How Can a Film about Online Porn be Spiritually Uplifting?

28 Mar

1st. article in our series: “Spiritually Uplifting Films in Hollywood!”

It’s refreshing, to see a film that is forward thinking and spiritually uplifting these days. Recently, I had the pleasure of watching Don Jon (now out on video) although the trailer looks like a tribute to online porn. Don’t be fooled, the film is a smartly packaged romantic comedy (called the chic flick genre in Hollywood) and has started a debate that it may be a feminist film in disguise.

The actual film is quite complex, asking questions about hyper masculinity, objectification, has technology marginalized relationships,  if the media causes people to seek unhealthy and unrealistic interactions with each other?  The film stars Joseph-Gordon Levitt who also wrote and directed the film. For the next few weeks LIH will be focusing on films that have impacted us spiritually and contribute to advancing our culture positively and I think Don Jon does just that, hope you check it out. Enjoy!
