I am thinking of having a movie night especially geared toward the men in the parish. I want a movie(s) with a good message yet recognizable enough to attract people. A couple I’ve thought of and why I like them:
“I Confess” - Hitchcock, need I say more…well, OK, integrity is a strong message. A priest hears a confession of a murderer and then becomes the prime suspect in the murder - does he meet the demands of confidentiality possibly being blamed for a crime he did not commit or does he save his own skin?
“The Scarlet and the Black” - Courage, inspiration - based on a true story of a Vatican priest who organized the hiding of people from the Nazis. Gregory Peck’s best in my opinion.
