As part of our ‘Theater and Theology’ series, we will be talking about the movie The Martian. Instead, of a commentary, here are some of my introductory reflections on a few of the film’s themes.

 Four of the main themes I saw running through the movie were:

1) Redemption

2) The coming together of community (think of the Body of Christ)

 3) When we feel alone, are we actually alone?

4) This may be the most expensive retelling of ‘the lost sheep parable’ ever!


Let me know what you saw in this movie!
