Two Thumbs Up for “Namesake”!

Namesakeposter1Vicky and I watched this film last night.  It is very good…it starts a bit "slow" but then gathers steam as it explores the issues of family, identity and enculturation.   I found this film broadly applicable to some very significant theological reflection.  In fact, I could see using it as a discussion piece to theorize on how easy it is for us to "walk away" from our identity as Christ-followers and what it takes for us to reclaim who we were created to be.  In addition, there is much fodder for talk about relationships and family and how those foundational pieces of our lives are undermined by current cultural practice and habit.  Good film!  Check it out!
