“Secret Sunshine”: Best Depiction of Evangelical Christianity?

Darren Hughes calls Secret Sunshine “the truest depiction of evangelical Christianity I’ve seen on film.”

Victor Morton doesn’t quite agree. (You have to scroll down for his review.)

And J. Robert Parks has mixed feelings about it. …

GreenCine Daily has even more reviews of the film from Toronto and from Cannes.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    I suspect I’ll be asked to defend that statement quite a bit over the next few months, as more and more people see Secret Sunshine. ;)
