Notes
"Seeking intimations of grace at the movies can be hit-and-miss. ... Four recent movies touch on aspects of grace: three are explicitly Christian in perspective, while the fourth is implicitly grounded in faith. The best of the quartet is 'Paul, Apostle of Christ'." Paul's [James Faulkner] "strength and Luke's [Jim Caviezel] gentleness are admirable without seeming artificial. Solid performances, and a message that feels unforced, combine to pleasing result". "In 'God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness' a historic church situated on a secular university campus in no longer welcome. .... It suggests that organized religion is under attack by secular foes; but, so far (in the West, at least) that's a hyperbolic premise. .... The writing and cast are uneven ..". "'I Can Only Imagine' is based on the true story of the lead singer for MercyMe, a Christian music band that struck a chord with the song that gives the film its title. It's well-intentioned stuff -- about turning pain to inspiration. But its protagonist (J. Michael Finley's Bart Millard) is dull". "'A Wrinkle in Time', which sends children on a trans-dimensional journey to find their missing father, is a disappointment. .... authenticity is missing here, in a film hampered by inconsistent casting ... an overreliance on effects and a misreading of the story as an action piece, when it is actually anchored in relationships ... It inflates the potency of evil ... And the heart of the story, which is about grace, is neglected ..".
