Two very different movies in recent memory, The Truman Show (1998) and The Ladykillers (2004), share a similar subtext: faith. More precisely, through that subtext they both explore whether faith in God can survive various assaults. By analyzing the way each film answers this question I believe we can gain an insight into how the contemporary Western mind is handling this crossroads of conscience.
