My church has an event ever week where they’ll show a movie and then have a discussion about it. Usually it’s stuff like “The Kite Runner” or “Because of Winn Dixie” - not overtly religious movies, but generally feel-good family friendly movies with some Christian themes in them.
This week it’s “Lars and the Real Girl”, which is about a strange guy who brings an anatomically correct life-sized sex doll home to his family and introduces it as his girlfriend, and how his family and and the town as a whole react. Now, I’ve read this movie is really sweet and is pretty positive for a movie that was inspired by the RealDoll (not linking to their site because it’s definitely NWS), but this seems a really odd choice for a movie to show at your church.
Does anyone know why this is happening? Was it featured in some Christian magazine or something like that?
