Always several years behind the times, I finally watched the 2003 Mormon movie, “The Best Two Years.” I was surprised to find it and another Mormon movie at our local video rental place. I think it’s my favorite Mormon movie so far, and would even recommend it to young people preparing for a mission since I felt it was a relatively realistic representation of some aspects of missionary life, in spite of having a bit too much corny acting.
The importance of unity in a companionship was one theme I considered while watching the movie. How vital that is, and how challenging it is when a companion can be so different. But this is possible, though the miracle of charity is often needed.
