Join us for Movie Watcher’s Group on Sunday, April 23 at 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT. This month’s movie is “Arrival,” starring Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker. When twelve mysterious spacecraft appear around the world, linguistics professor Louise Banks is tasked with interpreting the language of the apparent alien visitors. The source material for Arrival is Ted Chiang’s Nebula Award-winning 1998 short story, “The Story of Your Life.” The movie examines the intricacies and differences between spoken and written language in a manner that is not only lucid but interesting. In addition, the movie offers the opportunity to examine the effect of language on the way we view the world. Finally, the movie provides an opportunity to examine the way we view time and the effects of that perception. For a thought provoking analysis of the film, check out this spirituality based review (and related links): http://www.spiritualityandpractice.com/films/reviews/view/28316/arrival
For a quick peek at the film here is the official trailer: Arrival Official Trailer
The movie is available on Amazon, Itunes, Vudu and Youtube. Watch the movie with Spirit, then come and share your insights with the group. Guided movie watching allows us to experience our world and practice forgiveness without leaving our living room! It is recommended you join with Spirit in meditation or prayer prior to viewing the movie and then journal after. Watch for common themes, for characters you like or don’t like, for situations that seem to cause discomfort or joy. Contemplate what your reactions to the movie tell you about your beliefs about yourself and the world you live in. Bring what you learn back to the group and learn from others’ movie watching experience as well. Enjoy the movie and don’t forget to watch your mind!
