I received this from the mailing list of the Society of Christian Philosophers.
"A Foreign Affair", written by Calvin Philosophy Major, Geert Heetebrij, is opening this weekend in LA, NY (I think), Phoenix and Grand Rapids. A Foreign Affair is a well-written, well-acted, well-filmed, well-just about everything you'd want in a movie. This is the clever story of two bumpkins traveling to St. Petersburg on a "romance tour" to find a Slavic beauty to be their wife (i.e., cook and housekeeper). David Arquette wonderfully plays a selfish oaf whose quest for a wife degenerates into a quest for romance blurred with lust. Tim Blake Nelson is business-like and rational in his search--romance, love and lust are far from his mind. Emily Mortimer is radiant as a reporter disgusted by these so-called romance tours. The film is both story and character driven. Each of the main characters discovers his or her true self. Without revealing the surprising ending(s), the movie is a deep and profound allegory of love. Although not explicitly Christian, it embraces Christian values. Geert has mortgaged his future on this movie. Go and see the movie and take all of your friends. Intelligent Christian filmmaking could use the support.
