Dan Millman’s book Way of the Peaceful Warrior has inspired spiritual seekers worldwide for over 20 years. Fans of this classic will thoroughly enjoy the movie. Peaceful Warrior is faithful to the story and message of Dan’s beloved book. Nick Nolte gives a stellar performance as “Socrates” the wise shaman who transforms Dans’ perception of reality and, consequently, his life.
The power of cinema to transform the perception of the viewer is fully realized in Peaceful Warrior. Allow yourself to fully experience the lessons presented in the movie and you will feel a shift in your own perception.
Peaceful Warrior depicts the conflicts and challenges of the master/student relationship between Dan and Socrates. More importantly, we experience the pain and heartache that Millman endures as his world-view is turned upside-down, and we feel the shift as Millman opens his mind to the reality of the present moment.
Peaceful Warrior has all the elements of a great movie: a fantastic story that transcends time, an engaging presentation, memorable characters, and fine acting. Scott Mechlowicz gives a moving performance as Dan Millman, and fans of Amy Smart will enjoy her performance as Joy.
Peaceful Warrior is a film suitable for all ages and, unlike The Matrix, whose hero’s story was set against a background of violence and anarchy, Peaceful Warrior brings home the message of personal transformation in a light and engaging manner that will change the way you see the world forever.
Peaceful Warrioropens on June 23, at the Dallas Magnolia Theatre.
