Ten most "spiritually literate" films of 2008
Now comes film reviewers Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat to announce their choices for the 2008 “spiritually literate” films. The couple describes these films as movies that best reflet the character qualities that lead to a meaningful life.
“We’ve identified an alphabet of spiritual practices that are recognized by the world’s religions as being signs of spirituality, and when we watch films, we look for them,” Mary Ann Brussat said in a news release.
She said this year’s list is broader than in previous years, with a new animated film category.
“Some amazing things are happening in this genre, and it is no longer limited to children’s fare,” Frederic Brussat said, pointing to the spiritual messages conveyed by the story of a robot on a quest for love in “WALL.E” and the tale of a caring elephant on a mission of mercy who hears the cries of strangers in “Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!”
For more information about the Brussats and the films they have chosen as “spiritually literate,” visit their interfaith Web site at www.SpiritualityandPractice.com.
Here, according to the Brussats, are 10 characters in the couple’s “Ten Most Spiritually Literate Feature Films of 2008″ modeling difference aspects of spiritual life:
