MOVIE: Get Low

Saw a movie with the Wife this weekend that was a surprise delight for me.

Get Low has an odd cast of actors (Robert Duvall, Bill Murray, Lucas Black) and one actress (Sissy Spacek)that at first glance one will seem incompatible. But the combination actually works!

I was also surprised to see the Catholic teaching of Reconciliation, the main theme of the movie. One can't have someone else ask for forgiveness for you, one can't ask for forgiveness in the solitude of ones own mind or heart (mortal sin), one must 'confess' it out loud. In the case of Catholic Teaching, to a priest.

While the movie doesn't quite make that connection, it does portray that overall theme...asking for forgiveness
