Religious Movies

Beliefnet makes film awards and invites your participation:
What were the best spiritual movies and performances of last year? See this year's nominees for Best Spiritual Film, Best Spiritual Performance, and Best Spiritual Documentary. Then watch clips, join the debate, and vote on your favorites.
I've seen Amazing Grace, which is magnificent, and Into Great Silence, which is profound, but none of the others - so I'm not voting. But here are the nominees and a link to the site:
Best Spiritual Film:
  • Amazing Grace
  • Atonement
  • Away From Her
  • Juno
  • The Kite Runner
Best Spiritual Performance:
  • Emile Hirsch [Into the Wild]
