Set in a fictional Indiana town during the Great Depression, Jim Leonard Jr.'s moving drama focuses on the friendship between an ex-preacher from Kentucky and a disturbed young boy. The boy -- deeply traumatized by a near-drowning in his past that led to the death of his mother -- is now terrified of water, but also gifted with the ability to divine its location. As the bond between these two grows, the preacher works with the boy to overcome his crippling fear of water. And when the townspeople, desperate for a spiritual leader, mistake an eventual bathing for a baptism, their confusion leads to some significant consequences in The Diviners. Learn More

The funny scenes worked better than the more serious ones - very clever and well written. For those who haven't seen Pulp Fiction in a while, it might help to watch the movie again beforehand (I'd forgotten lots of scenes, which made it a little confusing sometimes).

This was a real hoot! The writing was excellent. It was such fun to hear the story in Elizabethan English. The actors were great; they really were true to the orginal characters in spite of the cumbersome language. And the costumes were inspired.
