    A charming, funny film. Poitier became the first African-American performer to win an Oscar for a Leading role as a handyman tasked with building a chapel for Skala's convent, a role which garnered her an Oscar nomination. The story is a charmer and unique, sometimes predictable, but still a good film to watch. A fun film, enjoyable for everyone. I give it a 4/5.

    This movie incorporates an interwoven telling of a simple character intersecting apparently randomly at figurative and literal crossroads in his life and the lives of a group of like minded women in the stark desert of the southwest United States. Mr. Nelson employs a gentle and respectful treatment of the screenplay by Mr. Poe and lends the production a warmth and humanness which seemingly hallmarked the lineage of Mr. Poitier from The Defiant Ones by Stanley Kramer to In the Heat of the Night by Norman Jewison, a span of roughly a dozen years which finally freed filmmaking from the shackles of limiting people of color with poignant roles and storytelling.

    My favorite movie. Best of Portier's work and I have seen all of his movies. A great movie about a young man who, for a brief period of time, set aside his own desires to serve a small group of nuns. In the end, he got more than he gave. Hard to believe I have seen the movie about 15 times. I take something new away each time. They don't make movies like this anymore and I hope someone will not get the bright idea to do a remake. No one can play Homer like Sidney.

  • Great film!

    I just saw "Lilies of the Field" for the second time. I love this movie, which I feel is one of Sidney Poitier's best and one of my favorites. Excellent acting, directing, and writing!

    Well acted by all, particularly Sidney Poitier who is excellent. Heartwarming story and one of those movies you never tire of watching. Simple and sweet, fine writing and direction.

  • Finest job by Mr Poitier

    This is what a great movie should look, sound, and feel like. Fine acting, suburb script, flawless direction.Hollywood should be able to put something like this, out at least once every 6 months.Thanks to TCM for broadcasting this film.

  • Great Classic in B/W

    This is a simple classic of a movie done without great F/X and profanity but quite effective in presentation and ahead of its time for that period.
