At the Movies: Date Your Spouse in the House

Looking for some oldie but goodie movies for at home movie night with your husband? Here are a few dvd’s I recently found at my public library. Pop some popcorn and stir up some lemonade. Here you go:

  • A Man for All Seasons – This 1966 movie has a G rating. That in itself is wonderful! How many recent movies are G rated? This movie is about Sir Thomas More. He was a 16th century Chancellor of England who would not compromise his beliefs. He was beheaded by Henry VIII because he would not recant nor compromise his faith. Sir Thomas More’s closing lines are:  “I die his majesty’s good servant, but God’s first.”
  • I Confess – Although I’m not really into the Hitchcock scene, this 1953 Hitchcock drama is riveting! It’s about a priest who hears a murderer’s confession. The priest himself is arrested and goes to trial for the crime. Will the priest betray his vows? Will he compromise his faith? The priest is not willing to betray is vows. Watch to see how it ends.
  • Tender Mercies – A film produced in 1982 with a PG rating. This film depicts a country singer at his low point being drawn to Christ. Touching movie. There is an on screen baptism shown.
