The Lenten season is already ending in a matter of few days. Before the pandemic, the last or holy week of this season is usually spent with a long vacation with our family, road trips with our friends, or a solemn retreat to reflect for ourselves. The observance of the season this year seems a bit different. While we are highly encouraged to stay at home these days, it does not mean that we should stop doing activities related to the holy week and the coming Easter.
We can do the usual activities like family devotions, daily prayer, fasting, meditation, and Easter egg hunt while in the comforts of our homes. If you want something more creative, you can begin with a DIY home theater for the whole family. After all the reflections during the day, how about some feel-good and reflective movies to watch at night? We have listed five films to watch this holy week that will indeed impart good deeds and lessons.
Heaven is for Real
Based on a true story, this movie tells the story of a young boy who underwent surgery and ended up surviving and getting a glimpse of heaven. Heaven is for Real is brimming with moments of family love, strong faith, and respect for children’s spirituality.
This movie is about a pleasing boy named Magnifico who came from an impoverished family. Even as a young boy, he can touch everyone’s heart and inspires them with hope and the power of giving. Suppose there is something really good about this movie. In that case, it is about finding the suitable solution for every challenge we encounter without giving up.
The Pursuit of Happyness
The Pursuit of Happyness is based on a real-life story of a small family way back in 1981 in San Francisco. The story basically portrays a man with a child who has tasted the lowest point of his life and then, later on, stepped up through hard work and perseverance.
Before you start watching this movie, we highly recommend that you grab some tissues or a handkerchief. Yes, you will need them for this tearjerker film. Seven Sundays are about how a father makes efforts to have his children get along after a long time despite their hidden dissatisfaction with each other.
The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind
An adaptation of the young genius William Kamwamba’s life, the movie talks about a 13-year-old boy thrown out of school when his family can no longer afford the fees. With an aptitude for fixing small appliances, he sneaks into the library. He learns how to build a windmill to save his village from famine. This film is a creative tribute to a determined and compassionate African boy.
The holy week is just around the corner, so it would be better if you already have a list of indoor activities as early as now. Here is a tip for those who will watch these movies: if your home has a spacious living area, you can put a dark-colored curtain, turn off the lights, and add extra speakers for a more theater-like ambiance and cook buckets of popcorns. This sounds great, right?
