Reverend Jacquelyn Eckert says:
“Movies are modern day parables. Watching movies with your inner guide can inform rather than just entertain you. This Spirit Led Movie Watchers Discussion Group will facilitate the participants’ ability to identify spiritual themes in everyday movies and to use movies as a way of uncovering unconscious beliefs about ourselves and the world we live in.”
About The Nines: “You’re not who you think you are”
This film is broken into three chapters centred around three men (all played by Ryan Reynolds) who try to uncover the secret about strange happenings in their, at times overlapping, lives. For the Hollywood player with the right job description and available technology, isn’t it tempting to imagine being God? A video-game designer or a reality-television director, as omnipotent creator and manipulator of a discrete little world, may fancy himself possessor of the keys to the kingdom. Watch the three parts carefully, “The Prisoner”, “Reality Television” and “Knowing” – all symbolic of our own dilemmas in this world.

Next Month’s movie is Love Actually a 2003 Christmas-themed romantic comedy film written and directed by Richard Curtis. It features an ensemble cast, many of whom had worked with Curtis in previous film and television projects. The screenplay delves into different aspects of love as shown through ten separate stories involving a wide variety of individuals, many of whom are shown to be interlinked as their tales progress. Most of the film was filmed on location in London. The story begins five weeks before Christmas and is played out in a weekly countdown until the holiday, followed by an epilogue that takes place one month later. This movie is available on Netflix and Amazon.
