God at the Movies begins May 30th!

Movies have a way of communicating unlike any other art form. In them, we find powerful stories of the human experience—an experience marked by intersection with the divine. Whether filmmakers know it or not, God’s fingerprints can be found all over their stories. We’ll take some of the most popular films from the last year and look at how we can find God at the movies.

Lee, who was forced to sign a document promising “never to seek to know” what happened to her son, later moved to England where she married and had a family. Through a lucky set of circumstances, she happens to meet Martin Sixsmith, an ex-BBC reporter. When Philomena tells Martin about her long search for her son, he realizes that hers is a remarkable story.
