Ok. I was pretty into this movie...until the kids' accounts of seeing angels was...all their relatives.
A Mormon directed this (I believe) and Cokeville is primarily a Mormon town.
I still cried at the end when it showed the survivors with their families. I found it beautiful they ALL had on average, 4-5 kids (some more) I only saw 1-2-3 that had 2-3 kids. Wow! Clearly - they all value life and see children as a blessing after coming out of that insane situation.
But...ancestor angels? This isn't biblical. Can anyone offer input? To this point my studies have led me to agree with the fact demons can impersonate "angels of light" and - are highly aware of not only what we look like but personal information etc ... so accounts like this always make me wonder if they are involved. But in this case they weren't really giving information to deceive but actually helped the kids out, as well as were possibly responsible for some other unexplainable events in the days prior and that day.
It does (the movie) try to seem to point people to God/Christ however... I wonder about the town and what beliefs could have been/were enforced by this seemingly wonderful event coming out of potential mass tragedy.
