Fate and Free Will at the Movies

Running from fate … or something

In this month when FemmeFuel examines issues of luck, destiny, fate and faith, we’re intrigued by a new movie coming out this Friday: The Adjustment Bureau, a romantic thriller starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, and directed by George Nolfi

“Is the course of your life solely a result of your choice, or are there other, larger forces at work? These are questions theologians and philosophers have been debating for centuries. And these are the questions at the heart of this romantic thriller.” –Camerin Courtney. Click here to read Courtney’s review of The Adjustment Bureau in Christianity Today.

Another terrific movie to watch on-demand or on DVD is 2008 Academy Award winner, Slumdog Millionaire, which heavily tackles the concept of destiny. Read how Christ and Pop Culture considers God’s divine design, in the backdrop of this compelling award-winner.
