Nominated for an Oscar and created by Pixar. Pixar may be more "family-friendly" than Disney which owns it, but it doesn't mean that it isn't any less committed to the left. (Fat Asian-looking boy in Up? So Asian boys can't be fit boy scouts, they are nerdy, out of shape boy scouts?)

Pop culture (a variant of the proposition nation, if a dumbed down version) v. traditional Hindi culture -- no mention of [Anglo-]American culture.

I could see a Silicon Valley public school showing this movie. Because SJW.

An Alternative Benedict Option

Focused on the reform of Church life -- James Kalb. I would agree with this; while it may not be a long-lasting or successful solution, it is the only one for Catholics. (Even civic or political reform should be understood in this respect, though I would not completely agree with William Cavanaugh's seeming conflation of the two orders.)
