Two Movies

The Golden Compass has just been released, a movie version of the first of Philip Pullman’s ‘His Dark Materials’ trilogy. There’s a helpful article here on how Christians should respond to a children’s fairy tale with atheist undercurrents…

But my main reason for blogging is August Rush – which is simply brilliant! It moved me in a way that movies haven’t for a long time. The central line goes something like, “God gave us music to remind us that we’re not on our own”. Without being able to exactly quantify the film’s message, I left the cinema feeling that my soul had been nourished. A beautiful, beautiful movie. Go, see.
