Faith and Film

There are a number of upcoming films that focus around the subject of spirituality, faith, and God. Since I'm a big fan of both, these films have me intrigued. One is Bill Maher's Religulous, which is a documentary/comedy intended to poke fun at religious people (Maher attempts to prove that Jesus is a legend based off an earlier Egyptian god). Another is Doubt, a film about a nun confronting a priest about possibly abusing a student at their private school starring Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Amy Adams. And a film that is currently in theaters is Henry Poole is Here, starring Luke Wilson as a depressed and isolated man who happens to have a picture of Jesus miraculously appear in the stucco on his house.
