Keeping the Faith

This movie released in 2000 stars Edward Norton, Ben Stiller and Jenna Elfman. It’s a story about a priest, a rabbi and a girl whom both fell in love with. It’s a romantic comedy, really funny, but it also gives a glimpse of how Catholics and Jews are different from each other, yet alike at the same time. It also portrayed how faith plays a part in one’s life. Sort of. To a certain extent. Anyway, it’s a feel-good, entertaining movie. If you wanna borrow my vcd, feel free to ask moi. :)

BTW, Edward Norton did not just act in this movie—it was also his directorial debut. He also co-wrote the movie with his college buddy, Stuart Blumberg and also served as the Executive Producer of the soundtrack and the movie itself. Basically, it’s his pet project. Edward Norton... so leng chai, so multi-talented... SIGH. :P

Anyway, I really like this quote from the movie:

Father Brian Kilkenny Finn (EN’s character):
"It’s very important to understand the difference between faith and religion. Because faith is not about having the right answers. Faith is a feeling. Faith is a hunch, really. It’s a hunch that there’s something bigger connecting it all, connecting us all, together. And that feeling, that hunch, is God."

Faith. What is life without faith? I wonder.

Me love Edward Norton. I used to go watch his movies just for him. He acted in Red Dragon too right? As Will Graham.
