Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway’s "Interstellar," a Hollywood Sci-Fi adventure film, echoed religious themes and raised questions about the existence of God. The film is set at a time when planet Earth is near death; its resources are nearly depleted, and if something does not change soon, all of Earth’s inhabitants will die. McConaughey’s character Cooper, a single parent of two children, is offered the opportunity to save humanity by embarking on a space exploration. His goal is to find a new world that will sustain human life.
“Wayward: The Prodigal Son” is the latest Bible story on the big screen. With limited opening weekend screenings of the film in Northern California, I made sure to arrive early. However, with ten minutes until showtime, only five of us sat in the audience: my family of three and and a older couple in the back. A middle-aged couple, one of whom wore a silver cross on his shirt, snuck in right as the previews began.
