This is not a full post and I don’t do movie reviews here (not enough time to see enough movies to do it well).
But if I can make a partial exception on this U.S. holiday, for my U.S. readers: “Selma” (a movie about Martin Luther King, Jr., and his colleagues demanding that African-Americans be allowed to vote in a location where that was being obstructed) is one of the most Christian secular movies you could possibly see. Of course not every role in the movie in a positive one, as it was not in history (and young children might be disappointed to know that Lyndon B. Johnson, not unlike Richard Nixon, was not averse to vulgarities), but this film doesn’t play down the vital role of faith in the movement, including that of its many leaders who were ministers in the Black Church (and some white ministers who joined them).
