The movie "Noah" is opening in theaters across the country today and a number of Catholics have strong feelings about the movie with some declaring they will not watch it. Of course, the movie Noah is a Hollywood production and it promises to be both entertaining and thought-provoking, no matter what some naysayers proclaim.
The movie 'Noah' opens today.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Before we judge a thing, it is important we measure it for ourselves. The movie "Noah" is no exception.
The Hollywood epic is based on the story of "Noah" in the Bible although there is controversy surrounding the accuracy of its content. This should not come as a surprise because the movie is a Hollywood production. We have only a few paragraphs of sacred scripture from which to weave an entire epic production. Some license must be taken for the film to pass Hollywood muster.
Despite the license, the movie does refer people to the book of Genesis where the actual, Biblical story of Noah can be read. Furthermore, the movie is certain to generate interest and conversations about the story of Noah and its meaning to us as Christians today.
Can anything that stimulates conversation about God necessarily be bad?
Catholic Online invites your opinion, but first we encourage you to see the movie, then share your views with us in the comments below. Did the movie make you think about God? Is your relationship with God built up by your experience?
