Standing up For Truth/ Making Positive Change in the World

Post by Mary » Wed Nov 04, 2015 4:58 am

In this thread we'd love to hear about movies that caused you to feel about standing up for truth and/or making positive change in the world.

These are usually inspirational movies where characters do something new and different out of honour for a loving principle or in a desire to make the world a better place.

"A stranger in the city asks questions no one has asked before. Known only by his initials, P.K.'s innocent questions and childlike curiosity will take him on a journey of love, laughter and letting-go."

"A Bollywood movie about an alien who was left behind on earth when his spaceship left. It's comical when the hero questions the world's ways. And because he has no fear he questions, and call people ('spiritual' people) on their bullshits publicly. Also talks about his longing for God, in fact for me this was the most touching part of the movie when he was praying so deeply for God."
