There Be Dragons from the Actors' Perspective
Iffy statements ("We're created to make mistakes...") but they're actors. And Joffe on "Child of God" is iffy too. (Too often we think of "child/son of God" as referring to everyone, regardless of their personal state (grace or sin), but a creature is not a child of God in virtue of being a creature, but in virtue of being elevated to a supernatural union with God. I don't doubt that what is taught by Opus Dei with regards to divine filiation is orthodox in this respect. If the movie is viewed with a proper understanding of grace and charity as love, then there probably won't be problems. But if love is understood as referring to natural love, then it may seem Pelagian.
