Item Description...
Explores what popular films of the 1980s and 1990s say about religion and the values by which we live

Publishers Description
What did Thelma and Louise say to a society anxious about gender roles and sexual harassment? What did The Piano propose to a society experiencing backlash in equal opportunities for women and minorities? This text explores how recent movies express ideas about religion, relationships, and society. In-depth examinations of 15 recent popular films, as well as their production and critical reception, reveal patterns in their treatment of religion, relationships, race, and gender. It shows how filmmakers sought to defy those conventions; where they succeeded and where they failed.
