Jason's rating of the film Magic in the Moonlight

Magic in the Moonlight is (as befits its title) basically all champagne bubbles, but underneath the ridiculously opulent surface is a genuine, sober interrogation of faith which comes to a fairly Kierkegaardian resolution: faith works if it makes life work, regardless of whatever other considerations enter the picture. Also: desperate rationality and withholding of empathy are all about fear.
