'The Nativity Story' (2006) American film that focuses on the period in Mary and Joseph's life where they journeyed to Bethlehem for the birth of Jesus. It was the first film to premiere in Vatican City.
The obvious Nativity subtext aside, I don't think of this movie as commentary about the future; it's about every generation. Past, present and future. The signs are all there. The idea isn't religious; it's universal, all faiths and beliefs. We see what we want to see in art, our own beliefs and our own thoughts reflected back on us. What this film does is it crosses boundaries to mix all together about one single idea that brings them into one, four-lettered word: hope.
The Very First Noel - This is my favorite movie to show after Christmas break. It is told through the eyes of the three kings. For more pins like this visit: http://pinterest.com/kindkids/religious-education/
