Messages in Incredibly Loud, and Marigold Hotel
Culturewatch ministry Damaris has produced resources to bring out spiritual and life lessons embedded in two great new film releases…
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
The moving story of a boy with Asperger’s whose father has died in the Twin Towers:
Jonathan Safran Foer’s novel Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (now a major Hollywood film starring Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks) explores one boy’s search for meaning after the death of his father in the Twin Towers attacks. Peter S. Williams and Sophie Lister explore the deeper issues raised in both book and film, looking to point a way towards the answers that Oskar is searching for. Short enough to read in one sitting, deep enough to provoke further thought, this mini-eBook from Damaris is the perfect stimulus for anyone sharing in Oskar’s search for hope. Buy as a Kindle or iPad eBook (plus other related ebooks on movies and popular culture).
Incidentally, Damaris are also planning resources for the re-release of Chariots of Fire later this year. Producer David Putnam will be talking about the message of the film at the Christian Resources Exhibition 8 May.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Damaris writes, “A delightful and stimulating movie that features a wonderful collection of much loved British actors.
It tells the story of a group of pensioners whose retirement takes an unconventional turn as they move to a hotel for ‘the elderly and beautiful’ in Jaipur, India, run by the ever optimistic young manager Sonny (Dev Patel). We are delighted to provide free official community resources which will enable all of us to make the most of this feel-good movie.”
