Sure-Fire, Oscar-Winner “Ray" Definitely Worth Watching
- Thursday, October 28, 2004
Christians will flinch at the numerous depictions of drugs and sex in this film, as well as its language, which accurately portrays the honky-tonk bars and clubs of the rhythm-and-blues movement. That’s understandable. But it’s hard to tell a story about sin and its consequences without showing just that, and “Ray” serves as a powerful portrayal of life without Christ – something that some people just need to see to believe. It’s also a moving story about the ability to overcome great hardship, as well as how easy it would have been for Charles’ God-given talent to go to waste – something we might all think about. Thus, for most, “Ray” will be more than worth the time and money.
