Monday Movie Meme--Religious Roles

Feature Presentation...

hosted by Molly of the Bumbles Blog.

This week's meme is celebrating Martin Luther King Junior Day. He was a powerful political leader and religious leader as well. Pick some movies with memorable or infamous religious characters.

1. Frollo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996). Yeah, this twisted priest really creeped me out!

2. Father Gabriel from The Mission (1986): He cared, really cared. Heart-wrenching movie...beautiful music but can never ever watch it again.

3. Palmer Joss from Contact (1997): Both Jodie Foster's character and this one struggled with the balance between faith and science, with Palmer representing the faith side. Really well done.


  1. Thoughtful pics.

    I'd choose:

    2004 - The Passion of the Christ
    (Jesus) Though this is one I could only watch once.

    1993 - Shadowlands
    The portrayal of how C.S. Lewis lived out his faith and struggled with it after the loss of his wife was very powerful

  2. I loved "The Hunchback" and you are right--that priest was totally twisted. I also really enjoyed "Contact". I'm glad you thought of these two great films.

  3. Hey--I just noticed you are a Utah Book Blogger--so am I :)

    and I like your new background.

  4. Love the music from The Mission, but I don't think I could watch the movie again either.


Thanks for reading my posts and for letting me know what you think!
