The Whisper Home had some of the most supportive and dedicated cast and crew members. When you can get a cast and crew involved emotionally with a script you can really show viewers the passion behind a film and this one definitely has it all. The cast were all impressed and moved by the story even that first night of reading through the script. Erin Beute, plays Rebecca Patterson, said "I knew we had something special and deeply moving!" Randy Vaughn, plays Dave Patterson said "Just saying the words out loud was really touching; the pauses, sighs, and tissue. Everyone was connecting emotionally with everyone in the room." The crew was just as moved by the intensity of the story. Producer, Alex Diehl, said "I know the parable, but not like that! You can't help but be reflective in your own experiences."

The Whisper Home is a professionally done movie. The story is absolutely amazing. Makes the parable come to life! The film makes the viewer really take inventory of your relationships. My own mother, who has not spoke to her brother in years, made a phone call to apologize after watching this film. The story is touching and relative to everyone. The surprises and twists will leave you speechless.
