the best Christian film since The Passion of The Christ.
