Bridge to Terabithia

Danny Sims recommends this movie saying this on his blog:
The two main characters are a boy (Jesse) and a girl (Leslie) who become friends in those tough “junior high age” years when we all need good friends. Jesse’s family goes to church weekly whereas Leslie’s family does not. Yet it is Leslie who is imaginative and full of fun and life. She opens Jesse’s world to beautiful thoughts and ideas about helping people.

There is a scene where Jesse has taken Leslie to church. On their way home Leslie tells Jesse how much she enjoyed going and how fascinated she is with God. When he acts surprised she tells him, “It’s funny… You have to go to church and you hate it. I don’t have to go and I think it’s beautiful.”
I like that last quote - kids gets to the heart of life don't they. Please let me know if you have seen this movie and what you thought of it.
