Over the next three Fridays, there are three terrific Christian movies coming out back-to-back-to-back. Tomorrow’s movie is called Voiceless and deals head-on with the issue of abortion.
Voiceless is a very powerful movie. It is honest and gritty. After having the opportunity to watch it last month, there are two things that are really sticking with me.
First, its “honesty” covers those inside the church as well as those outside. The temptation with a movie like this is to have one character stand up for what is right, and then have the whole church get behind him and make a difference. I won’t give away the latter part of the movie, but all throughout you see various characters display apathy, fear, tension, and downright opposition to the main character’s desire to fight an increasingly challenging battle.
Second, I really appreciate that the makers of Voiceless don’t paint every pro-choice character as a villain. They are real people who have their own struggles and convictions. It was so refreshing to see a Christian movie that doesn’t use a one-size-fits-all approach to portraying the non-Christian characters.
