Love and Mercy in the Maelstrom: Images of Family in Modern Cinema

Part of the Conversations with Fr. Charlie Lecture Series, presented by Fr. Charlie Gordon and Dr. Karen Eifler, 4/12/16.  Seems like "family" should be a reliable place for finding comfort in tumultuous times. But you'd never suspect that by looking at many of the families in popular movies today. Is there ANYTHING positive to glean from the moms, dads, and grandparents we watch on the big screen? Here is a transcript of the presentation.
