Watched the movie Saved last night.
Yes its another American teen coming of age, who's in who's out romance thing, but this time the background is evangelical Christianity.
Interesting too that Michael Stipe of REM was one of the producers.
Personally I think it should be on the curriculum for Christian youthworkers as it rasies some interesting issues - with the final quote asking "what would Jesus do?". Essentially it says key things about love, what it means to be like Jesus, not forgetting peer pressure for youth.
But not one to watch if you can't laugh at evangelical sub-culture!
There's one amusing scene with an altar call in the school assembly and the "rebel" pupil fakes speaking in tongues!
