Description Leaving the ivy-covered walls of Yale behind, the privileged and intellectual Samuel sets out to discover the real world armed with books and a strong conviction of atheism. He goes to work at an apple orchard under an alias, but is thrust into a world he is wholly unprepared for with religious locals and untrustworthy co-workers. His sexuality and lack of faith will be tested as he learns to rely on strangers in a world that can't be taught in books and a classroom.

    I don't know about this film. It has given me feelings I've always been having all my life. A young man just abandons his riches, his success, and smarts to find something greater for himself as well as cleanse his mind from his own life. And maybe that's all we're searching for in this world. We try and look for the kindness in all things and the beauty in all things and yet we fail like he does. I think that he is the fresh eyes whom just observes the truths of society. I've learned a lot. I don't have a perspective but I've learned something and experienced something unique, complex, and only gives me more questions to ask the world.

    Fillme triste...certos rapazes se perdem na vida... e vivem tristes... eles têm até dificuldade de encontrar um emprego. Morei nos EUA e foi fácil achar um emprego bom. Agora há um certo exagero como mostra neste filme. O protagonista com inglês impecável teria facilidade de achar um emprego melhor, se firmar na vida já que no filme ele não tem nenhum vício, mas claro que ele sofre com a solidão e com conflito mental.

    when he started walking the road i was like "please dont end here, dont end here" but damn i got more questions than answers, he has a long road to think, contrary what most comments says, i dont think he became a religious person

    Gag me. A poorly disguised religious rant where the evil, disconnected atheist is "Saved" by religion.

    Haha people, this trailer is very misleading. *SPOILER*                                                                                           Coming from a Christian, this movie was well done for its purposes. Sadly, the people depicted in the movie exist. As I see it, the director portrayed Christians as fake, crazy and hypocrites. Such a depiction is very much distant from the essence of a true Christian. But anyways, I'm not here to talk about that. I honestly thought the story would go a very different route but I think that the character, in the end, became the biggest atheist ever. And I must say, that he became that rightfully so. With all that he went though, I wouldn't blame him. He witnessed a lot of praying and praising but not enough obeying and doing.

    This movie was not for me.  Could not for the life of me get into it.  Lack of plot, lack of decent actors (personal opinion)…  Was a waste of time.  Maybe my expectations were too high?...

    Really weird movie, I expected something completely different. Some very awkward scenes. And what is up with that super annoying soundtrack?
