"'If you want to become my followers, you must deny yourselves and take up your cross daily and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will save it. What does it profit you if you gain the whole world, but lose or forfeit your very self?'" (Luke 9:23-25)

Film Lectio II - Moonstruck

Each human life is a tragicomic story

Jmoonstruck2

Starts Wednesday 13 June
Moonstruck (1987) is directed by Norman Jewison. It stars Cher (as Loretta Castorini), Olympia Dukakis (as Rose, Cher’s mother), Danny Aiello (as Johnny Cammareri, who has proposed to Loretta) and Nicolas Cage (as Johnny’s brother, Ronnie). It is fair to call it a romantic comedy, focusing on New York Italian families. However, in a surprising and beautiful way, it gently probes some of the deeper questions of human existence: what is the relationship between love and romance, sex and death, authenticity and love, culture and identity?

Olympia Dukakis gives a particularly memorable performance.

Someone once described comedy as tragedy with timing. It was never more true than of this film.
