The Errand of Angels (2008)
I'd heard that this movie was really good (although I can't remember where I heard that now), and my expectations may have been too high. It captures some experiences of sister missionaries in a German-speaking country, so that was fun for me, (because I served a mission in the Dresden, Germany, mission from 1992-1993). There's a lot of German in it, which was also fun, though some of it is oddly translated in the subtitles. There isn't much of a plot, although what plot there was stayed true to what might actually happen on a mission. It's definitely one of the better movies targeting an LDS audience, but not as dramatic or moving as God's Army or its sequel, States of Grace.
