Throughout his research, Lee struggles to accept the evidence piling up before him and refuses to believe God exists and loves him. In the end, the movie is about his journey from skepticism to faith. The movie is well done and credible while showing how both Leslie and her husband feels, and it is an overall good movie. I feel the movie was well done, and I like the way the scenes were portrayed. Unlike many religious movies, The Case For Christ wasn’t tacky and garish in showing Lee’s transition.
The movie Leap of Faith had some realistic portrayals or ideas of faith in the characters. For the main characters, they are realistic because they do not believe in the faith or the religious act they are doing. This portrayal is realistic because there are some out there who don’t have any faith or believe in anything. As for the people who are visiting or attending these shows or sermons it is realistic of some people’s faith. I say this is realistic because some idolize preachers and pay to see them.
The townsfolk were very religious, so the Reverend easily persuaded them to believe that Drummond was an evil man, without any real knowledge about Drummond. Overall, although this play was based on true events, how religion was presented might not be as
One way in which Rennies was searching for truth is when her brother, Buddy was missing during the war. “With mom sick and Buddy missing, I don’t mind doing my part” (Dallas 186). Rennies whole family was searching for the truth during the book but, it was out of their hands and at the end of the book we never find out what happened to Buddy. Rennie was also searching for the truth about who killed her good friend Susan along with Susan’s family. While I read the book I noticed that Rennie was making predictions about who she thought the killer might be and this is why I thought Rennies was searching for truth more than anyone in Tallgrass.
It is very important to address this issue as the society has always regarded the bond between the mother and the child to be above the bond a father might share. This movie does great justice for to the time it was released in, however I see this movie to still be relevant in today’s age. Single or joint custody of a child are matters, which are dealt with on a case-by-case basis however the argument remains the same. It is important to note that in the recent years this has changed. Now the courts look at the person who is fit for the role rather than going by the tender years doctrine notion, having said that I believe that there are a majority of places in the world where the preference would again be of the mother rather than the father winning the case.
Valerie and her family didn’t have the best relationship and they often struggled to get along. Valerie’s parents had a broken marriage and Valerie had to witness it everyday. Jennifer could relate to Valerie’s situation because her own parents were the inspiration for writing about Valerie’s parents like she did. In Jennifer’s home, her parent’s marriage was broken just like

The characters lose a part of themselves when they are searching for their true love. In Their Eyes Were Watching God, Janie was arguing with Jodie, while he was dying, about how he never treated her right after being together for 20 years. They revealed many things about themselves during this talk, especially how Jodie was hurt on the inside too. Janie looked at herself and realized this, “The young girl was gone, but handsome woman had taken her place”(108). This quote shows how Janie regained herself after that horrible relationship.
The concept of morality is commonly believed to be a byproduct of religion with “[n]early half of Americans believ[ing] that morality is impossible without belief in god” (Pyysiäinen 44). Yet, the correlation between the two seems to be less concrete with research showing that “[c]ountries with high rates of religiosity tend to have higher rates of homicide, juvenile mortality (including suicide), sexually transmitted diseases and adolescent pregnancy, and abortion ( 45). Moreover, a study evaluated by Pyysiäinen finds that “religiosity has little to nothing to do with how people evaluate the goodness or badness and acceptability vs. non-acceptability of particular moral judgements” (Pyysiäinen 47). Instead of religion creating morals, Broom
What comes around goes around. The film Smaller and Smaller Circles directed by Raya Martin was good considering Filipino and indie film standards, however there’s still something missing, in the sense that it could have done more in expanding its view and show the bigger picture. The movie was a film adaptation of the awarded F.H. Batacan’s Smaller and Smaller Circles, which is already a stupendous material on its part. The film explores on the country’s overwhelming state, where: the church would rather protect its credibility than its own children, the crime bureau is riddled with media opportunists, the rich and powerful working for the further approval of the public and the poor who is kept silent amidst the suffering they’re constantly experiencing.
