Calvary – the movie… about ethical frameworks

http://www.abc.net.au/atthemovies/txt/s4031361.htm

Father James is a good priest faced with sinister and troubling circumstances brought about by a mysterious member of his parish. Although he continues to comfort his own fragile daughter and reach out to help members of his church with their various scurrilous moral- and often- comic problems, he feels sinister and troubling forces closing in, and begins to wonder if he will have the courage to face his own personal Calvary: knowing he could be murdered by one of his parishioners 7 days from today.

To me this was a great film on ethics. Individual rights, justice, and virtue…

Can unfettered individual rights, even for justice, sustain a society that in the mainstream seeks fairness, well being and collective prosperity, particularly for the disempowered?

About Bob Simpson

Bob is project manager of The Australian Media Engagement Project (AMEP). He believes that ethical and independent journalists are vital to the continuing freedom of Australian citizens. You could argue that In recent decades media organisations have subtly subverted journalism to their own private commercial interests, and away from an integrated sense of fairness, well being and shared prosperity in Australian society, especially for the disempowered. AMEP aims to change general media narratives towards greater fairness, well being and shared prosperity in Australia.
