ELO: Staub on the theology of the five Oscar-nom best pictures

Episcopal Life Online - OPINION: "In a nation where the dominant religion is Christianity, one would expect an adequate Christian response to the theological questions raised by today's films.

So what, then, are the theologies of the five nominees for the best picture award, and is there a compelling Christian response?

All five nominees portray human capacity for evil and fallenness, and explore, in a way, whether there is reason for hope. With one exception, these films reveal a sense of inevitable doom and a pervasive pessimism about the human condition."
