M is for ‘Movies’: 11 Awesome Films and Documentaries About Spirituality.

Watching spiritually themed films can help you to feel inspired, uplifted and moved. This makes a nice change from watching movies with ridiculously unrealistic ‘romantic’ sex scenes that make you and your wobbly bits feel inferior; or scenes of violence that glamourize guns and portray punching someone in the face as a viable problem-solving strategy.  So for you Sensitives who prefer to fill your brains with more philosophical fayre, here are my top 11 movies and documentaries about spirituality, in no particular order. Click on the movie poster to watch the trailer. Is your favourite missing from the list? Click ‘leave a reply’ at the top left of this page to add your recommendations!
