Movies are the most powerful empathy machine in all the arts.

The great movies enlarge us, they civilize us, they make us more decent people.
— Roger Ebert

Great storytelling is powerful.

The art of cinema gives us an opportunity to step inside someone else’s story and see the world from a different perspective. The best ones capture a sense of wonder and in the process help us learn something about ourselves and the world around us. Movies transport us to another place and help us discover a reality different from our own - helping us to grow in empathy and decency.

Let’s watch some movies and become more decent people while we’re at it.
