When you’re relaxing Sunday night after the Easter feasting is over, you want to watch something uplifting, not a particularly dark episode of Mad Men like we did last year. (I love the show, and I can handle heavy viewing. Just not appropriate for Easter, you understand.)
You want something to make you cry with joy. You want to see redemption, to see the good triumph—bursting forth in glorious day, as the hymn goes.
A handful of suggestions:
- Chariots of Fire
- The Sound of Music
- Les Miserables
- Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
What would you add to the list? (Sorry I don’t have one about JC. In this post about movies for Lent, Steven Greydanus recommends kid-friendly The Miracle Maker, which I haven’t seen.)
P.S. Here’s some beautiful Easter egg hunt inspiration! Have a wonderful weekend!
