BYOB Faith and Film
6:30 doors open
This month’s film is nomInated for five Academy Awards (2000).
In an unusual French chocolate shop, a lovely proprietor creates mouth-watering confections, shake up the rigid morality of the community and eventually inspire locals to abandon themselves to temptation and happiness.
Here’s what people said about the film:
“The most tempting of all sweets becomes the key weapon in a battle of sensual pleasure versus disciplined self-denial in this comedy.”
“A mythic fable about tolerance and love with the bitter-swet flavor of a candy that’s not entirely fresh but still digestible.”
“Any movie built on the premise that chocolate can cure mental illness, restore marital passion, unite feuding relatives, assuage anger, defeat oppression, inspire art and get you a date with Johnny Depp is all right in my book.”
Sanctuary’s Faith and Film happens every month – a BYOB. Bring your own beer, wine or soda and experience the places where Pop culture meets our faith. We will watch a current film followed by a discussion about themes of morality, faith, and humanity led by local theologians and community leaders.
