This Coen Brothers comedy — starring Josh Brolin — wrestles with what it means to do the right thing, through the eyes of a 1950’s Hollywood studio boss. Eddie Mannix, the very capable and successful manager of Capitol Pictures, is on the horns of a personal dilemma when his lead actor in the studio’s highly anticipated “Tale of the Christ” feature is suddenly kidnapped and held for ransom. We will discuss spiritual themes, religious portrayals, and whatever else moves or tickles you in this satirical romp.

Note we will discuss the movie (led by our own Joel Erickson), but will not watch together on July 31.
Available to rent on Amazon Prime.

 

Just Mercy (PG-13)

This is a moving story of a black Christian lawyer, Bryan Stevenson, who decides to move to the deep South to reopen death row cases. The film closely examines Stevenson’s battle to defend a man sentenced to death in spite of clear evidence proving his innocence. This is a great film for opening up the intersection of faith and justice.

Note that we will discuss the movie (led by Micah Clark), but will not watch together that evening.
Free streaming available on Amazon Prime and fandangonow.com.
