Higher Ground

Navigating between faith and skepticism

I am drawn to small, character-driven films.

This one has been described as “…a haunting portrait of self-discovery” in the review by the New York Times.


It is directed by, and stars, Vera Farmiga, who played opposite George Clooney in Up In The Air.

What faith and doubt have in common is that both are hard work, and the hard-won wisdom of HIGHER GROUND is that human nature does not necessarily distinguish between saints and sinners.“*

I hope it makes you think.
