Sister Rose Pacatte and Peter Malone have completed work on a new volume in the Lights, Camera, Faith series of books about the spiritual and moral lessons we can draw from movies.  Sister Rose says:

The goal of the Lights, Camera, Faith is to bring major motion pictures into dialogue with the scriptures for movie lovers and provide people 18+ (though there is at least one film for 13+ under each beatitude and sin) with an opportunity for “cinema divina”, that is, a an encounter with God through film and the Word.

The new book will include essays on classics, neglected gems, and new releases.  Some of the films covered are: “21 Grams,” “Being There,” “Cinderella Man,” “Citizen Kane,” “Driving Miss Daisy,” “Holes,” “Election,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “The Lives of Others,” “Whale Rider,” “Million Dollar Baby,” and “Mostly Martha.”
