Last Friday, Nicole and I went to see P.S. I Love You at the theater. Fridays are our day off and it was Nicole’s turn to pick the movie. Who did we see there, but Jason Gant and Jason Watson. They were off to see Alien v. Predator – Requiem – quite a different genre of movie than we headed to see. Jason Gant challenged me to blog about the movie so here goes 🙂
One of the topics that I address with couples at whose wedding I will be officiating is how a conversation can escalate into a serious conflict. In the first scene of the movie Holly and Gerry (the main characters) are in a classic example of this type of escalating conflict in which each person pushes the emotional buttons of the other and things just gets worse. I am thinking about getting the DVD and playing it as an example of this with couples in the future.
The movie was also a story of a woman moving through grief. There are definitely healthier ways to move through grief than is portrayed in the movie. Nevertheless, it does provide a picture of the depth and strength of emotions at the loss of a spouse.
I give this movie 3 out of 5 stars. If you are thinking about watching it you can probably wait until it comes out on DVD.
What movies have you seen recently that have implications for the life of faith or ministry?
