The best of 2010

Reviewers choose "most spiritually literate" films for the past year

Every year we choose the "Most Spiritually Literate Films" from all the movies we've reviewed. We look for films whose stories reflect the search for meaning and purpose, whose characters demonstrate the application of spiritual qualities in daily life, and whose themes raise our awareness about the challenges facing our world.

Picks for spiritually literate films
The Social Network is among the reviewers' picks for spiritually literate films.

Some of our choices from the 2010 films are The Social Network (PG-13), The King's Speech (R), Made in Dagenham (R), The Company Men (R), Hereafter (PG-13), Secretariat (PG), The Secret of Kells (not rated), Toy Story 3 (G), Tangled (PG), Secret Sunshine (not rated), Welcome (not rated), Last Train Home (not rated), Budrus (not rated), Babies (PG) and Vision: The Life of Hildegard of Bingen (not rated).

Visit the Spirituality and Practice website to read reviews of these films and to see the full list of the 45 "Most Spiritually Literate American Features, Foreign Language Films, Animated Films and Documentaries."
