I happen to love this movie, which delves into the anti-slavery movement in 18th century England. We see genuine, passionate Christian faith inspiring a man to tirelessly seek social justice.

I am seeking movies for a curriculum on Film Studies & Philosophy I'm writing for my homeschooled teen-ager and me. Comments and suggestions are enthusiastically welcomed. :-) I need recommendations of movies that convey either positive or negative views on theism or religion, so we can compare and contrast these attitudes. I also want to find some great films on various religions, especially Buddhism and Hinduism.
