You know that I'm gonna comment on a film starring both Deschanel and Robb, of course.

On a 10-point scale, I gave it a 6.5, as the film's tone seems to force the Biblical considerations without any forewarning, so that these themes are neither built up nor considered much. Thus, while Robb's character is very much a neo-hippie, her counterpart is so lifeless and inert as a character that I cannot much care for his arc. I'm still trying to understand why Robb wouldn't have simply just asked his sister to come along, rather than agree with his silence of their kingdom around her.

Also, occasional odd slow-mo sequences through off the rhythm for me. Nearly excellent, but never quite there.
