Synopsis

This 1954 classic stars James Stewart and Grace Kelly in one of Alfred Hitchcock's early masterpieces. In it, a wheelchair-bound photographer takes to spying on his neighbours from his apartment window and becomes convinced one of them has committed murder. The film is an intriguing study of isolation and voyeurism in modern urban communities and asks the question (as put by Kelly in the film), "whatever happened to that old saying: 'Love thy neighbour’"? This classic film raises many questions pertinent to today, and is sure to set up a fantastic conversation afterward.

Film and Theology is designed to create discussion and dialogue as we engage with media & culture in film. Every Film and Theology starts with watching a movie on the big screen and then a short time of discussion at the end. At Westside our worldview is shaped by the Bible and the Christian faith, therefore we watch movies through that lens. In our view, we're looking at what needs to be received, rejected or redeemed.

We recognize that not everyone who attends these movies is a christian, but everyone is welcome to attend and engage in discussion, share thoughts, and ask questions in an open, informal, and honest space.
